CCI-LEX - LEX Classes for immigrants


Part-time English as an Additional/Second language classes for adult permanent residents (new Canadian citizens, landed immigrants and refugees) taught by volunteer teachers.  Small fees apply.


Instruction for our General ESL classes includes reading, writing, speaking, listening and grammar.  LEX classes are taught by volunteer teachers who receive ongoing support and training in instructing ESL. The Learning Exchange offers part-time classes and continuous enrollment, which allows students to begin their course without long periods of waiting, provided there is class space available.
