English (or French) as a Second Language (ESL/FSL)

ESL or FSL lessons are led by trained instructors in a classroom setting. Students will improve their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, as well as learn about Canadian culture. Classes range from beginner to advanced levels. The programs are based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks and are provincially-funded. Classes are free for permanent residents, refugees, live-in-caregivers, and Canadian citizens. Fees for visitors to Canada will apply.

Simcoe County District School Board, Adult and Continuing Education offer ESL classes in Barrie, Bradford, Alliston, Collingwood, Midland, and Orillia.
