Group English Courses (20 / 24 / 28 hours per week):
Our group English courses are available to students of all levels of English - beginner, intermediate & advanced. At the beginning of your course, your language level will be assessed and you will be placed in the appropriate group for your requirements. Our language courses focus on building communication skills, with comprehension skills playing a large part of the communication process. English courses in Edmonton start every Monday and the minimum duration of the group courses is four weeks.
Students who would like more intensive language study or who have a limited amount of time can choose to take 24 or 28 classes per week. The more intensive English courses also focus on the four main language areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking. Courses usually run in the morning until early afternoon, with a break for lunch.
We put a lot of effort into structuring our English courses, using techniques that are highly effective. In addition, our professional teachers put a lot of effort into implementing them in a personal and fun way. We use a wide variety of both traditional, time-tested teaching techniques along with the latest in methodologies to provide you with dynamic and very effective language instruction.
You won’t just sit there and listen to a teacher. Using exercises such as language games, role-plays, discussions, pair and group activities and interviews, you will be given tasks that get you speaking, writing, reading and listening to English.
