English as a Second Language

Limestone International

Bayridge Secondary School and Loyalist Collegiate offer five levels of English as a second language (ESL) instruction, levels A-E. Students must demonstrate proficiency at level E before they can proceed to the mainstream English program.


After students arrive in Canada they will complete a STEPS language assessment to see which level of ESL class they will be placed into.  


Specialized ESL teachers administer and mark the assessments to accurately place students in the most helpful way.

The August English Preparation Program is designed to prepare international students into their new surroundings so that, in September, they can start school with confidence.  This program is offered exclusively to our students attending Limestone area schools in September 2023.

The program introduces students to the colloquial English expressions they will not likely have heard in their home country, and the academic English they will encounter in their new Canadian classrooms. Students will learn about the culture and expectations of Canadian schools, and discuss them in relation to those in their home country. The program instructor will work with students to develop strategies on how to be successful in their new Limestone school.

In addition, many of the program activities will take place outside of the classroom. They are designed to familiarize students with various services and venues around Kingston.  This will include riding and understanding the public transit system, how to order food, what to do with phone plans, banking and Canadian courtesy.  There are many local experiences included in this program! They have about half of the day in school (air-conditioned!) and half the day or evenings exploring Kingston, going to beaches, movies in the Square, Fort Henry and more!
