Program structure


CLLC’s flexible, student-centred General English (GE) Program consists of six levels, ranging from Introductory English to Advanced. The GE program develops key skills in five areas:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Listening
  • Speaking
  • Critical Thinking

CLLC`s custom curriculum is based on a number of ESL standards such as the Canadian Language Benchmarks, TOEFL, and IELTS. Upon reaching the Advanced level, students usually achieve a TOEFL score of 70-75 and IELTS score of 6.0, although students have also achieved TOEFL scores as high as 90.

Most students will spend 8-10 weeks per level, however, students are able to progress through the levels at their own pace through weekly start dates, weekly move ups, weekly graduation and flexible schedule options.


Plus One is a class that occurs from 1:00 – 2:00, Monday to Thursday. It is a CLLC trademarked program that allows students to choose from a variety of topics that cater to their interests or academic weakness. Plus One topics change every two weeks, so students get the chance to study multiple topics during their study period.
