Trent-ESL Blended English Language Learning Program (TBELL)
The T-BELL program is Trent-ESL at Trent University’s newest innovation in language education. Through this blended learning model, universities around the world easily implement a discipline-specific English language program to complement academic programs and internationalize curricula. The T-BELL program provides the TESL faculty on your campus a complete resource package through an online platform and provides a full curricula on which to base your English language program. Each course is offered as an English for Specific Purposes (ESP) resource and will launch language learning with direct relevance to academic programs of study. These courses can be used to enhance English language skills across the university, both as an English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program, and to develop English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI)
Through our partnership with SMRT English, TBell independently develops English language courses to facilitate university partnerships through curricular exchange. The SMRT platform, a distinctly Canadian development, provides an engaging stage for language acquisition. A range of technology devices, such as laptops and tablets, become the medium for connecting university students to outstanding quality academic English programs tailored to their discipline of study.
