English Language Schools in Canada
Canada has two official languages, meaning that international students
can come to Canada to study either English as a Second Language
(ESL) or French as a Second Language (FSL).
Many people choose to study ESL in Canada because of the many excellent
ESL schools across the country and because of the neutral Canadian
accent. Over the years, Canada has developed considerable expertise
in the teaching of ESL because so many immigrants have required
upgrading of their English skills. International students can study
ESL for general, business or specific purposes. In addition, students
can receive training in the teaching of ESL. Almost all universities
and community colleges have ESL programs. In general, most private
ESL schools are very flexible in terms of program requirements and

FSL programs are offered both through private and public institutes.
Most, but not all FSL schools are located in the province of Québec.
Similar to ESL programs, students can usually enter a FSL school
program at any time of the year for any length of study. Students
enrolled in ESL or FSL programs for up to six months may study in
Canada without a Study Permit.
