A message from Yvonne Foley, NALDIC Chair
NALDIC is the national subject association for English as an additional language (EAL). Our mission is to promote the effective teaching and learning of EAL and bilingual pupils in UK schools. We provide a welcoming, professional forum to learn more about EAL and bilingual learners.
Check out our online shop to see our many specialist publications written by experts in the field. (Members can download most of our publications for free from the Members' Resources area - remember to sign in first otherwise the publications will not display!)
We also run the lively and informative EAL-Bilingual Google Group where you can post queries and discuss issues with other people involved in EAL (click on the speech bubble icon below to see the latest postings!) . It is a closed list so if you would like to join please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
NALDIC also runs Regional Interest Groups for our members up and down the country - why not get involved locally with yours?
We offer a variety of NALDIC training opportunities complemented by the work of consultants on our NALDIC Associate Members Directory. So, if you are looking for a trainer, see what we have to offer. If you are looking for a training event then check out our Events Calendar. We also recommend attending our annual conference, which this year will be about EAL Pedagogy in the UK: Principles to Practice. It will take place in November 2014. The presentations from our 2013 conference are now available.
We promote EAL research, understanding and best practice and promote plurilingualism within our multilingual society.
