CLLC’s General English (GE) program consists of six levels, ranging from Introductory to Advanced (Levels 1 to 6). The GE program develops key competencies in at least five core English language learning areas: Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking, and Critical Thinking, with an emphasis on academic writing. CLLCs rigorous curriculum is founded on a number of external EAL criteria such as the Canadian Language Benchmarks, TOEFL, and IELTS. All GE schedules include a Plus One class. The Plus One class allows students to choose a variety of topics that cover multiple interests or academic skills. CLLC’s Semi Intensive Program gives students flexibility to study 15 hours per week (20 lessons/ week) of quality English language instruction. This program is ideal for those students who are not bound for college or university and are still looking for an amazing language experience in Canada.


Students can choose from Reading & Writing or Listening & Speaking or IELTS as their primary class, along with the Plus One class. Provided students meet academic performance requirements, they will complete the Semi-Intensive level in 10 weeks.


Students will complete a placement assessment (interview and written test) on their first
day to determine their English level. All English levels are welcome to join our Semi-Intensive Program.
