Information on the language training

All our courses are designed on individual needs. Classes are based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB). The CLBs are the standards used in Canada in language learning and teaching. The Benchmarks describe what a person who is learning English can do at in different situations at home, at school and at work.  Our courses follow the Portfolio Based Language Assessment system.   Students choose the tasks they want to learn.
