The August English Preparation Program is designed to prepare international students into their new surroundings so that, in September, they can start school with confidence.  This program is offered exclusively to our students attending Limestone area schools in September 2020.

The program introduces students to the colloquial English expressions they will not likely have heard in their home country, and the academic English they will encounter in their new Canadian classrooms. Students will learn about the culture and expectations of Canadian schools, and discuss them in relation to those in their home country. The program instructor will work with students to develop strategies on how to be successful in their new Limestone school.

In addition, many of the program activities will take place outside of the classroom. They are designed to familiarize students with various services and venues around Kingston.  This will include riding and understanding the public transit system, how to order food, what to do with phone plans, banking and Canadian courtesy.  There are many local experiences included in this program! They have about half of the day in school (air-conditioned!) and half the day or evenings exploring Kingston, going to beaches, movies in the Square, Fort Henry and more!

The September four week program is a short stay program with LaSalle Secondary School. LaSalle hosts students for four weeks and the students live with families of children that attend LaSalle. They attend classes in English for part of the day and attend classes with their host student for the other half of the day. This allows students to have an academic experience and a Canadian homestay experience with a family in the LaSalle ISS area of Kingston.  This is an academic program and students will receive feedback on their English proficiency and a certificate of their standing.  

 

Students go on all of the excursions that the full-year students do, including activities within Kingston, an overnight camping trip to a wilderness camp, sports nights, a trip to Historic Fort Henry, and a trip to Canada's Capital, Ottawa, Ontario.
