Essential Skills Upgrading
Free English reading, writing, math and computer classes in Toronto for adults
The Essential Skills Upgrading program is now closed for the summer. We will open for new registrations on August 22, 2022. We will be happy to speak with you at that time about the services our program provides and how you may join one of our classes.
Our daytime classes begin on September 12, 2022 and our evening classes begin on September 19, 2022.
Our Introduction to Computers workshops and Essential Skills for the Workplace workshops will also be starting in September.
We look forward to speaking with you!
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.
