Adult Language and Learning
Adult Language and Learning has been serving the Chatham-Kent community since 1984, and the immigrants of the area since 1987.
Adult Language and Learning is funded by the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities and the Government of Canada through the Department of Citizenship and Immigration.
We are a not-for-profit registered charity organization.
Why Choose Adult Language and Learning?
Through Adult Language and Learning, adults in Chatham-Kent can reach their personal learning and settlement goals in a supportive environment. Each client is interviewed. The client, with our support, sets individual goals, and is either referred to an appropriate agency or is placed into one of our programs.
