One-on-One Learning

English Online Inc. provides the following one-on-one learning options:

LINC Home Study

LINC Home Study (LHS) is a language training program available to ESL learners who cannot attend a face-to-face class in Manitoba.

Once registered, you will be matched with an eFacilitator, who will monitor and assess your progress. You will be expected to use both the LHS and EO platforms to practise your language skills. You will receive a CLB certificate.

Listen to one of your colleagues talk about why she likes LINC Home Study.

e-Volunteer Program

You will be matched one-on-one with a Canadian Volunteer to help you practice your English language skills, settle and integrate into the community and grow your social and professional networks.

Through this program you can receive support to address your language needs, gain knowledge of life in Canada and awareness of community resources available, receive appropriate information related to the local labour market and make connections with established Canadians.
