English Language Training

Improve Your English

Assiniboine Community College offers daytime options for newcomers to Canada who are looking to improve their English skills. Our qualified, caring instructors teach English as a Second Language (ESL) for Canadian Language Benchmark levels 5-8. Assiniboine provides a friendly and relaxing atmosphere for you to come and enjoy a great learning environment and meet new people, while developing your English language skills.

Our ESL classes, taught by TESOL trained instructors, place equal emphasis on reading, writing, listening and speaking. Interactive technology is utilized in classrooms such as Smartboards. We offer in-class activities and out of class activities such as visits to the museum, Brandon Career Symposium and local community points of interest for enjoyable learning experiences about Canadian culture.

The program allows input into the topics covered in your classes; your needs are our priority. The instructors complete a needs assessment with students throughout the program so that relevant information is covered for each group.

We also offer a language lab with a variety of self-study English language computer software.
