LINC Literacy

What Is LINC Literacy?

The LINC Literacy Program is comprised of four levels of language literacy training: Foundation L, CLB 1L, CLB2L, CLB3L, CLB4L. The LINC Literacy levels are targeted towards immigrants with limited, interrupted or no formal education and who are non-literate or semi-literate in their native tongue. The class will consist of numeracy and digital literacy. The teaching approach is slower, more repetitive, and involves more TPR and visual supports than the regular LINC classroom. The activities relate directly to student needs and are more practical than academic in nature.

On-site parking is also available to students for 15$ a month (full-time). Childminding services are available with our CNC Program.
