Summer Course

A word cloud relating to summer and community learning.

In the summer of 2018, English Online will be delivering our Summer Course for the 6th time! Yay! We thought it was the time for – drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrum-roll, please – revamping the course!  We are working hard to get everything ready before the course begins in July.  Please wait for the weekly activities to be published shortly.

English Online’s Summer Course is a 9-week course for immigrants to Manitoba. Its purpose is to provide a flexible learning environment for English practice and community networking, along with an introduction to summertime life in Manitoba. The complete facilitated course was first offered by English Online in 2013.
