English as a Second Language for Beginners
English as a Second Language for Beginners 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
One-on-one classes tend to move faster than group classes, and most courses can often be completed within 30-40 hours.
Classes are usually twice a week for two hours, but students can take up to 6 hours of classes per week. Classes may be 1 or 2 hours.
Classes can be scheduled at any time between 10am and 9pm Monday to Friday.
Classes can be completed online or in our classroom.
We usually allow about 60 hours of classroom time for group courses.
Group courses take place in our classroom on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10am – 12pm.
Classes have a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 8 students.
