*Is it necessary for me to take a placement test if I am not a beginner?
Yes! The placement test aids the evluator / instructor in determining your level, as well as your objective. Following a thorough written and oral evaluation, your instructor will be able to build an effective course plan for the duration of your program, thus allowing for a much more conducive learning experience.
*Do you offer group courses?
*Do you offer private courses, as in one-to-one instruction?
Yes, we offer private as well as semi-private courses (two students and one instructor). These courses are ideal for students who have a clear objective in mind and need a flexible schedule in order to accommodate their varying availability. For example, if you are a marketing representative you may prefer to focus on perfecting your sales pitch to clients rather than simply practicing casual conversation. Also, your courses will most likely be scheduled around your meetings and / or office hours. Private and semi-private courses are always tailor-made to the your specific needs and areas of interest; the schedule is very flexible because it is based on your availability.
*Do you offer on-site company courses?
Yes, we are pleased that throughout our 31 years in business, we have taught an extensive list of companies from the West Island and its surrounding areas. In addition to offering these courses at our West Island facilities, our instructors can also offer on-site courses at your company in a private or group setting. We understand how valuable your time is and will work around your schedule to accommodate you.
