There’s nothing wrong with trumpeting good news - in any language.
Brock University’s Department of Applied Linguistics has learned that its accreditation with Teachers of English as a Subsequent/Second Language (TESL) Ontario has been renewed for 2013-14.
Teachers of adult ESL learners at Ontario institutions need to be TESL Ontario-accredited. Programs designed to educate these teachers as well as faculty members who deliver the courses also need to be accredited.
“Accreditation is not a given and needs to be renewed every year at this point. The process is time-consuming rather than difficult,” said Hedy McGarrell, graduate program director in Applied Linguistics.
