ESL - Junior & Adult

For many years leaders of ESL groups have visited the Kortright Centre to introduce their students to the sights, sounds and vocabulary associated with nature. Our programs provide newcomers with a chance to explore a natural setting just beyond their urban neighbourhoods, or to experience a truly Canadian activity, such as maple syrup making.

  • Upon arrival a guide will meet your group in the Visitor's Centre.
  • The session will begin with a brief indoor introduction to the topic you have chosen, followed by an enjoyable and educational walk outside, along one of our scenic trails.
  • Our guides have led many adult and junior ESL groups and will ensure new terms and phrases are presented in a clear, concise manner.
