LELL - Literacy for English Language Learners

Program Description

This program is for immigrants with little or no formal education. There are 6 levels in this program, pre-CLB to CLB 5. You will work one-to-one with a tutor to learn how to read and write in English and to develop listening, speaking, numeracy and digital skills. Some of the literacy skills you will learn in this program are – learning strategies, vocabulary, reading, writing, grammar, sounding out words, and spelling. Our program will help you develop your general English skills for day-to-day living, like making a doctor’s appointment, asking for help in a supermarket, filling out forms, getting a library card or talking to your child’s teacher.

Meetings are for a few hours each week at a time that works for you.
