StudentsThis full-time, competency-based program is for students who want to develop English language proficiency for further studies/training, employment, settlement, or daily life.

The unique blended delivery approach is a good solution for students who are not able to be in a full-time classroom. In this short term program, a few learning methods are used, adding up to 25 hours/week for a total of 16 weeks.

In addition to face-to-face instruction in the classroom and computer labs, students will also learn independently through online instruction/activities. Students in this program should be self-motivated, comfortable using technology, and open to new ways of learning.
