English for Academic Purposes
The best way to transition from the life of an ESL student into a Canadian post-secondary institute, is through our English for Academic Purpose program. Conventional ESL programs do not educate students with the skills necessary to prosper at the advanced academic level required in Canadian colleges and universities. RCIIS is uniquely positioned to offer a three-month program which fills that void.
The English for Academic Purposes program is designed to provide students with the skills necessary to succeed in the Canadian post-secondary environment. This program will educate international students with not only the language skills, but also academic and life skills necessary to succeed in a Canadian post-secondary institution.
Students will engage in a wide range of university disciplines and be encouraged to participate in discussions on open-ended questions. With regards to the listening and speaking component, students will be exposed to different viewpoints while working towards both individual and group related activities such as organized debates and presentations. Additionally, students will build and expand their comprehension of concepts and vocabulary with a particular focus on the Academic Word List.
