LINC stands for Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada. At Educacentre, LINC provides basic level English training for adult immigrants to Vancouver.

Government-funded, classes are free to students and focus on basic conversation, writing and reading. The aim is to convey essential knowledge for a newcomer: health care, housing, employment, banking, legal and political system, as well as other aspects of Canadian society. LINC also allows students to acquire basic language skills that will facilitate job search and integration. LINC classes regularly connect with the community through field trips and local speakers.

Educacentre est un bon centre pour apprendre l’anglais. Vu que nous ne sommes pas très nombreux, cela nous permet de participer en classe, et l’ambiance est très amicale entre les étudiants, les professeurs et le personnel.

The outside activities were very interesting. Workshops were useful to learn Canadian culture. To bring guests from different kind of services was a great idea.
