International Language Instruction – Elementary NON-CREDIT Program
The International Language Elementary (ILE) program offers children an opportunity to learn and/or maintain a language other than French or English and to develop an appreciation and sensitivity to the cultural diversity within Canada.
International Languages Elementary classes provide academic instruction in languages other than English and French. Classes run 2.5 hours per week from September 9, 2017 to June 16, 2018. Classes run on PD days. The program is closed from Saturday to Monday on long weekends as well as during school breaks (Christmas break for the ILE program starts on December 18th).

Fees and exceptions
Students are eligible to attend one 2.5 hour class in any one language one time per week, however they can take a separate or dual language program in a second language without paying any additional fees for program instruction, (ex. a student can attend one Arabic class on Mondays, one Simplified Chinese class on Tuesdays and one Traditional Chinese class on Thursdays for just the $10 per student per course consumable fee).
If you wish to enrol your child in more than one class in the same language, a fee of $200 per student per additional course is applicable (ex. a student can attend one Arabic class on Monday for the consumable fee of $10 and a second Arabic class on Saturday for a program fee of $200 for the second class). Fees are payable at the CCE Main Office located at the Hill Park Learning Centre, 465 East 16th Street, Hamilton (open effective September 1, 2017).
