LINC Blended

What is LINC Blended?

Do you want to learn English in a classroom setting? Are you unable to take regular LINC classes due to illness, disability, family, or work?

LINC Blended is a free program offered in two parts:

  1. Complete activities and lessons online every day through the CIES Learning Management System. You can log on anytime and work through the online classes.
  2. Attend class in person once per week (unlike LINC Home Study, which is completely online.)

Our qualified instructors will teach you English language skills to help you succeed in Canada. Your weekly visit to class is an opportunity to develop connections with your classmates, who are newcomers just like you.
