Meet our great team of  CCI TEACHERS!

 

CCI courses are taught by highly qualified ESL professionals who are caring, experienced instructors.  Our small classes offer you lots of opportunity for speaking and teacher support.  Our intensive ESL classes cover all essential skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing, rounded out with grammar and vocabulary.  The CCI program is a great choice for employers working with temporary foreign workers, who require support with their verbal and non-verbal communication skills at the workplace.

CCI offers continuous enrollment - students can join the class every Monday (or Tuesday for some part-time classes), as space allows.  If a class is full, new students will have to wait to start their studies until a space becomes available.  

Students can choose to try one FREE OBSERVATION CLASS before registration.  (*Please note:  there are no observations for morning General ESL classes in the last two weeks of the term or during term break)

Students can choose from 4 kinds of ESL:
