ESL (English as a Second Language)

ESL (English as a Second Language)

The ESL program is a free program provided by First Baptist Church. It is staffed with caring and committed teachers who want to engage our international community by teaching them English through conversation and by sharing with them the love of Christ!

Do you need help with your English? 

Come and visit us in our conversation classes. Different topics are covered every week, for instance: how to survive a Canadian winter, how to bake chocolate chip cookies, and how to find a good friend. We break into small groups for detailed conversation with a teacher, usually 1-3 students in each group. This method helps each student to have more time to converse and provides more individualized attention. We have 3 classes per week: 

  • Wednesday mornings - 10:30 -11:45 a.m. (Nursery available as needed)
  • Wednesdays evenings - 7:00 - 8:15 p.m. (Nursery and children's programs provided)
  • Sunday mornings - Bible class starting at 9:45 a.m.

For any information, including nursery care for your child or children for the morning session, please call our ESL Coordinator Marjorie Ediger at 1-519-476-7659 (cell).
