English as a Second Language Programs

General English and English for Business classes are integrated skills classes. English will be used by students on a daily basis providing a foundation for development of language skills. Our levels are mapped to CLB (Canadian Language Benchmarks) and CEFR. It is used as an outline of what a student should be able “to do” at the end of each level.


The communicative approach is used to help students to improve “correctness” of the language, or accuracy, along with fluency, or how well a student communicates in the language.

What is taught

Reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar, vocabulary and critical thinking are the skills introduced and taught on a daily basis.

At the end of every four-week period, a test/quiz assessment is given to make sure the goals are being achieved and measured. Each student gets a constructive feedback from their instructors every four weeks. This feedback is personalized and discusses strengths and weaknesses observed during a teaching period along with suggestions on what and how to improve. The feedback is discussed during a short meeting between a student and a teacher.

It is advised that all international students get medical insurance coverage as the pay per plan to visit the Doctor/Dentist and receiving medications or extra care is very costly.

Here is a list of companies that can assist you with ensuring you have medical insurance during your studies:
Sunlife Financial
Great West Life 
Ontario Blue Cross
GMS Health Insurance
Scotia Life Health and Dental Insurance
State Farm
