Intensive English-Language and Culture

If you are looking for a proper way to polish up your English, McGill must be your choice. They offer intensive courses which help people to improve both the language skills and the understanding of its culture. The instructors are highly qualified and experienced than any other institutions. The program covers not only grammar, listening, speaking, reading, and writing but also presenting, critical thinking, persuasion, debating, and so on. You can also take advantages having conversation partners who are McGill students or sophisticated senior citizens, and it will be a priceless chance to improve your speaking. I would say that this course is greatly helpful for anyone who is expected to use English for studying, working, and everyday life. However, it's not just about studying all the time. During the course, you have diverse opportunities to hang out with people and speak English because there are lots of activities like bowling, skating, Halloween party on every Friday. I really enjoyed studying in McGill, and my English has really improved thanks to McGill.

Intensive English - Language and Culture

If you intend to learn English, McGill is your spot. The program is perfectly designed, combining a strong formal learning in grammar, writing, listening and speaking with cultural activities that drive you towards an in-depth contact with the Canadian and with the English Speaking world. Going to the Sugar Shack, playing Curling, watching theater plays, discussing movies and books or cooking together were a few of the activities I had the pleasure to participate. Teachers know a lot about their fields and are passionate to support each student to improve and reach their goals. I must not forget to say that having access to all the University installations (such as the libraries) was a privilege really helpful during your studies! I strongly recommend this course.

Intensive English Language and Culture program

It was an enjoyable experience to study English at McGill. I highly appreciated the course content which helped me to improve all aspects: grammar, writing, pronunciation, speaking (open discussions, presentations etc). IELC program teachers and coordinators work really hard to provide an excellent learning environment by finding an individual approach to each student, organizing interesting in-class projects and outdoor activities. I think it's a great place where learning English is effective and motivating.
