First time students at agape



At Agapé Language Centre, we are happy to welcome newcomers to Canada. For more than 17 years, it has been our mission to help learners improve their English-language skills, understand Canadian culture, make new friends and feel more at home. We do this by providing a positive learning environment with professionally trained teachers who focus the language instruction on real-life settlement themes.



The Programs at Agapé are all part-time programs, offering students flexibility as they manage family, work, and studies. Each term begins with needs assessment and goal-setting activities in order to tailor the instruction to learners' immediate needs. Students typically express an interest in settlement themes such as employment, housing, education, health, and citizenship. Within these themes, instruction at Agapé is centered around real-life tasks so that students learn both the language and its application in everyday situations.

Our assessment of language proficiency is based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks and LINC students are placed in classes that match their benchmark targets.


Events at AgapÉ

Conversation Circles, typically held five times per year, includes discussions on topics such as current events, vacations, politics, shopping, study strategies, employment training, and post-secondary choices.
