ESL Learning Experiences of Immigrant Students in High Schools in a Small City
AbstractImmigrant students who attend high schools in small Canadian cities are likely to be few in each school. Consequently, they may receive limited English as a second language (ESL) services and support by school personnel. This study aimed to acquire a deeper understanding of the organization and provision of ESL services in high schools in a small city with few immigrant students. Results indicate that the limited ESL support and services available in these schools pose challenges to the educational success of these students; however, sufficient resources and support would enable meeting their educational needs better, even given their low numbers. Suggestions for improvements are provided.
