Arden Language Centre’s Goal is to equip Newcomers to Canada with the language tools necessary to reach their employment, social and educational goals.

Arden Language Centre is a Christian response to a need in the community as we are the only full-time ESL (English as a Second Language) program in the Grey-Bruce area. Using the Cambridge Ventures program, teachers focus on all four areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Arden Language Centre began with two students in September 2015. It has now grown to more than 30 full-time students from over 10 countries. The Centre has 3 full-time staff as well as amazing volunteers from throughout the Grey- Bruce area.

When we began, we thought this ESL program would run for a year – to help with the influx of refugees coming to the area- and then would close down. But God had another idea. Now, going into our fourth year, the program is only getting bigger and better and we are excited to be part of it. The English definition of the word arden is: eager. This is a word that describes the atmosphere at Arden Language Centre. This is a place where the volunteers are eager to teach and the students are eager to learn. Come join us!


Monday – Thursday on-line classes run 9:30-11:00 & 11:00 – 12:30 Friday classes are in-person – we will be doing different experiences throughout the GreyBruce region!

The CELTA certified staff member assesses all new students before they are placed in the appropriate level, from pre-literate to advanced.
