WHAT WE OFFER

Achēv is a leader in language assessment and online training.

We provide a range of innovative language services that support newcomers, language learners, assessors, instructors and community partners across Ontario and Canada.

For many immigrants, learning one of Canada’s official languages is essential to their success at work, in school and in their community.

For many, we provide that first important step: a language assessment and referral to English or French classes. If you’re planning to move to Canada or wish to practice your language skills, our online self-assessment provides valuable links and resources.

Not able to attend classes in person? Not a problem. We offer distance education programs including individual weekly lessons with an instructor, assigned work online, and progress reports and certificates.

As a language education leader, we also train assessors and teachers, facilitate language partnership meetings, and contribute to policy and planning on local, provincial and national committees.

SUCCESS STORIES

"LINC Home Study is a free English language training program, which is mostly applicable to eligible new comers to Canada. The curriculum of LINC allows you to learn about Canadian culture, the way of living etc. At least 5-7 hours of self-study per week and one 30-minute lesson per week with the instructor is essential. The basic English level for the communication in my workplace and in the community has improved day by day. A clear understanding has developed in reading and listening, the capability of speaking and writing has improved. The way of completing continuous assessments in the LINC Home Study program helps me make progress in learning English to apply effectively in my daily life. "
