For students who are unable to attend part-time classes, but still wish to have classroom interaction, we offer the LINC Blended Program (LBP). This program is offered in two parts: a once-per-week classroom instruction, and self-directed weekly activities completed online. Classes are offered to clients with benchmarks 3-3-3-3 to 5-5-6-6 who are unable to attend regular LINC classes due to illness, disability, conflicting work schedules, or their role as a family caregiver, but are still able to attend one weekly in-class instruction (unlike LINC Home Study which is completely online).
Each week students attend one in-person class, led by a qualified English instructor who provides English language training and essential skills, life skills and cultural awareness about Canada. This also gives students time to interact with other newcomers like themselves and develop new networks, friendships, and partnerships for their settlement process.
After this weekly class, students return home and begin exercises and activities that are hosted on the CIES Learning Management System (a website dedicated to online learning). It is here that digital lessons, mirroring the in-class curriculum, provide at-home guidance for students to continue their studies. LBP students can log on anytime and work through the online classes to complete their learning objectives, as well as communicate with their fellow classmates and interact with their LBP instructor.
Classes are free of charge and provide self-driven students the opportunity to further their English skills in a classroom and at-home environment. Classes require a basic familiarity with computers with internet access.
