Foundations Stream (Basic to Mid-Intermediate)
The Foundations English stream focuses on integrated skills. The morning classes have a strong emphasis on oral communication, vocabulary acquisition, and grammatical development which are integral skills for linguistic progress. Afternoon classes focus on grammatical structures and reading skills.
General English Stream (High-Intermediate to Low-Advanced)
The General English Stream is suitable if you wish to develop your English language skills for personal or professional reasons. Morning classes focus strongly on developing fluency in speaking and listening as well as grammar, reading, and writing. In the afternoon, students participate in a variety of seminars such as Business English, TOEFL Preparation, Conversation, Writing, and Listening and Pronunciation. Afternoon classes vary from term to term. Seminars also vary depending on the student's level of proficiency in English.
Academic English Program (High-Intermediate to Advanced)
The Academic English stream is suitable if you are interested in preparing for academic studies in English-medium institutions, either in High School, University or College.This program focuses on developing the skills that students require to be successful in an academic environment.
Students will develop all four language areas (listening / reading / writing / speaking) in order to apply them in an academic setting. Students will improve their ability to take notes, read academic material, write essays and give presentations. Students also learn vocabulary they will use in University or College courses. At the highest level of the program,students will have the opportunity to begin their University studies by taking a first year business course: " Introduction to Business I" with the support of an adjunct course specifically developed to help English Language Program students to successfully complete their University course.
With the successful completion of the highest level of the Academic English Program students have:
Met the English language proficiency requirement for The University of Winnipeg's degree credit programs in Arts and Science
Earned 6 university credit hours that can be applied to further study at The University of Winnipeg, 3 credit hours toward an undergraduate degree in the Faculty of Business Administration and 3 credit hours that are unallocated and be applied to any course of study.
The full-time English Language Program also offers additional Academic Study from 3:30 - 5:15 on Monday to Thursday for students looking to augment their 25 hours of study and cultural activities each week.These classes are optional and are available at an additional cost. Academic Study is divided into several levels, where the higher levels concentrate on Academic reading and writing and the lower levels concentrate on grammar, spelling and penmanship. Academic Study does not help students with individual assignments for other courses; rather it concentrates on building and reinforcing the aforementioned skills.
