ESL Workplace Training (for professionals)
Workplace ESL assists professionally trained newcomers with the language skills needed to compete in the local Labour market. By combining job search training (resumes, cover letters, and portfolio development) with an ESL focus in soft skills development (communicating with co-workers, problem solving and group dynamics) we can teach adults how to successfully transition into a Canadian work environment.

Training students to improve their listening/speaking, pronunciation and presentation skills will be essential for interacting and socializing with coworkers in the workplace. Recognizing common workplace vocabulary including the use of idioms, slang and phrasal verbs will assist learners in developing their use of the English language.
More specifically, we examine health and safety as well as the rights and responsibilities of employees in the workplace as well as workplace etiquette, including the use of email, telephone and interview techniques. These expectations will be met during the morning lesson. The afternoon focuses on an ESL Business curriculum that encourages learners to improve their current knowledge and communication skills in situations that align with our local business methods and standards.
Learners will be assisted in developing the language skills within a given theme where students are learning business language more accurately, in a hands-on environment.
Successful students who complete the in-class component of Workplace ESL (Morning/Afternoon) will be able to fulfill a work placement and match their transferable skills to local careers in demand through CanPlace.
Our classes are developed and delivered by TESL Certified Instructors in an academic and workplace focused environment.
