English as a Second Language (ESL)

Learning takes place inside and outside the classroom. Here at Granville College, you will improve on skills and fluency in the English language. You will learn realistic and useful language and be prepared to speak English with confidence.

With a communicative and student-centred approach in our teaching, our ESL classes integrate the skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing with grammar, vocabulary, functional language and pronunciation.

Our activities are designed to help you learn more quickly and improve your English knowledge and skills. Whether it be a workshop or an outing discovering the city of Vancouver, you’ll be practicing English amongst other students and locals to improve your communication skills.
