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. (*Ask about getting a certificate to support citizenship applications.)
