English as a Second Language

Over 600 students (including seniors) attend JIAS Toronto's LINC and ESL classes throughout the year. Not only are these classes a great way to update language skills, but they’re also a tremendous opportunity for newcomers to connect with one another.  We offer full-time, part-time, and evening classes.  For more information about our English classes, please contact our Toronto LINC school at 416.635.7044  or english-to@jiastoronto.org or our York Region LINC school at 905.761.5116 or english-yr@jiastoronto.org.

In addition to formal English classes, through our Conversation Cafe program, we provide an informal opportunity for newcomers to practice their conversational skills with English speaking volunteers.  Currently, this program is running in 2 locations:

  • Tuesday mornings 10:30 am at The Family Resource Centre (Promenade Mall, Thornhill)
  • Wednesday evenings 6:00 pm at Antibes Community Centre (off of Bathurst, between Finch & Steeles)

For more information about Conversation Cafe, please call 416.630.6481 x5440.
