The Fall 2014 Newsletter is Now Available!

Welcome to the Fall 2014 Issue of the TEAL News.

Teaching in the English as a second language field can leave us feeling almost as if we are in a state of permanent flux. This is mainly caused by the changing nature of our classrooms: the countries our students come from; their reasons for coming and their intended length of stay—temporary or permanent. As well, for those of us who work with immigrants, this state of flux is also caused by changes in government policy: who gets funded, when, where, and for how long.

This state of flux is just one ESL reality. In this issue, you will find different explorations of this theme.
