What does ENL and ESL mean?

October 27, 2021

ENL stands for English Native Learner, while ESL means English as a Second Language.

We define native speaker students (ENL) as children who speak English at home and/or who have attended an English-medium school for two years or more. The English as a Second Language courses (ESL) are for children who have studied or are currently studying English but have not lived in a native English environment.
