Today’s economy is increasingly globalised, and this means that many of us are interacting across cultures in a way we never did before. In such an economy, the importance of learning a second language becomes self-evident.
English as a second language has become so popular. In fact, English is now the world’s most widely spoken second language, surpassing all others. More people now speak English as a second language than as their first language.
English is the gateway to a world of knowledge, commerce, and culture,
English is the key to participating in the global conversation.
Today’s English language learners are a diverse collection of immigrants, businesspeople, students, and artists who share a dedication to the English language and a love of learning. Teaching English as a second language to these students is an honour and a privilege, one that we as AIEL educators share with all of those who strive to give students the tools they need to take on new enterprises and reach for their dreams.
The gift of a second language is a window onto a new world, bringing into focus a wealth of conversation, information, and understanding that would otherwise be forever closed to the students who seek to learn a new language.
AIEL English will provide quality courses in reading, writing, speaking, comprehending and conversational English as a second language.
