Specialized Group ESL Programs

Specialized group ESL and ELL programs

Students participate in interactive outdoor and indoor activites.

SMUS has hosted a wide variety of groups and can tailor any program to a range of specific needs. Our group programs can be purely cultural or meet a specific goal, such as preparing for the TOEIC test. We can tailor a program for any group of any age to meet specific needs, at various times during the year.

Customized programs are available to groups wishing to gain an educational and cultural experience in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. Generally, each of these programs is developed around a core structure consisting of a morning of English-language study and an afternoon of outdoor and cultural activities. All programs integrate their relevant activity into the English Academic Program and can be offered at numerous times throughout the year.
