What’s your method for teaching English to young children?

Learning through Play! At Canadian Island we combine “The whole child”, that promotes conversation through jazz, and the “Aim Method”, that involves all five senses. This combination makes learning English fun and stimulating!

Are your teachers Native English Speakers?

All of our teachers are experienced and Native English Speakers that are passionate, not only to teach, but to create an inviting and stimulating environment. To stay on top and offer the best, our teachers participate in regular workshops to stay up to date and gain a deeper understanding.

What courses do you offer for children and teens?

For children and teens we are able to offer:
• Small groups for in person lessons at our school (3-6 years old and 6-13 years old) during the week from October to May
• Full Immersion courses every Saturday morning (3-6 years old and 6-13 years old) from October to May

Do you offer courses that are focused on preparing for Cambridge Exams?

• ESOL Cambridge (B1 B2  C1  C2)

We also help our students for these exams:
• Key English Test (KET)

What kind of method is used for teaching adults?

Our method to teach adults is based on a simple concept, of immediately using “speaking and listening” which are the most important building blocks and efficient way to learn any language.
We base our lessons on real life situations and making sure the lessons are “student focused” in order to incentivize them to speak, practice conversation and build their confidence in speaking. Our courses are customized to help you reach your goal (whichever they may be), adapted to your needs, including what time and days are most convenient for you! If you can’t make it to a lesson… no problem, you can make it up when you want!

Why choose private lessons?

Our private lessons (in high demand) are customized to suit your needs. They are structured based on your final goal, such as:
• Business English- to better your English for work and business.
• Learn or improve your English for a trip
• Widen your knowledge of the language and discover Canadian culture.
