The objective of the program is to create an immersion-like atmosphere so that you are exposed to English at all times. You will be encouraged by teachers and monitors to speak English in the classroom, residence, and during all activities.
The program is for all levels – beginner to advanced. On the first day, you will be given a placement test that will determine your level. You will then be placed in a class with students who are similar in level to yours and taught by instructors who are not only sensitive to your language needs but also qualified, experienced and current in second language methodology. The program runs for five weeks; however, you may join two, three, four or five weeks.
