February school newsletter
During February 2018 IGK is happy to be hosting the most students for February/March in our 16 year history (90) with individual students from Mexico, Korea, Colombia, Japan, Iran, France, Brazil, Quebec and Switzerland taking full and part time Practical ESL, Private tutoring (IELTS), High School Experience and Volunteer Placements.
Two Japanese university groups will complete their studies at IGK later this month and in March. The 3 week programs include ESL, Business Communications and a Volunteer Placement in a Canadian company. If you send university groups abroad you should consider this option. The students receive credits from their university for completing this program. http://igcanada.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/2018-ESL-Internship-Program-for-Groups-.pdf
IGK is also pleased to be hosting a new high school group from Gunma, Japan who are taking our Winter Youth Vacation Program for 2 weeks. This program features morning ESL classes and afternoon activities. http://igcanada.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/2018-19-Winter-Vacation-Program-.pdf
Another new high school group from Tokyo is taking IGK’s ESL+High School Experience Program for 4 weeks.
We are already receiving applications for our ESL+ Wine and Agriculture Tour starting in April as well as our Senior Program for ages 50+ and all of the teen summer camps. July 1-August 15 is already heavily booked for homestay placements so if you have clients wanting to come during this period they will need to apply by the end of April.
IGK’s digitally enhanced curriculum, off2class.com, is a big hit with students. IGK was recently featured on the off2class website as we are the first Canadian school to implement this Canadian made curriculum. The curriculum can be easily accessed on a smart phone, notebook or tablet.
NEW PROGRAM-IGK is offering a 9 week, 120 hour online TESOL Certificate program starting on April 2, 2018.
The next in class TESOL program begins on May 7th for 2 weeks. If you have upper intermediate to proficiency level students interested in learning how to teach English to adults and children then this is the program for them! IGK offers an in house practicum for graduates plus our program is over $1000 less expensive than similar programs at public community colleges and we think much better! IGK has a 95% job placement rate with recent graduates landing jobs at IGK and in Mexico, Chile and China.
