Burlington, a city of 173 000 people, is a wonderful place to stay and study English. It is a very safe area with a high standard of living. Our language centre is within walking distance of the lake, park and promenade, the beach, a major shopping mall, restaurants and pubs, and the bus and train station. It is less than one hour to Toronto or Niagara Falls by train or car
The best course for you depends on your needs, but most of our students choose our Group English Program (20 or 25 Group Lessons per week) because it teaches all the language skills, is held in groups small enough to allow plenty of teacher-student attention, and is the most affordable. If you have a more specific language goal, we have other courses to suit your needs such as our accelerated and combo programs or our new TOEFL Preparation course.
