What is Literacy and Basic English?
Do you want to learn English? Are you unable to take LINC classes because you are a Canadian Citizen? Are Drop-In ESL classes too difficult for you to understand?
If you said yes to the above questions, the Literacy and Basic English program is for you. Our qualified instructors will teach you letters, numbers, and basic words in English. These lessons will help prepare you for daily life in Canada, and more advanced English classes, such as our Drop-In ESL Program.
