English Language Programs in Calgary, Canada

Calgary Language Courses Every year, students from over 60 countries enroll into our various programs. Our curriculum is comprised of 17 different weekly themes that are repeated about three times per calendar year. Within each theme, teachers are free to explore a variety of sub-themes. The way our curriculum is designed allows teachers to incorporate a wide range of authentic material into the classroom. As a result, students acquire real language that they can use outside of the classroom. Many of the after-school activities organized by our Activities Department are planned around the weekly themes, so learning also extends outside of the classroom.

Grammar points are clearly outlined each week with some weeks being assigned to reviewing language that students struggled with. The reading, writing, listening and speaking language skills are separated into 50 minute blocks. Within each block, teachers address the sub-skills that a particular group of students need to work on. This allows students to strengthen skill areas where they need improvement, not to work on something simply because it says it in 'the book.'
