English as a Second Language

Learn the English skills you need to work, study, and participate in everyday life in Canada.
At VCC, we prefer and use the term "English as an Additional Language" or "EAL" as it acknowledges a wider diversity of backgrounds, however we continue to use "ESL" on our website to support online searches.
