Custom English Programs

The English Language Institute (ELI) offers custom English language training both in Toronto and abroad. We design flexible programs to meet the specific needs of institutions, educational agencies, corporations and government agencies. We specialize in ESL/EFL, English Plus (ESL plus Animation, English for Nurses, etc.) and in Teacher Training (TESL/TEFL).

In addition to customized instruction, our programs can include tours, visits, sightseeing, guest speakers, community and business networking, and recreational activities.

All our custom programs include certificates and a graduation ceremony, as well as post-program access (available over the internet) to our famous digital language lab for the same amount of time as the program. For a four-week program, clients have access to our lab for four weeks following the program. This ensures that clients continue to improve their English skills following the program.

If you have questions about your specific programming needs, please contact us.
