A Survey of the Teaching of English as a Second Language in Canada, June 1967-68.
Newsham, Gwen
The purpose of this study was to examine, by means of questionnaires, programs for the teaching of English as a Second Language in Canada from June 1967 to June 1968. Programs considered were those provided by publically-supported agencies, other than those provided by universities for their own students. A brief survey of facilities for teacher training was included. Special concerns mentioned by those answering the questionnaires included the need for (1) training for ESL teachers in adult programs; (2) more communication between workers in the ESL field in Canada; (3) more ESL courses; (4) a system of inter-provincial visits for the French-speaking systems to improve their teachers' fluency in English; and (5) more information about the availability and value of ESL teaching programs and materials. Appended to this report is a listing of universities in the Montreal region which offer academic preparation for ESL specialists. (AMM)
