The Community Outreach course is targeted at newcomers who need English to function to the best of their ability in their communities and at work. Learners have many different learning goals, so a variety of skills and topics are covered in the classes, but reading, writing, listening, and speaking components are worked into each theme.
We offer EAL classes in four locations in Edmonton, with a variety of daytime and evening classes in order to reduce barriers for learners. Class content is based on learner identified goals, which might include language for employment, further education, or increased social and community involvement. The curriculum includes listening, speaking, reading, and writing activities. The program aims to give learners the language skills and knowledge of services they need to function comfortably and independently in their daily lives.
