Class Schedules:

There are 3 terms for the ESL classes: Fall (September - November), Winter (January - March) & Spring (March/April - June). Each term is normally 10 - 12 weeks long. In-person classes are normally Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10 am - 12 pm (but there may be some exceptions for certain classes). We do not have classes on public/school holidays or the Lunar New Year Day.

Please note that our classes will have both English teaching and some form of Christian teaching (e.g., Christian songs, sharing, bible study, bible verses, stories, etc.). Also, we are not an accreditated ESL program and cannot provide certificates of English proficiency. However, we can provide certificates of attendance, if requested.

Please note that there are many other churches in Greater Vancouver that offer ESL. If you would like to be referred to another church ESL, please fill-in our General Contact form and request a referral as well as which city you are in and the class level you want.
