LINC Classroom Experience
LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada) provides language instruction in one of Canada's official languages to adult immigrants so that they may acquire the necessary language skills to integrate into Canadian society. The classroom experience is comprised of:
- Computer labs/audio
- Group discussions
- Guest presentations
Many events happen throughout the year. Some examples are:
Family Literacy Day: Celebrated on the 27th of January through games, activities and prizes to be won.
ESL Week: Celebrated annually in October, the LINC day class students were awarded 1st prize in the photo category, for their photo collage entitled "Life is Beautiful, Eh?".
Potluck: Held every winter holiday season. The LINC and Eh Café participants, friends, family, staff and volunteers gather to enjoy an evening of laughs and holiday food from around the world.
Attendance awards are awarded each term to one student from each class for having the best attendance.
Graduation certificates are awarded to students who have completed their current CLB level. There is no set time for this. It depends on how committed the student is. The more regular and consistent the attendance, the quicker they move through the levels.
