ESL Program

Gaining proficiency in English is a critical skill for many newcomers to our city. Every year, nearly 15,000 adults benefit from the TDSB's English as a Second Language Classes.

Winter 2022 Program

In January 2022, we anticipate a gradual opening of classes for in-person learning, subject to Toronto Public Health Guidelines. However, most classes are still online. Your instructor will advise you when your class will open for in-person learning.

Please do not go to the site without specific directions from the YMCA, your instructor, or by contacting the administration site below. You will be given specific instructions about returning to the site, if your in-person class is available.
