Learn English with a Canadian teacher from the comfort of your own home
Canada's best language school offers online courses. You can learn English at home, as well as prepare for IELTS or for admission to a Canadian university.
One of Canada's best language schools, ILAC, with branches in Toronto and Vancouver, has launched an online project ILAC KISS (Keep It Simple and Smart). The move to online is connected with the coronavirus pandemic affecting almost every country in the world.
Once again, ILAC was recognized as the best language school in Canada and received the Top Choice Awards.
Distance learning offers the same programs as offline courses: General English, Business English, University Pathway, preparation for Cambridge exams, IELTS and TOEFL.
The University Pathway program allows you to prepare for admission to a Canadian university or college without taking the IELTS and TOEFL exams. You can also get free consultation on enrolling in Canadian institutions through this program. In addition, studying in a language school is a good way to get a visa to Canada and try to find a job there.

Answers to frequently asked questions
How do I pay tuition?
The payment process is described in detail at the link.
If I realize that the program is too difficult, can I change it to another program or transfer to another group?
The test before you start your course will show your level of English. Based on this, you will be allocated to the right group. If your language level is not good, you will start with the General English program. If the group is too difficult, you may be transferred to a group with the lower level.
Can I take leave while studying?
Yes, but you need to notify your agent 2 weeks before. If you fail to do it, you will get a fine of $50 CAD.
For example, you find out on Friday that you are going on a business trip on Monday and will not be able to attend classes. The school will give you time off while you are travelling but will charge you a penalty of $50 CAD.
Will I be able to take breaks between courses? For example, 2 weeks of classes, a week break, then 2 weeks of classes again, or will I have to take classes without a break?
Courses do not involve breaks. If you need a leave, you must give us 2 weeks' notice. If you do not, the school will charge you a fine of $50 CAD.
Is it possible to transfer missed classes?
Rescheduling and reimbursement for missed classes is not available.
Will I be able to change my class time if my work schedule changes?
If you want to change your class schedule, you will need to give 3 days' notice before your intended change of time slot. In this case you will be transferred to another group with a new teacher.
How many people are in the class and what is the principle of grouping?
There is an average of 10-12 students in a group. You will be allocated according to your level of English and your program of study. You will be tested during the course to determine your progress. Based on your results, you may be transferred to a stronger or a weaker group or stay in yours.
