Specialization Courses (Friday Mornings)

In the Premium Program, you can customize your studies by choosing courses that will help you meet your goals. These specialization classes take place on Fridays from 9 am to 12 pm. Choose one specialization course per term.

Business Communications

This course will help you develop the social and communication skills you'll need in a Canadian business environment. Specific activities will vary depending on your background and interests, but they will improve your spoken and written communication skills as well as key business-related social skills.

Cultural Studies Through Film Analysis

In this course, which is for advanced students, you will observe and discuss film critically, self-reflectively, and interactively in small and large groups. Expect to develop the language skills and vocabulary you'll need to talk about film and express your opinions and personal experiences in writing and in speech.

Grammar Intensive

This course will help you build a foundation in grammar and writing skills, expand your vocabulary, and increase your confidence. It is designed for students who need or want to pass a standardized language proficiency test (such as IELTS), but are not ready to write the test. Although we wll spend some class time on IETLS preparation, we will focus on written and spoken grammar as well as vocabulary.

IELTS Preparation

In this course, you will develop test-taking strategies for the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) exam. We will focus on specific modules of the test (speaking, reading, listening, and writing), but we'll also develop other skills.

Please note: Specialization courses vary from term to term.
