Since 1999, Royal Canadian Institute of International Studies (RCIIS) has been helping students from around the world learn English in a welcoming and a supportive environment. RCIIS offers various English programs for beginner to advanced level students to match the needs of everyone. Our teachers create a fun learning atmosphere while assisting students with any weakness that they have. The counselors at RCIIS are friendly and approachable and they work closely with students to design a pathway to reach their study goals.

At RCIIS, we use a duel path system:

One path is primarily focused on speaking. This program includes: ESL Foundation, Power Speaking 1-4, Business Communication and Advanced Discussion / Contemporary Issues. Students who choose this path are aiming to improve their verbal communication skills, so that they can feel confident in English speaking environments.

The other path is focused on Academics. This path includes: ESL Foundation, Pre-Academic 1-4, IELTS Preparation and EAP-English for Academic Purpose. This path is suitable for students who have a plan to study at Canadian colleges and universities. It not only prepares international students with the confidence for the English proficiency tests for Canadian higher education admissions, but also includes ESL pathways with some reputable Canadian public and private colleges and universities.

At RCIIS, we also provide a variety of elective afternoon programs to enhance and support the learning results of students from listening, reading, writing and speaking.

RCIIS’s teaching philosophy “Learning by Doing” is designed to promote communication by preparing students to converse effectively inside and outside the classroom. Students are encouraged to speak and discuss in all of our classes to become confident in communicating with everyone. Students also get a chance to apply their learning when they are on trips or social events that are organized by the school.

RCIIS has classes that ensure a personalized learning experience for each student. The campus is spacious and bright with a Café setting in the lobby for students to enjoy their break time and relax when they aren’t in class. The school is based in a safe and environmentally friendly neighbourhood. It is very conveniently located about 3 minutes walking distance North from the Davisville subway station on the west side of Yonge Street. It is also very close to the Yonge and Eglinton, funnily enough characterized as “Yonge and Eligible”. The nearby amenities are mainly centered for specific activities such as places to eat, shopping and many more.
