LINC Home Study

LINC Home Study (LHS) is a language training program available to ESL learners who cannot attend a face-to-face class in Manitoba. To register, learners must:

  • be registered with English Online for the Live & Learn program
  • submit a Referral to LINC HS from a referral centre, issued within the last 12 months
  • sign a consent form
  • have minimum CLB 3/3/2/2/
  • be able to meet with an instructor once per week on Skype
  • be able to study on your own for min 5 hrs per week
  • maintain a portfolio of language samples for assessment purposes

Once registered, learners are matched with an e-Facilitator, who will monitor and assess their progress. Learners are expected to use both the LHS and EO platforms to practise your language skills, and receive a CLB certificate.
