Students who have completed English 12/90 in Canada also meet the English requirements for academic programs. Students with no TOEFL or TOEFL less than 550 will receive a conditional letter of acceptance. Students who are conditionally accepted must take our English Language Assessment when they first arrive. The results of this test will determine if a student must first complete English Language Training or if the student can proceed directly to a full academic load. Students who need English Language Training are allowed to take one to three academic courses per semester, with their English, depending on their language level.

English Language Training

The ESL program schedule consists of about 15 to 20 hours per week of classes offered in the mornings and afternoons, five days per week from Monday to Friday. Schedules vary depending on the courses chosen. Courses include core courses in grammar, writing, reading, listening and speaking as well as various electives in communication, such as conversation, speeches, pronunciation, vocabulary, Canadian studies, current events discussions and TOEFL/TOEIC preparation. Classes are relaxed and teachers encourage student interaction in all classes. There are four levels of core courses during the Fall and Winter semesters. During the Fall and Winter semesters, students in the top three levels of the English Language Training program may take one to three academic courses with Canadian students for audit or credit (number of courses allowed depends on level). During the Spring semester, both academic English and Communication classes are offered. Students who complete the ESL program may take high school level English courses offered at the College.
