Short-Term Programs

Global Classroom Program (School Immersion Experience for Student Groups)

The Global Classroom (a school immersion experience for short term students) promotes the integration of international students into Canadian schools and encourages their participation in the daily life of a school, community and family. This educational experience includes an orientation to the school system, regular attendance in Canadian classes of various content areas and other relevant activities. All aspects of this program aim to promote language development in the elementary or secondary school student through an immersion experience. Organized weekend activities are optional. Programs are available in the fall, winter and spring. This is a popular program for school groups accompanied by chaperone teachers. 

Summer English Explorer Program

The Summer English Explorer Program first started in 2001 and has been a very popular program for individual students or for student/school groups since its beginning. This program offers communicative English classes in the mornings followed by task-based activities within the Ottawa region in the afternoons. Students are involved with various tasks to increase their confidence and use of English including participating in our summer blog. They are encouraged to interact with international and Canadian students and homestay families.

Winter English Explorer Program

Canada’s snowy winter is a thrilling backdrop for an engaging English immersion experience. Student groups accompanied by a chaperone/teacher participate in a program that incorporates fun-filled winter activities (such as skating on the world's longest outdoor skating rink) and other cultural activities with daily communicative English lessons and a Canadian homestay program.
