What to Expect

Courses begin in January, May, and September. For some courses, you may start any time in the first two weeks of the term.  Instruction is offered at both Lansdowne and Interurban campuses. The schedule is flexible to fit your busy life: full-time, part-time, at your own pace; day or evening; all year round. You can spend up to 20 hours of class per week supported by another 1–5 hours a week in our state-of-the-art, multi-media language labs.

Level 1

ELD level 1 courses are for beginning and pre-intermediate students who have a fundamental and developing knowledge of English.  Emphasis is on development of speaking and listening skills with an introduction to reading comprehension and written composition.

Level 2

ELD level 2 courses focus on the development of advanced academic English language skills needed to gain entry into college-level programs or technical and professional English language skills needed in the Canadian workplace.
