ESL Programs

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.

Fall 2021-2022 Program

We anticipate a gradual opening of classes with in-person learning. Once in a virtual class, your instructor will advise you when your location will open for in-person learning. If you are not in a class, please check with an administration site (see below chart) to see which sites are available for virtual or in-person classes.

Pre-registration starts Sept 1, 2021. Contact one of the Administration Sites below. Choose the class location you prefer by checking the ESL brochure (coming soon).

 

 

Administration Sites

Note: Do not go to any ESL location without checking with an administration site. All sites are currently closed and classes will start online starting September 7, 2021.
