These programs may be offered at the beginner, intermediate or advanced level. They may be semester programs, summer programs, or immersion camps, and program length varies between 5 weeks to 15 weeks. Some programs are tailored for individuals or for groups. ESL courses and programs will differ depending on where you take them: at a university, college, public high school, private high school, or private language college. For example, some college programs allow ESL students to register for up to 2 university courses for credit during their language training. The different courses and programs also lead to different goals; some award you a certificate, while others are simply language skills upgrading. With all of these options, you should be able to find an ESL course in Canada that offers what you need.
