Our School of English as a Second Language offers innovative ESL instruction in the heart of downtown Toronto.

Our English for Academic Purposes program is available in the morning or afternoon while our part-time programs are offered in the evenings or on the weekends allowing you the flexibility to find a course that fits your schedule.

We also offer specialised training to internationally educated teachers through our College Teacher Training Program.
