     Hello! My name is Hina and in my class, we will be talking about different topics based on students' preference. We will read passages, watch videos, work on related vocabulary and sentence structures. For each topic, we will cover reading writing, listening, and speaking. However, we will focus more on having discussions and speaking skills.     


Tiffany Myers             |       High Intermediate                    |        CLB 4 - 6            


Hi, my name is Tiffany, I am very happy to be teaching at Limestone. The Workplace English class aims to prepare students for possible pathways of employment, secondary or post secondary education. We focus on Canadian workplace culture, health care system, legal topics, housing, government, and other topics as requested by students.  Students practice how to express themselves through speaking and develop reading and writing skills that will help them become more independent with their learning. There are plenty of opportunities to practice speaking with partners and group work. This class also regularly invites guest speakers from the community to familiarize students with key resources, and services. I look forward to meeting you.
