The intensive courses in Montreal, consist of 20, 24 or 30 lessons per week. Classes have a maximum of 15 students. Minimum course duration is 1 week.

We offer the intensive course at 8 different levels. The entrance test determines your level of English and the class you will be in. The lessons focus on listening, reading, writing and most importantly speaking. During the classes in the afternoon of the 30 hours course, extra attention is paid to a specific subject as vocabulary,  fluency, conjugating verbs or DELF-preparation.

As well as offering courses in English, the school also offers French courses and it is possible to combine these 2 languages during the intensive course.
