Basic English

James Lyng Adult Education Centre offers English courses which are designed to develop the student’s language skills using social, professional and interpersonal situations that mirror real-life experiences. Over time, this will enable adult learners to communicate in the English language.

 CCBE in adult education offers programs of study in which each course falls under one of the following 3 instructional services: literacy services, preparatory services for secondary education, or Secondary Cycle One courses.

 CCBE programs were designed to help adult learners upgrade their skills and knowledge, bolster their autonomy in exercising their social roles, encourage their personal, intellectual and cultural growth and enable them to pursue their studies.

The Basic English Literacy is part of the Common Core Basic Education Program for adult learners.
