LINC Classes (Language Instructor for Newcomers)

Cumberland College provides free English classes for immigrants age 18 years and older. Classes are provided for people assessed at English Levels 1-8 according to the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) levels. Eligible learners will participate in a blended learning model that includes both face-to-face and online classes.
