An investigation of Ontario ESL teachers’ strategies and perceptions for teaching Chinese international students in Ontario public schools.

Recent rapid increase in the number of Chinese international students with English as a second language (ESL) attending Canadian schools has led to the exploration of in-service ESL teachers’ teaching strategies towards these students. Working with View-Wide International Education Group and using multiple case studies, this study will articulate the nature and challenges of ESL teaching and identify various ESL instruction means.
