English for International Students

We offer English language training and immersion programs for International students in Ottawa, Canada.

Our English language training programs are offered at three levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.

Courses are generally 5–6 weeks of intensive immersion in the English language.

Instruction is focused on conversation and writing, and programs are designed using the English Oxford curriculum.

Class sizes are small, allowing our instructors to focus on the unique needs of the student.

Our instructors are English-speaking.

Cartier Language School is committed to providing a positive, supportive learning environment that supports international students in achieving a clear set of goals and objectives.

We use a combination of classroom instruction and field trips. This approach provides wide range of experiences that encourage language development in all areas – social as well as professional.

As Canada’s capital city, Ottawa has a wealth of cultural offerings – museums, theatres, restaurants and historical sites. Weekly field trips provide students opportunities to practice their new language in a social setting, and students come away with a true North American experience.

Cartier Language School is centrally and conveniently located in downtown Ottawa, close to all amenities and public transportation.
