Our English courses in Vancouver
Choose from a range of general and specialized English courses in Vancouver. General English courses begin every Monday all year round and can last for as little as 2 weeks or as long as you like. All our English courses in Vancouver use blended instruction, so you spend a portion of your English classes using online learning tools to reinforce and develop what you've seen with your teacher.
For students with more specific English learning objectives, we offer a range of specialized English courses in Vancouver as well. TOEFL and Cambridge exam preparation courses will improve your scores on those tests. Semester and year-long English courses lead to greater fluency and full cultural immersion. Our university pathway program guarantees admission to one of our partner universities in Canada.
