 01  How is Acquire English different from other ESL schools?

Acquire English is a specialized language program.  We meet and explore different parts of Toronto every day together.  Our lessons are focused on introducing you to Toronto history and culture, understanding life in Canada, and how to use language in various real situations.  Our classes are small, and what you will study will depend on the teacher's assessment of your abilities.  

Every student's experience is personalized and unique, something few schools in Toronto can provide.
