English Classes

ISANS offers many different English classes for immigrants in Nova Scotia. We offer language skills classes for everyday living in the community and for immigrants who are looking for work, currently working, planning to start a business or currently running their own business. Classes are in-person, online or in the workplace.

Canadian Language Benchmarks

ISANS uses the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) to assess your language level. Canadian Language Benchmarks are a national standard and are based on reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. They are used across Canada to place adult learners in English classes. Learn more about CLB and your English level.

Childcare

Our classes are free of charge for eligible clients. On-site childcare in our Early Childhood Education Centre is available for some of the language training programs.
