English courses while in WHV

Discover our English courses for people with Work Holiday Visas.

STUDENT PROFILE

This online English course program is designed for people who have decided to settle in Canada through a WHV (Work Holiday Visa). Learning English or improving your level of English is a significant advantage when immigrating to Canada. Whether you live in Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto or Vancouver, the English language will serve you on a daily basis and in your professional life.

Our English classes are private and specialized to better meet everyone's needs. They are given online, by Skype or by phone. This program can be followed by someone who wants to start learning English or by someone who wants to improve on a particular aspect of the language. For example, someone with a Work Holiday Visa looking for a job in the commercial field may decide to work on its skills to converse in business English.

PROGRAM BENEFITS

This English course program gives you the opportunity to discuss with a teacher on a regular basis about topics related to daily life or work environment. Speaking in English will become more and more obvious. This program is also rewarding for the following reasons:
  • Program adapted to the availability of individuals
  • Customized courses tailored to the specific needs of immigration and integration
  • Learning objectives determined between you and the teacher
  • Tracking according to your individual rhythm
  • Courses available for students of all levels
  • Frequent assessments to observe progress
  • Exercises and homework (if needed) to consolidate what was learned in class

DISCUSSED SUBJECTS

The first courses usually have as objective to better know the student and to allow the teacher to identify the needs of the student. The exchanges between you and the teacher on a targeted theme will allow you to develop automatisms, fluency, correct grammatical sentence structures and to enrich your vocabulary.

Taking English lessons while in WHV can be beneficial to find a job, create a new circle of friends, and communicate daily. Tell your teacher what your main goal is and he will build the classes according to your needs.

TEACHING METHODS

The English course program for people in WHV can be delivered via Skype or telephone. It will be possible to follow your classes at home or during your office lunch time. It is even possible to follow these courses on the road, during a visit of the province of Quebec for example! Skype has a significant advantage which is to be able to suit both people who are more visual than those who are more auditory. Indeed, the teacher can quickly provide explanations to the student by communicating them orally or in writing.

It is important to add that changes to the course schedule are possible, without penalty, with 48 hours notice. There is a study area that contains different learning tools. This space provides access to the course notes exchanged between you and your teacher. You can also discuss with your teacher your desire to do exercises outside of school hours to consolidate the concepts learned during the course. The latter will then send you your homework via this study area.

LENGTH OF THE CLASSES

Global Lingua wants to develop flexible class schedules, so courses are given at the frequency and time most convenient for the student. This allows you to choose your class schedules according to your working hours. Students generally choose to start the program with a 30-minute class to get used to conversing in English before taking one-hour classes.

OTHER COURSES

It is possible with Global Lingua to take courses to learn languages other than French or English. You may decide to take Spanish classes (for a future WHV in Chile or Peru?), Brazilian Portuguese (for a WHV in Brazil?), Mandarin or Italian. These classes are also offered by Skype or by phone.
