English Learning Project
Seeing immigration levels in Winnipeg triple since 2005, as well as an influx of international students in the community, there is a rising number of residents who do not fluently speak English (60% of children in the Pembina Trails school division alone). Many of them are international professionals unrecognized by Canadian standards which are unable to work in their given field, but must complete a comprehensive English test to remain in Canada. This language barrier makes integrating into a new community challenging and hinders the access of services in that community.
The English Learning Project is a 10-week conversational English program for newcomers to Canada. Adults can expect a lesson which will consist of discussing current events around the world and practicing regular, daily interaction style conversation through the use of scripts and role-playing. Children will enjoy creative and interactive lessons involving play, crafts, and conversation.
