Calgary Board of Education

English Language Learning

Welcome to Calgary


If you are new to Calgary and speak a language other than English at home, there is a language test. Please call 403-777-7373 (ext. 0) to make an appointment for your test at Kingsland Centre (7430 5 St. S.W.). The assessment of listening, speaking, reading and writing helps your new school decide if your child would benefit from English language instruction and support.
