LINK focuses on language tuition. It does not arrange accommodation or employment placings for students. However, our teaching staff are happy to advise about where students may be able to access such services elsewhere in the community.

No. Students must make their own arrangements for outside care of their pre-school children.
Can I still belong to other ESOL classes if I attend LINK?
Yes. In fact, LINK recommends that you attend other ESOL classes if it is affordable or convenient for you. The more practice you receive at English language, the quicker you will learn.
