On February 20, 2016 ICA hosted the annual BC TEAL Vancouver Island Regional Conference. The Association of British Columbia Teachers of English as an Additional Language (BC TEAL), established in 1967, is an organization of educators dedicated to the growth and development of the profession of English language teaching. This was the first time ICA’s Language Services program had an opportunity to host such an event and it allowed us to show off not only our settlement language training (LINC) program, but also to highlight all the services offered at ICA for newcomers and the important community collaborations. Attendees were interested in learning more about what we do and some were keen to know how they could get involved. Below is a write up and pictures from the conference contributed by Jennifer Peachey, BC TEAL member.
