This course builds on students’ previous education and language knowledge to introduce them to the English language and help them adjust to the diversity in their new environment. Students will use beginning English language skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing for everyday and essential academic purposes.

The course also provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to begin to adapt to their new lives in Canada.
