A message from Peta Ullmann, NALDIC Chair
NALDIC is the national subject association for English as an additional language. NALDIC provides a welcoming, vibrant, professional forum for learning more about English as an Additional Language (EAL) and bilingual learners in schools. You don’t have to be an EAL teacher or EAL specialist to join us. We welcome members from a range of settings, schools and organisations. Our mission is to promote the effective teaching and learning of EAL and bilingual pupils across the UK.
NALDIC Update April 2016
Firstly, can I thank you for your continued support. Your support is so important as collectively we can ensure that the needs of children and young people with English as an additional language are talked about, recognised and valued within our ever changing education system. As the national subject association for English as an additional language we have a responsibility to challenge unfair practice, ill-informed policies and poor guidance about English as an additional language.
Our website is still under development and we apologise for any inconvenience this has caused. We are planning on launching our new website in summer...”

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.
We promote EAL research, understanding and best practice and promote plurilingualism within our multilingual society. Our website is full of information about EAL and EAL learners.
