Studying English courses in English schools in Canada
The second largest country in the world, Canada is a good choice for learning English. Although the strong economy has reduced the gap between costs between English courses in Canada and the US it is still cheaper as well as having a higher standard of English. Though Canada has cut many of the colonial ties with the UK, the government is a constitutional monarchy with Queen Elizabeth II as head of state.
The population of Canada is just approximately 32 million people, 75% of these live within 150 kilometres of the border with the US. The capital is Ottawa, with a population of 813,000 (the fourth largest city).
The provincial governments do not have an official regulation of English language schools for the purpose of visa applications or quality assurance. Languages Canada
and CAPLS are the oraganisations that represent private langauge schools in Canada. Their members are bound
by certain guidelines and membership of these organisations implies that a school follows recommended guidelines for quality.
