Course descriptions

Pre-immigration 25

Core 15

These courses aim to give students the opportunity to learn and practice conversation and communication techniques in front of a teacher. Mornings consist of three 45-50 minute periods, each offering a different approach to communication: fluency, accuracy and application.

Fluency: students focus on pronunciation and rate of speech
Accuracy: students learn structures and improve accuracy
Application: students interact and develop communicative ability

Afternoon courses

Workshop 3: A cultural advisor customizes seminars and workshops focusing on practical matters to immigrating to Canada and cultural knowledge in integrating smoothly into Canadian society.

Thrive 7

Club Activity

Activate the language you are studying through visiting cool, local cafes, pubs and shops. Everyone can get together, unwind and have a good time. The relaxed atmosphere is the right way to loosen the tongue and start the week.

Volunteer Club

Using the target language, students develop organizational skills and leadership ability through getting to know – and potentially working with – different local non-profit organizations (NPOs) and charities.


Everyone is welcome to practice speaking in a safe space, guided by an expert facilitator. Meet our volunteers, local people and other learners.

Cultural Activity

Students explore various interesting spaces, events and cultural gems of Montreal. See the scene from an insider’s point of view.
