What Learners Say

It took a lot to push myself to take this course because I was scared. But meeting friends going through the same thing was reassuring. Now I know it was worth it. I feel satisfied with myself. I feel fulfilled and proud about myself. It was much easier than I thought. The experience is everything, and I encourage everyone who hasn’t graduated to take part in it.


GED Exam Prep class

Moving from Quebec to Grande Prairie, my goal was to improve my English for travelling! I was comfortable with the small class. The teacher will not judgmental if I speak bad English. My teacher is amazing. She knows how to adapt to different peoples. I made friends in the class. This is the best English immersion class for me.
