English as Another Language (EAL) Classes

The southeast region of Saskatchewan has experienced a significant increase in immigrant residents over the last few years, creating a need for English language training. In response to that need, Southeast Regional College offers English as Another Language (EAL) training and resources for permanent and temporary residents. EAL programming is available in Estevan, Weyburn, Oxbow, Kipling and Redvers.  All new students are assessed on speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills to determine whether they would benefit from Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced classes.To register for classes, please call Southeast Regional College EAL Coordinator, Katie Burham at 306-637-4928 or kburham@southeastcollege.org
