LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION
FOR NEWCOMERS TO CANADA (LINC)

LINC program is for adult immigrants and refugees (18 years of age or older) who need to develop necessary language and life skills to actively function in the Canadian society.  The program offers the development of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills based on Canadian Language Benchmarks.

The LINC classes focus on learning approaches and instruction that can effectively facilitate language development in the learners. The program also provides computer skills and sociolinguistic and cultural awareness through real world tasks. The learners are assessed through PBLA i.e. Portfolio Based Language Assessment. 

 

At Centre for Newcomers we offer full-time and part-time LINC classes as well a Provincial Online Model which accommodates students from all over the province of Alberta. These classes are free of cost and can be joined anytime of the year. The childcare services are available for children 19 months to 5 years. The LINC classes offered at CFN are:
