Students new to Canada complete English Language Assessments at the Welcome Centre before registering at Tamanawis. These tests help determine the placement of our ELL students.
ELL students are considered Direct or Indirect:
Direct students take 1+ ELL courses that build English skills. These courses include Language Development and Acadamic Language Building. Other ELL courses focus on Writing or Reading Strategies.
Indirect students do not enroll in ELL classes but are monitered by a case manager and are offered individual tutoring, classroom adaptations and extra time and a seperate setting in order to complete assignments or tests.
