English and English as a Second Language (ESL)

“Literacy is about more than reading or writing – it is about how we communicate in society. It is about social practices and relationships, about knowledge, language and culture. Those who use literacy take it for granted – but those who cannot use it are excluded from much communication in today’s world. Indeed, it is the excluded who can best appreciate the notion of “literacy as freedom.”  (UNESCO, Statement for the United Nations Literacy Decade, 2003–2012).

"By words we learn thoughts, and by thoughts we learn life."  (Jean Baptiste Girard).
