Every Education needs a foundation...

The Foundation Course

Features of the Foundation Course include:

  • Discover Toronto's unique neighbourhoods, including your own!  

  • Participate in local and seasonal events!  There is something different happening every month in Toronto!

  • Speak with Canadians from all walks of life in all types of situations!

  • Learn about Canadian culture and history first hand by visiting historical sites.

  • Find out about what volunteering opportunities are available and get some experience with us!

  • Visit 5 of Toronto's top attractions with your teacher and learn how to speak about your experience!  Our course includes:

    • CN Tower

    • Ripley's Aquarium

    • Casa Loma

    • The Royal Ontario Museum

    • Toronto Zoo  (or Ontario Science Centre!)

  • All with guidance from our expert ESL teachers!

The Foundation Course has been designed specifically for international students coming to Toronto to live and study English.

 

This is a one of a kind program, and we hope to be able to provide a unique, transformative, and fun experience for all of our students.  Each lesson is designed not only to improve your English, but also to help you gain confidence living and speaking with others in your new home, Toronto!

We also teach you techniques and methods so that you can remember what you learn better.

Acquire English students will all receive instruction on effective study techniques and assistance with the creation of a study plan to help students solve their bad language habits... forever.

After one month in our Foundation Course you'll have all the tools and knowledge you need to live your English life!

THE LIT Course

Learn English by helping others

The Leader in Training (LIT) Course is offered to all graduates of the Foundation Course.

 

Want to know if you really understand something?  Try teaching it to someone!  

Learning by teaching is a method that has amazing results.  Students can gain confidence, remember what they have learned better, and gain new thinking and communication skills.

LIT students will assist the teacher in the lesson, partnering with students new to Toronto, and acting like a big brother or big sister.  This means some added responsibility, and the chance to create some really memorable experiences!  

 

Acquire English teachers are always thinking of new interesting ways to involve our LIT students in active roles.  Be it organizing an event, explaining a grammar point, or being the first to answer a question, LIT students will always have something new to teach, learn, or experience.

THE guided studies Course

the guidance you need to proceed

The Guided Studies course is offered to all graduates of the Foundation Course.

 

At Acquire English our goal is your independence.  We want all of our students to be learners for life, and to have the skills to make progress on their own.  There will be times, however, when expert instruction or guidance is needed.  This is why we have created the Guided Studies course.

We create a study plan based on each student's needs, and provide guidance in all areas including:

  • Speaking and Conversation

  • Grammar

  • Pronunciation

  • Reading and Writing

  • Test Preparation  (IELTS, TOEFL)

  • Resume and Essay writing

  • Effective study techniques

  • Physical and Mental health (important for students!)

  • Assistance with life in Toronto

 

We want all of our graduates to continue to have a positive experience while living in Toronto, and to keep learning and improving their language skills even once they have returned home.  

Our Guided Studies course offers the support our students need to grow and be happy, and that makes us happy too!
