Dear Parents / Students:

My name is Esaine Mo, one of the Settlement Workers with the Vancouver Board of Education, looking after the schools in the UBC catchment. We’re very excited to be able to work with an VSB ELL teacher to offer parents a session again on using online resources to help their child learn English.

The speaker is an ELL and Mandarin teacher at one of our VSB Secondary Schools who holds a Master of Education in Language Arts from University of Victoria. She has searched extensively of the online resources, which can be easily accessed by parents and students to assist their language acquisition. The objectives of the session were to offer hands-on Internet resources to ELL parents so they’d be able to use the information to help their child learn English. The speaker will demonstrate to parents how to use the online resources to help students/themselves learn phonics, vocabulary, reading, grammar and writing skills. Secondary students are also welcome to join. We had the same session held at our DRPC which attracted approximately 120 parents with overwhelmingly positive feedback and would be pleased to offer the opportunity to those parents who missed it last time.

Please note that the session introduction will be conducted in English with Chinese interpretation. However, the website demonstration will mainly be delivered in Mandarin while the websites are all visually self-explanatory in English, just to save more time for Q&A.

Because the focus of the workshop is on using online materials, we are asking the parents to register the session online as a way to, hopefully, ensure that they know how to access Internet. Space is limited; once it reaches the maximum capacity we will close the registration. Please see the attached flyer for all details and click “Register” for online registration.

Should you have any questions or encounter any difficulties registering, please feel free to contact Esaine Mo at 778-228-8536 or email at emo@vsb.bc.ca

Thank you!
