About Us

The Centre for English Language Learning, Teaching and Research (CELLTR) provides Simon Fraser University (SFU) students, staff and faculty with teaching and learning services that support them in SFU’s multilingual and multicultural environment.

CELLTR embraces a holistic and proactive approach to English language teaching and learning. It aims to conceptualize, deliver and promote a comprehensive range of English as an Additional Language (EAL) support services across the university. These support services will foster interdisciplinary collaborations and close working relationships with all SFU Faculties and Units, as well as offer students EAL supports that respond to their academic, social and cultural needs as they transition into and through the university.

The Centre will help cultivate innovative research-based teaching and learning practices that will support the SFU community to engage positively and effectively with the culturally diverse environments of today’s globalizing and internationalizing world.
