EAL (English As An Additional Language)

A place to start the search for materials to support learning English, no matter your level.


Welcome to the EAL (English as an Additional Language) Guide

It's hard to start looking for library materials and significantly harder in an unfamiliar language. This guide serves the students and staff at Red River's Language Training Centre and students needing extra help in pronunciation, writing, or speaking. 

Each page has books taking you to an entire library record to see where it's located or click links to find more books like the featured titles. As always, library staff are here to help support the goals of EAL students and their instructors.

Self-Directed Modules: Students can self-enroll in a number of Learn modules to develop their skill levels through independent study.

Pre-Program Language Readiness: From general readiness to career-specific areas, each section has downloadable sheets to gauge language readiness for reading, writing, and even college skills. There are also a further list of supports for further information.
