English as a Second Language (ESL)
The English as Second
Language (ESL) Program is free for
immigrants and to those Canadians whose mother tongue is not English.
Adult students may register and begin classes at any time during the school
year (September - June). This is a very flexible program offered to adults.
The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of each student whether at the
beginning, intermediate or advanced level. The personal approach to
education, combined with a balance between academics, social skills, Canadian
culture and Canadian language development, will prepare the learner for future
academic studies, employment and living in Canada. This program is funded by the Ontario
Ministry of Culture and Immigration (MCI). The program has a qualified ESL
Instructor and is located at Chippewa Secondary School. (Note: For ESL students that do not qualify
under MCI, a fee for service is possible dependant of enrolment.)
