About AACE

All About Communicating in English represents the creative TESOL professionals who have made the dedicated effort to independently publish their own “tried and true” materials.

Learning activities in these books are student centered. The content is meaningful for supporting global citizenship and global awareness.

AACE chooses to mainly distribute reproducible materials to help learners and institutions save money.

The development, publishing and other costs have been borne by the authors – teachers just like you.  The authors have set the prices as well. Therefore, AACE cannot supply examination copies of these reproducible books.

AACE was established on 04/04/04.

About Janice GT Penner: BRE,  BEd,  MEd.

I began my TESOL journey in the summer of 1979 as a volunteer in Japan.  I have taught all levels of learners in colleges and universities in Edmonton, AB, Vancouver, BC, Taipei, ROC, Beijing, PRC, and Kyoto, Japan (secondment). Since 1996, I have been a full-time faculty member at Douglas College, New Westminster/ Coquitlam, BC.

I also have had the pleasure of instructing in teacher education programs in Beijing, China (middle school teachers), at SFU (Korean teachers), Vancouver Community College (Core Course – Writing). Roles for the Douglas College (TESL Canada Standard 2) program have included coordination and practicum directorship.  Since 2006, I have also supported volunteer teachers in faith-based ESL programs.  Being on the BC TEAL board since 2010 has also been rewarding.
