Here are the top 5 things you need to know about our ELDP course:

Students from grades 10-12 can join this program. This course is designed to help students learn and fine-tune their English language skills. You can take this course while you are studying at our high school to complete your BC graduation. You do not require entry-level or any other level of English proficiency to be admitted to high school. Just enrol and begin!

 The program consists of four levels which focus on language learning in the context of:  

Academic subjects:

The program is designed to complement the academic study of the students, i.e. the BC high school graduation program. It further helps to enhance their participation skills in classes and all other activities.

ELDP provides English language instruction and cultural immersion for non-native speakers of all ages. We are committed to a personalized approach that provides students who are learning English with the necessary tools to succeed in the classroom and beyond. 

4. Evaluation and support 

Our team evaluates students on their level of expertise  for oral, reading, and writing proficiency prior to admission. They are placed in our supplemental program based on their results.

Based on their level of expertise we then integrate them into the ELDP program every year with other English learners of all levels.  

5. Personalized attention  

Our small class sizes foster our commitment to personalized learning, allowing specialists to meet the needs of each unique student.  

Students progress to every level with continued guidance and support from our teachers who prepare them for final assessments. They ultimately graduate from the program by passing the tests based on the language requirements of the curriculum.
