We provide tutoring and classes for newcomers in our community. This includes conversation classes, language assessments and preparation for Immigration exams.
Learning English as a second language is much different from learning as a native English speaker. These programs are not just about grammar, spelling and vocabulary. Our ESL Learning Coaches bring fun and friendly learning into the classroom, and teach about things like culture, money, and living life in Canada. Our English Language programs are designed to help learners who are new to the English Language.
If you are new to the English language and looking to improve your English skills for work, citizenship, education or just to gain confidence with the language, we are here to help.
It is important to meet with our ESL Coordinator to determine which program would suit you best. Our Coordinator can let you know dates and time of programs available. Please call our office or stop by to arrange an assessment.
ECSF Grant 2020
Supporting Newcomers with Digital Education and Online Access
We are pleased to announce this collaboration between the Drayton Valley Multicultural Association and Drayton Valley & District Community Learning Association. This grant is supported by the Government of Canada's Emergency Community Support Fund and Drayton Valley Community Foundation.
We have now closed our intake for this new program to local newcomers and immigrants to our community, due to the amount of applications we have received.
This program will allow to offer ESL instruction virtually, as well as provide a number of newcomers with an appropriate device to access online learning opportunities, support and resources due to COVID-19 isolation.
Applications are being screened from adults who are in need of a Chromebook to participate in online learning or access information online, and;
have immigrated to our community from another country,
have limited financial resources, and
are isolated due to COVID-19.
