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.


Check out our online shop to see our many specialist publications written by experts in the field.
