How it works

This is a three-week online paced program and you are expected to daily attend each virtual class. Once you’re enrolled, you will be emailed full details and further instructions of your online classroom experience.

English Studies: Student-centered, communicative lessons designed to enhance each of the core skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing) while providing students with insights into life in Canada.

Canadian Culture: Content-based instruction is provided as you virtually explore geography, regional foods, popular music, and more.

Intercultural Communication Skills: Having a solid understanding of the basics of intercultural communication theory will serve you well as you pursue your academic and professional goals. Engaging in online activities will make learning fun.

Electives: Options include Global Citizenship, Healthy Choices, Leadership Skills, and STEM skills. Note that the list may vary depending on enrollment.

One-to-One Seminars: An added bonus of our online format is One-to-One Seminars where you can have two 15-minute sessions with an instructor. Individualized instruction, pronunciation tutorials, Q&A sessions, and conversation topics are some of the possibilities.

Virtual Activities: These are sure to be a program highlight and may include: exercise classes, seasonal cooking demonstrations, trivia contests, virtual scavenger hunts and puzzles, international student panels, virtual visits to the wildlife park and more!
