Key Points of Linguistics for ESL teachers

By Douglas Magrath


ESL instructors need to understand how languages work to be better able to serve the student population. Language is what makes us human, and it's something no other creature has. How are language and thought connected? Does language determine thought? The ostensible purpose of language is to transmit thoughts from one mind to another. Language represents thought, but does it also determine thought? Take the example of colours. Different speakers perceive colours differently.

It’s Rewarding to be Bilingual!

Do you know Canadian students who are going into the first year of a
college or university program? They could receive a $3,000 bursary to
study partly or entirely in French in a program that interests them. Not
only will they learn about other cultures; studies show that
bilingualism leads to better jobs and higher salaries. Watch this video
[21] to find out more about the benefits of bilingualism.

Help your students reap the rewards of being bilingual! Find out more:
