Heartland’s offers comprehensive English as a Second Language (ESL) programs for international learners. Heartland programs are made to suit your learning needs – from beginner to advanced levels.
The Intensive English Program is a flexible ESL program focusing on improving your English ability. The Semi-Intensive program is available for students who would like to study part-time. For maximum English practice, the Super-Intensive program includes regular classes plus either an IELTS preparation class or a conversation class.
Effective October 20, 2020 the Government of Canada allowed an exemption from travel restrictions for international students to enter Canada. Approved DLI schools with a COVID readiness plan can now accept international students who have a Study Permit. Short term and long term students can apply for a Study Permit. Both Heartland locations are on this list and ready to welcome students.
We are excited for students to once again be able to travel from overseas and come to study in Canada. Read more about the Heartland 2021 Safe Study Plan
