Resources

Classes are based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB). The CLBs are the standards used in Canada in government-funded language learning and teaching. The Benchmarks describe what a person who is learning English can do in different situations at home, at school and at work. For more information, please see the Canadian Language Benchmarks Can Do Statements. Our courses use Portfolio-Based Language Assessment and language instruction is learner-centered and task-based. Language topics will be chosen in collaboration with other learners and the teacher to help meet individual needs for life in Canada.
