International and Indigenous Languages Elementary Program

International and Indigenous Languages Elementary Program

Would you like your child to learn a new language or experience the culture and traditions of your heritage language? You have come to the right place!

The International and Indigenous Languages Elementary (IILE) Program is offered through the Halton Catholic District School Board through Thomas Merton Adult & Continuing Education.

For over 20 years, we have implemented a fun and exciting way to enrich language learning. The main goal of the program that we offer students is to develop and/or maintain the ability to listen, speak, read and write the language of their heritage or4 a new language. Through this program, students will also learn about the culture and heritage associated with the language.

The International and Indigenous Languages Program is available to ALL elementary students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 Free of charge.
