Learning English


With its large population of newcomers, there are many courses, programs and training options available in Peel Region to help you learn English. Whether you are a beginner or want to improve your English language skills, there are opportunities and resources available to help you and your family, including:

English Language Skills Assessment

You need to get your current English language skills tested before you can register for any language classes. Contact your nearest Language Assessment Centre to book an appointment.

A language assessment is not a pass-fail test. It is a way to find out which class would benefit you the most. After your assessment, you will receive information about when and where to register and what school you will attend. For more information read - Language Assessment - What you need to know (pdf)

You can also use the online English language self assessment tool to find out your current language level before doing a formal language assessment.

English Conversation Practice

Some of the Brampton Library and Mississauga Library branches offer English Conversation Circles for newcomers by providing informal free English conversation classes for adults and youth. These classes can help you build your vocabulary and gain confidence by practicing speaking English in a friendly environment.
