The courses are designed to help students with CLB 5 – 8 reduce gaps in their language skills. The courses also complement each other to develop students’ overall communicative competency.
EESE provides flexibility that accommodates the busy lives of newcomers by offering:
- 10-week sessions from September to June
- morning, afternoon and evening courses that allow students to create a schedule that fits their lifestyle
- a different course schedule every session, enabling students to take specific courses when it suits them.
We also offer a guided self-study program called Returning Studies (RS) for students who have completed the Writing and Reading Skills courses at EESE. Students come to RS in order to achieve their self-identified individual career and educational goals. Students are guided by facilitators. Facilitators personalize study plans for each student to help them reach their goals. The hours for self-study are flexible, allowing students to work independently in a minimum of 2-hour blocks. This flexibility fits well for students who may work in “survival” jobs and /or have family responsibilities. Students must complete 60 hours of study within 20 weeks.
