English as a Second Language - ESL

ESL English Classes in Mississauga, Toronto, Brampton

CIMT Colleges provides comprehensive ENGLISH COURSES for new immigrants to Canada, or for those who wish to upgrade skills for IELTS or TOEFL. Our four-skill program of Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing provides months of necessary language practice.

We offer an integrated four-skill program providing learners with abundant opportunities for communicative and meaningful language practice with the cutting edge advantage of testing the knowledge through execution. The students gradually develop the ability to generate and understand conversation from simple to the very complex and demanding situations. We believe in the saying that there was never a good knowledge which could not be communicated to others, and this course is the tool to put your knowledge not only into words, but comprehendible words in a professional manner.




These four levels are the first half of our English language courses.  These four sections of training, Levels 1-4, are for those who have no English ability.  The goal is to introduce written and spoken communication in daily situations. 

Students who wish to achieve minimum scores on IELTS (overall band of 5.5 or more) or TOEFL (minimum score of 213/300), or who want to continue into a CIMT College diploma program, must also complete Levels 5-8.                Levels 1-4 are not offered separately.
