Carleton University

Our courses may not be as cheap as some private language schools but this is because of the quality of the programs we offer, the quality of our teaching staff, our industry-leading blended learning and the incredible partners we work with.

Good choice for you.

If you want English skills, you gain a good chance at CultureWorks, but you should study hard work with each level because it is not easy to go up the high level.

A great experience

July 2017. The most beautiful month of my life. I have been in Ottawa and London with CultureWorks just a month, but I have learned a lot.
I think this school is one of the best you can find in Canada. In addition to help you to improve your English skills, it organizes amazing activities.
I would like to come back.
