Two different English Classes will run in July & August. Register today to participate in the fun activities with the summer classes.
Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC)
VDISS provides free English classes for eligible immigrants 17 years and older. Students learn English through settlement-related topics to help learn about Canada, British Columbia and our local community. Joining the class is a great way to meet other newcomers in the community, prepare for the Canadian citizenship application and practice all four language skills (listening, speaking, reading & writing). Childcare is offered free of charge to eligible parents.
Topics covered in the classes include (but are not limited to):
- Community resources, events and attractions
Activities that LINC students have had the opportunity to participate in include:
- Potlucks & social events
- Field trips to local parks, festivals and service agencies
- Volunteering in the community
