Part-time Program (10 lessons/week)
Our part-time program is perfect for students who want to learn English/French (in Montreal) in their free time. Students choose to join a regularly scheduled class in either the morning or afternoon and will have the duration of the day to explore the city, work, study or relax.
***Note: Students choose to study one of the following courses: Integrated Skills, Active Listening or an Elective.
Integrated Skills focuses on the four main English skills - reading, writing, speaking and listening - through a “Communicative Language Teaching” methodology. New grammar patterns are learned in the context of a conversation or a real-life situation. Students will engage in various activities to practice English including listening tasks, role playing, and stimulating discussions. Practical reading and writing tasks and vocabulary studies are presented as well in our 6 available levels.
In Active Listening, students will cover a variety of topics while practicing English conversation management, conversational styles, and pronunciation. Students learn commonly-used idioms and slang in a communicative way. Teachers also use various activities to introduce students to these new idioms including listening tasks, role playing, and context-relevant discussions. There are 6 different levels available for students.
Students of the Super-Intensive English Program are able to choose an elective course that interests them and/or benefits their English goals. We offer a variety of courses including TOEFL iBT Test Preparation, TOEIC Test Preparation, IELTS Test Preparation, Academic Writing, Business English/French, Pronunciation, and others.

Part-time Program Features
All of our courses follow a comprehensive curriculum with a primary focus on oral communication - speaking and listening. Well trained and highly qualified instructors help students improve their conversation skills through a variety of classroom activities. There are six different levels of study, from beginner (level 1) to advanced (level 6). A placement test helps us find the best class level for each student. At the end of each four-week session, each student will receive a written evaluation and have a one-on-one with one of their teachers in order to establish an understanding of their progress. Students will finally receive a Language Proficiency Certificate at the end of their studies.
