Cambrian’s ESL Program Accredited by Languages Canada

Posted on Wednesday June 19, 2013

International students planning to enhance their English language skills in order to pursue further study at the postsecondary level in Canada can now do so at Cambrian College.  Languages Canada, an internationally-recognized body for English as a Second Language schools, has officially accredited Cambrian’s English for Academic Purposes program.

“An ability to function effectively in the English language is crucial for the success of international students studying in Canada,” explained Cambrian President, Sylvia Barnard.  “Our program curriculum will give students an immersion in the English language and Canadian culture.  Graduates of the one-year Ontario College Certificate program will have the foundational language skills required to communicate effectively in academic or professional environments.”

“The official accreditation of Cambrian’s English for Academic Purposes program provides the College with a critical tool for recruiting international students,” said Geoffrey Dalton, Director, Cambrian International.  “Languages Canada is recognized around the world, and earning this accreditation is a ringing endorsement of Cambrian’s position as a destination for international study.” Further information about Cambrian’s program is available online at www.cambrianinternational.ca/esl.

Accreditation from Languages Canada requires member schools to meet a series of quality assurance standards, including benchmarks for teaching staff and curriculum, as well as student services, marketing and promotion, administration and student admissions.

Cambrian’s English for Academic Purposes received its official accreditation in April, 2013.  The accreditation remains valid through April 2017.
