About our ESL Program

We are an adult 'English as a Second Language' school offering morning ESL classes throughout the week. Our staff show that they care as they work with English Language Learners. The continuous Drop-in ESL program helps adults who are new to Canada improve their overall English proficiency levels. 

Our teachers are skilled at developing weekly themes and practical subjects and relate them directly to daily living and employable skills. This will help you as an ESL participant integrate smoothly into Canadian society. 

We offer three levels of classes: Pre-Basic (Monday mornings), Basic (Tuesday mornings), and Intermediate (Thursday mornings). This program is great for those who have to fit classes around family responsibilities, work schedules or those who are not eligible for the LINC program. All classes are free for refugees to Canada.
