LINC Home Study
LINC Home Study is a federally funded, distance education program for newcomers to Canada who wish to improve their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. Our clients face barriers to attending regular English language classes for reasons such as childcare, employment scheduling conflicts and health issues.
Our clients study independently and receive one-on-one instruction based on the Canadian Language Benchmark standards. The study options available are either online (client requires a computer with internet access) or correspondence (client receives a book and CD). Our TESL- certified instructors conduct one-on-one instructional sessions with their clients by phone or VoIP on a weekly basis.
