Drop in ESL @ CIES

The Drop-in ESL Program @ CIES was an original and innovative project that started in our earliest days of the organization. A program designed to help newcomers with their overall communication skills, Drop-in ESL has weekly themes and practical subjects directly related to Canadian culture, daily living, and employability skills, which aid our clients to integrate into Canadian society.The greatest part about it is you can come in a for a few hours everyday, either afternoon or evening, making it easily accessible for those who have schedules not suitable to traditional classroom hours. Funded by Alberta Human Services, it is one of our few programs even open to Canadian citizens.

Although there are other Calgary organizations who offer drop-in conversation or activities based classes, we are the only immigrant settlement service in the city who offer structured, thematic drop -in lessons, complete with syllabus, set by level and delivered in a classroom environment with other students from the day a client is assessed by our in-house language ability measurement system. More details can be found below.
