SSLC’s ESL program is designed to prepare students for academic success in a North American learning environment.

Class activities are structured to enable students to meet the challenges associated with learning in a typical Canadian classroom and help students discover how to take an active role in their education.

Utilizing SSLC’s customized curriculum and new PACE and ACE series, students develop their English so that the ability to speak, think and express themselves in the classroom all become an integral part of their communication skills.

For the parents who wish to bring their children with them to study English as a family, SSLC will arrange for the children to be enrolled in the children’s English program at our sister school, Vancouver International College. The campus is only stepping away from our SSLC Vancouver Campus, and both parents and their children can come to school and leave after school together.
