Inventory of English Language Training for Non-Native Speakers of English at the Post-Secondary Level in English-Medium Institutions in Canada.
Kidd, Richard, Comp.; Burnaby, Barbara, Comp.
This inventory of 75 English language training facilities in Canadian colleges and universities was compiled to assist the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) in identifying suitable sources of English language support for trainees in its projects. No evaluation of programs is implied. Program entries are presented by province and follow a similar format including five descriptive categories: general description (the nature of the instructional unit, programs offered, status of the program for preparing visa students for further study at the institution, and anticipated program changes); English language teaching staff and resources (staff qualifications and experience, language laboratory, library and/or resource center, and study facilities); student placement and evaluation (entrance, placement, and promotion criteria); more specific program information (duration and timing, fees, class size and grouping, student characteristics, course offerings, responsibility for syllabus, supplementary academic or cultural orientation, and assistance offered for mainstream academic assignments); and past experience with CIDA-sponsored students and lead times required for accommodation of foreign student groups. Each entry also includes the name, address, and telephone number of a contact person. (MSE)
