”I was only at CES for five weeks, but my teacher
was able to spend a lot of individual time with
me because there were only two students. As a result,
my pronunciation has greatly improved, and I have
more confidence in my listening and conversational
skills. I think my decision to go to CES was the
best for me.”
Each student recieves a
“Thank you for your kindness to me, and I
miss you so much. Sorry, I have to go!”
Intense - Focused Learning!
Our ESL course of study is made to suit each student. You choose
what your focus will be, and we will help you reach
your goals. We won't try to fit you into a program.
Instead, together, we will design a course of study
just for you. What is your weakness - grammar?;
pronunciation? We will spend extra time with you
in these areas. Are you wanting to take the TOEFL
or TOEIC tests? We will study the various types
of questions and practice taking the tests. You
want to increase your vocabulary? We have excellent
materials that will help you learn new words quickly,
and will even focus on specific areas, such as college
preparation or business English. Do you mainly need
to improve your conversation skills? With a one-on-one
teacher, the student speaks 1/2 of the time! This
means that you will receive the optimum amount of
conversation practice, no matter what your focus
is. Please note that some areas like TOEFL and TOEIC
studies, are not appropriate for beginning English
students. Do you have an interest in computers?
Let us show you how to type and format a resumé,
search the Internet, make a web page!
Classes are from 9:00am to 3:00pm Monday through
Friday, with the exception of Canadian holidays.
Because CES is in our home, the scheduling is relaxed,
but the learning time is very intense. We have an
"English only" policy. This may be difficult
for the beginning level students, but it will help
to maximize the learning process. Weekly activities
like ice skating, hiking, and crafts are also included
in our schedule.
At CES, the opportunities to learn continue after classes!
There are many things that you can do after school.
During this time, your teacher will continue to
correct your pronunciation & grammar as you
share in the day-to-day activities of a Canadian
family. After class you may want to rest, go shopping,
or use the computer to study English. Supper is
a good time to practice your conversation as you
help with meal preparation and clean up. After supper
you might want to do a little homework, walk in
the nearby nature park, or spend time with your
teacher. Later, you may want to watch a movie on
our close caption TV, or catch up on news from home
via the Internet.
Below are some of the areas of study available
to you. Just let your teacher know what you want
to focus on.
