Welcome to BC TEAL. We hope this website provides a central meeting place and on-line community for EAL professionals throughout BC. Our goal is to advance the profession of teaching English as an additional language by facilitating  professional development for all of our members.

The EAL Week Special Newsletter is Now Available!

Does this sound familiar? It is the end of a long, long week. A week during which you feel more went wrong than went right. A week where everything was topsy-turvy. If you have felt like this (and even if you have not), read this newsletter as it will turn your world right side up again.

This special edition contains stories from our learners. Last November, as a part of EAL Week, we wanted to focus on our learners’ successes, so we asked them to share stories about how learning English in B.C. has made their lives better.  Well, they did, and the stories were so interesting, inspiring and funny that we decided they needed to be shared. Read Jackson Chien’s poem ”Open the Door.”  Read What Tracy Chen gained. Read what happened to Jesong at the bus stop.

I am really proud to have been involved in the making of this, my last newsletter as editor.
