English Course

General English – 20 lessons (15 hours) per week. The course will help improve English language skills by focusing on the key areas: speaking, listening, reading and writing. A strong focus is placed on speech and using the language confidently and fluently.

Lessons are engaging and designed especially for young learners. Teachers aim to satisfy any interest, with a focus on communication to boost students' confidence when using English in practical situations. Regular tests and conversation classes help to ensure that students improve their English as much as possible.

Our dedicated and professional teaching staff provide feedback and support and help students build confidence to speak English.

Homestay provides students with the opportunity to use English or French in real life situations. Students get a first hand experience of the way Canadians live. Our largest concentration of English/French homestays are in LaSalle, Notre-Dame-de Grace, Rosemont and Ville St-Laurent. In Canada it's normal that homestay providers go to work during the day. Classic Homestay students are responsible for getting to school and returning to their homestay by themselves, using the travel pass provided.
