Overview:

Our ESL classes are based on a unique UMC Model that maximizes student-teacher interaction and communicative learning when studying English.

Designed and created in UMC, our unique techniques and activities used in the classroom are designed to develop both fluency AND accuracy with the ultimate goal of language production.

Each lesson is allocated to different skills such as listening strategies, vocabulary development, reading & writing skills, pronunciation, fluency improvement and so on. That maximizes our 4-week terms and allows you to focus on the core skills you need to become proficient.

Saeed Bayounes (Saudi Arabia)

General ESL - 24 weeks

All the teachers who I’ve had a chance to study with were so kind and friendly! Everybody is always smiling. Teachers in ESL are very knowledgeable and eager to share their knowledge with us even outside the classroom. Teachers and staff make everybody comfortable and happy at UMC.

This atmosphere really inspired my ambition to study hard. I tried a lot of courses, and loved all of them. I wish I can come back again next year and experience it again. I really love Toronto and UMC! 😃
