ESL Computers:
Classes for ESL Learners

Adult ESL and Computer Classes in Ottawa

Training in ESL Computers can open doors to job opportunities both in the public and private sectors.

The computer class schedule has changed because of the pandemic. Please call the school at 613-594-5773 for the latest information about computer classes.

You can take classes either in the morning (9:00 am to 12:00 pm)or in the afternoon (12:30 pm to 3:30 pm).

We have classes for all levels from beginners learning keyboarding and Windows to advanced courses in MS Word, Excel, MS Access and other MS Office applications.

We also have classes in Web Design and Dreamweaver, powerful graphics programs like Photoshop and Fireworks and more.

Many students start with very little or zero-knowledge about computers. Our experienced instructors break down the learning process into a step-by-step journey towards excellence.

For those coming in with some experience, we correct bad habits and refocus on learning with a view towards long-term goals.

Some of our students have started businesses of their own in web design and computer graphics. Others end up working in office environments using the skills they have learned. Some study further to become computer professionals. And yet others use the skills in business and daily life.

We are often asked if we offer online web design classes. Because of the way we are structured we are currently unable to do so. However, there is plenty of good information online to help you get started if you are unable to attend our classes. One of the resources you can use it W3 Schools.
