Nanaimo Language Centre
It is our goal to equip all our young ELL students with the fundamental literacy skills which will enable them to perform at an academic level consistent with the BC board of education's prescribed learning outcomes. We use a scaffolding approach which moves students progressively toward stronger understanding and greater independence in the learning process. As most of our students are already immersed in an English- speaking environment through which oral communication skills are continually developed, emphasis is placed on developing strong cross-curricular reading and writing skills.
Course: FUN! FUN! FUN!!! (Grades 1 - 3)
Fundamentals: phonics, spelling, high frequency vocabulary, parts of speech, sentence structure, and writing conventions. Functional Language: introduction to vocabulary and phrases which allow students to express themselves and to describe and relate to their environment.
