Program description - May 2024

This intensive program focuses on your academic English language skills that will prepare you for success in college/university, or your career. Prospective students will be placed in one of the 5 levels based on the results of our Conestoga English Proficiency Placement (CEPP) test and will be taught by experienced, highly qualified, TESL certified, friendly and professional professors. Our program will offer you skill-based courses that are dedicated to focusing on your reading, writing, listening, pronunciation and speaking skills. Along with these core language courses, you will also take credit-based courses that focus specifically on student success and knowledge about Canadian society.

You will have the choice to take hybrid on-campus or fully online delivery modes each semester, which is 15 weeks long, including one ‘Student Success Week’. Additionally, this program includes specialized instruction for developing pronunciation skills and includes a foundation level for English learners who need basic language instruction.

Please note: The following categories of domestic applicants can enroll in the General Arts and Science: English Language Studies program (Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and refugees or convention refugees). Classes run based on minimum enrolment requirements. International students should refer to the English for Academic Studies program.
