Thomas Merton’s Adult Language Programs for newcomers to Canada offers LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada), ESL (English as a Second Language) and FSL (French as a Second Language). In addition, we also offer online and in-class courses in occupation-oriented language training as part of the SLT (Specialized Language Training) program.
All of the language training courses are designed to engage the learner by focusing on developing strengths in reading, writing, listening and speaking. These courses follow the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) standards.
These programs operate out of three convenient locations in Halton region – Milton, Oakville and Burlington.
