Program Focus and Flexibility – Focussed Courses and Workshops: While our morning periods (1 to 4) focus on developing core common skills our afternoon periods (5 to 7) allow students to tailor their program to meet their own specific needs through Focussed Courses or Workshops. Both are critical components of our student centred approach to learning, emphasizing individual needs and the role of the student in the learning process.

Elective Workshops: An essential and very popular component of our programs, Workshops enhance the learning experience by allowing students the flexibility to focus on particular language skills and interesting topics. Workshops are offered at various levels (more options for higher levels) and on different topics. Students may select different ones each week. See page 9 for a listing of sample workshops.

Focussed Courses: provide intensive, concentrated studies for higher level students looking to learn English for business, hospitality, specific fields (such as aviation or medicine), exams (TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS) or higher education. They are offered in periods 5 to 7, Monday through Thursday. Focussed Courses require pre-registration. See page 9 for a list of Focussed Courses.

The Focus on Communication (FOC) program develops confidence in speaking, increase word power and improve pronunciation. This course is designed to help you communicate effectively and with ease in a wide range of situations from social settings to debates and presentations.

FOC combines the morning oral communication periods (Periods 2, 3 and 4 – see Course Structure tab) with select afternoon workshops designed especially for FOC students, such as Power Speaking and Debating. You can change your workshop topic weekly allowing you to better customize your studies to your individual needs.

In addition to class work, this course includes one free Chat Buddy session (3 to 5 hours per week) per month. Your Canadian Chat Buddy will help you to practice your conversational skills outside of the classroom and become familiar with Canadian life through a variety of social activities.
