they would like to know the differences in learning styles between children and adults.
they are interested in cultural diversities in the classroom.
they want to learn about issues concerning immigrant children in Canadian schools
Students completing a Minor in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) are not certified to teach in Alberta.
Students planning to complete a Minor in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) should check with an Advisor early in their studies so that they can ensure that they meet all requirements before graduation. Most courses at the 3000 and 4000 level have prerequisites, so students should consider those prerequisites when selecting their 1000 and 2000 level courses.
