Beginner English: Become Functional Fast

Beginner English

Beginner English focuses on the vocabulary and structures necessary to dealing with the day to day demands of life in Canada.

Participants practice reading, writing, speaking and listening as they become more functional and able to interact with the people around them.

There are four beginner levels – CLB 1-4.

As students progress between the four beginner levels they learn the language skills necessary to:

* understanding and giving instructions
* following and providing directions
* understanding and following procedures
* working, shopping, and holding simple conversations
