Drop-In ESL

What is Drop-In ESL?

Do you want to learn English? Are you unable to take LINC classes because you are busy with work, school or your family? We offer flexible Drop-In classes for landed immigrants, refugees, and Canadian citizens, where you can learn to speak English as a Second Language.

Taught by qualified volunteer instructors, this class will teach you the English needed to understand life in Canada. We offer three different levels of Drop-In ESL: pre-basic, basic, and intermediate/advanced.
