What level are you?
A1 to C2 refers to the Common European Framework way of describing levels.
If you are not sure at which level you would be in the language you want to learn, then you can test it by doing a self-evaluation. Simple, but surprisingly accurate.

Our 'Regular' Session Dates
Our 'regular' course schedule reflects our 'regular' community life. Summers are all too short and, of course, people want to enjoy it. So we have a reduced schedule. By the end of the summer, people are ready to think about taking courses again.
During the summer, we welcome many international students for both English and French daytime classes. Local residents can join in at the usual 'local' rate.
By Popular Demand:
Seasonally adjusted sessions:
12 weeks in the fall and winter, 8 weeks in the spring; 6-week sessions and special programs in the summer.

FRENCH OR ENGLISH WITH OUR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS (When we have some)
Mondays to Fridays - 9:00 to 12:00 (15 hours per week).
Ou international students come to River Echo for English or French immersion courses. Most visit during the warmer months, but we get some hardy winter students, too. These students want to discover Canada, our culural diversity and beautiful natural environment.
They usually study 3 or 4 hours in the morning and we are offering our local customers to join them at a special price. It is a wonderful opportunity for both sides: the visitors get to learn with local Canadians - not just other foreign students - and our locals get to meet and learn from people other cultures.
You are very welcome join our visitors. However, to make it worthwhile for everyone, you should be able to commit to 3 or 4 mornings a week for at least 2 weeks.
Special price: $10.00/hour
