TORONTO, July 2 /CNW/ - Toronto Public Library still has space in free English language classes for newcomer children this summer. English Can Be Fun, a free, enjoyable and educational English language program, encourages newcomer children to have fun while they learn more about the culture and history of Canada through lessons, games and activities.
