Hello there,

My aunty has been a Canadian citizens for many years but her English level is too low to navigate independently or access work. She would like to improve her English but being a citizen she is not eligible for many language services. Are there any free English Language classes that citizens are eligible for in Hamilton, Ontario?

Hi there,

Thank you for reaching out and sharing your question with us, I highly suggest that you reach out and dial 211 on a phone for free and speak to an information and referral specialist for a referral to free or low cost ESL services in your area as a citizen. 211 is a free, confidential service that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You may be able to find some helpful information in our Settlement.Org article here, Where can I take ESL classes?

We hope this information is helpful. Please reach out to us if you have any further questions.

Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org team

The library offers free English conversation circles where your aunt can practice speaking English with others in a casual setting. Check the library's website or contact your local branch for schedules and registration information.
