The Essential Skills Upgrading (ESU) program provides free adult classes in Toronto to help learners improve their English reading and writing, mathematics, and computer skills. Our free adult classes are available in many locations across Toronto in Etobicoke, Bloor Street, Rexdale, North York and Scarborough.
We consider reading, writing, math and computer skills “essential” because we know they can be the foundation to a bright, new future. While ESU is a non-credit adult learning program, improving your reading, writing, and math skills:
- increase your employment opportunities.
- prepare you for high school, college, apprenticeship, or certificate programs.
- can help you gain more confidence and independence.
