English as an Additional Language (EAL)

English as an Additional Language (EAL)

Good English language skills are very important to help newcomers settle in Saskatchewan. Strong English language skills are important for many reasons, such as:

• getting a job,
• going to school,
• accessing services,
• helping your children with school work,
• meeting and interacting with people,
• getting your Canadian citizenship. 

North West College provides basic to advanced English language classes focusing on speaking, listening, reading and writing based on real-life learning opportunities.  Classes are part-time, 6 hours per week, and are available from September to May. 

Free Language classes, funded by federal and provincial governments, are based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks and are offered in-class or online.

Steps to Attend Classes:

1. Complete a North West College EAL application form.
2. Get a CLBPT Assessment (Canadian Language Benchmarks Placement Test) - when the application is received, you will be scheduled for an assessment. The assessment will determine your current language skills. The Test takes approximately 2 hours.
3. Attend Classes - attendance expectation is 75%. If you are unable to attend due to distance, lack of childcare or conflict with work schedules, ask about referrals to online classes.
