A Welcome Message From CLLC's Chairman

Dear students, parents and partners,
It is my high privilege and the most rewarding experience to be the chairman of CLLC, and be associated with international language education - one of the greatest peacemakers in human history.

Dear students, parents and partners,

It is a great honour and privilege, and the most rewarding experience to be the Chairman of CLLC and associate myself with international language education – one of the greatest peacemakers in human history.

Understanding languages and cultures help resolve the fear and uncertainty that characterizes many human conflicts on our planet. Those who work in international language education maintain a professional optimism and insight around globalization, and therefore, to the prospects for peace and unity.

COVID-19 is an excellent example of a global challenge that united the demands of researchers, policymakers, and governments to address multiple social, cultural and financial dimensions that go far beyond the implications of the current pandemic. Surely, cultural and language awareness will continue to play an integral role in this vital global process. 

Understanding the fear and anxiety of parents who send their children abroad or hearing from mature students seeking English language professional development has helped me know that people are the most significant thing in the world.

With online programs coming to the forefront, it is not a must that one travels the world to learn a new language. However, as the world opens up again, travellers may feel their Google translator app isn’t adequate enough while travelling overseas. This is why I continue to believe that in-person language learning will continue to play an essential role in the lives of international students.

Learning responsibility, independence, cultural awareness, and new core values are often the additional benefits of travelling and studying at one of our campuses in Halifax, Ottawa, or Toronto. I feel honoured to be part of CLLC, a school that has played a positive role in the life of 20,000 students who have trusted us to impact their lives since 2004 positively. I am proud that 98% of our students successfully achieved their academic goals.

Our CORE strategy creates a sense of belonging for every student, and was established to enhance the CLLC’s slogan: “Inspiring Lives. One Student at a Time.”

At CLLC, we believe that education equals success. Success that’s measured not only in assignments and test scores, but also in students feeling valued, respected, and cared for as human beings.

Our CLLC4U Philosophy™, based on 4 CORE Values, creates the foundation for what we do and how we do it – From the very first contact, to the student’s arrival, to their graduation, we strive to provide the best academic experience possible.

This experience isn’t just about travelling overseas to learn English, but it’s an opportunity to grow culturally, emotionally and socially. It nurtures ethics and integrity in a supportive and caring environment.

CLLC’s CORE Values are a fundamental part of this process and are interwoven throughout the student’s time with us.

I wish all CLLC students the best of luck in their educational journey and look forward to building a better world together.
