Our teachers

ELC teachers are TESOL-trained university graduates with experience teaching in other countries as well as in Canada. The patience and creativity they bring to each English class will help you feel supported, inspired and ready to learn!

Our classes

Our approach to teaching English includes two special features:

  • an "integrated skills curriculum" which builds skills in all language areas
  • "team teaching": an approach in which two teachers work as partners, doubling the expertise and support you’ll receive in the classroom I

In your daily ELC English classes, you can expect to:

  • Explore new ideas in group discussions
  • Gain confidence using English in a variety of situations
  • Receive 1:1 support from your teachers
  • Work with classmates on projects and activities
  • Have FUN!

The first day of most ELC programs includes a placement test. There is both a reading and listening section to the test and, based on the results, we’ll place you in a class that’s at the right level for you.
