Learn English at home for free!

Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) is an English language training program funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). LINC Home Study provides free distance education for eligible newcomers to Canada who cannot attend classes in person in Ontario.

To be successful in the program, you need at least 5 hours to study independently each week. You can choose to study either online (computer with internet access) or by correspondence (books and CDs). TESL-certified instructors are available for weekly one-on-one classes by telephone or VoIP. Your instructor will tailor your learning plan based on your needs, provide you with ongoing support and give you regular feedback on your learning progress.

To be referred to the LINC Home Study program, you must first book an appointment at a Language Assessment Centre to test your English language skills and confirm your eligibility. After your referral, LINC Home Study will gather more information to complete your registration. You will be placed on a waitlist until space becomes available. When it is time for you to start the program, your instructor will contact you by phone or email.
