East Coast School of Languages Canada

East Coast School of Languages offers students exceptional English language instruction and a complete Canadian cultural experience, both of which are enhanced by our school's small class sizes, individually focused attention, and a warm, nurturing, and friendly environment.

The school is located in the heart of Halifax, a safe, friendly city that combines historic charm with modern facilities. Whatever your interests, you can enjoy them in this small but exciting port city.

The facility is warm and welcoming with ten bright and spacious classrooms to comfortably accommodate the small class sizes of 8 to 10 students. At break times students can relax in an inviting student lounge or check their emails in modern high-speed computer lab. The strict English-Only Policy means that students must speak English at all times.

ECSL offers 5 levels of study. The Program choices allow students to concentrate on their specific area of interest. Students receive 28 hours of in-class instruction and activities each week guided by experienced, dedicated and caring instructors. Monthly evaluations monitor progress and Certificates of Completion are given at our monthly Graduation Ceremony.

  • English for Communicative Purposes, (ECP)
  • English for Business, (EFB)
  • Academic TOEFL (AT)

The Personal Coordinator Program gives every student the chance to speak monthly with an ECSL staff member. This ensures that every ESCL student is 100% satisfied during his or her time at the school.

Homestay families are carefully chosen by the Director of Student Services. All families provide a private bedroom, a quiet place to study and three nutritious meals per day. The families live in safe residential neighborhoods close to bus routes. All students receive a Letter of Welcome from their families before arrival.

Weekly seasonal Friday social activities are organized by our Social Coordinator to highlight the best of Halifax and Nova Scotia.

Activities include:
