Our Intensive English courses are interactive, with periodic excursions and the use of computer labs and online learning programs.

International students enrolling in programs at the Language Training Centre are required to have an English language assessment to ensure placement in the appropriate program and level. Students entering into the Intensive English for International Students (IEIS) program are tested on-site at the Language Training Centre and placed in one of the program’s many comprehensive levels.

The programs at the Language Training Centre are designed to help learners develop English communication skills through a variety of classroom and cultural activities. Educational, cultural and social activities will help program participants to practice and integrate their language learning in real world situations with Canadians in the community.
