Mrs. Sander

Welcome! Bienvenido! Dobrodošli! Maligayang pagdating!Bienvenue! Benvenuto! Witamy!


Welcome to English as a Second Language!  I am very happy to meet students and their families who have come from many different countries all over the world, including South Korea, Vietnam, the Philippines, Croatia, Nigeria, El Salvador, Italy, Honduras, Ghana, Mexico, Holland, Togo, Cameroon, Sudan and Uganda.

In your classes you will be working on practical skills and engaging activities that will help improve your English Language Proficiency. This will help you become more confident in using your English language skills in both formal and social settings.  You will also learn about Canadian customs, values and social expectations and will hopefully share your cultural background and experiences with your teachers and classmates.

Following is a list of excellent on-line resources that can help you improve your English Language Proficiency:


Mango Languages (available with a membership at the Lethbridge Public Library)

Merriam-Webster visual dictionary:

Google Translate:

Dave’s ESL Café (go under stuff for students):


If you have any questions, you can e-mail me at:


My door is always open if you need some help or support.  Hope you have a great year at St. Francis Junior High!
