About Study Abroad Canada


About Study Abroad Canada Language Institute

You are in good hands from the moment you land! Study Abroad Canada Language Institute management, teachers, and homestay families are all ready to help you every step of the way!

Since 1994, SACLI has been dedicated to helping students from around the world achieve their educational goals. Our belief is that language is best learned island style. That means skills should be taught, practised and lived, and we will help you do exactly that. With our newly developed curriculum, you have the flexibility of following either a general skills or an academic skills focused language training program. One of our friendly staff is ready to help you every step of the way.

We have partnerships with some of the highest ranking universities in Canada, and with both the provincial and federal governments. In addition, SACLI is a member of Languages Canada. All of our instructors are TESL Canada certified, many with advanced degrees. Our instructors will provide you with in-depth training both in and out of the classroom. In-class work will focus on speaking, listening, grammar, and writing. You will explore current events and different cultures and your instructors will work hard to meet all of your needs.  They will go beyond the classroom into the community by introducing you to social activities and local events in the city centre where you will truly feel how welcoming our island can be. You will also have ample opportunity to practise your English skills with your caring homestay family. Our Homestay Coordinator will match you with one of our fantastic homestay families based on your likes and needs. By becoming involved in your homestay family, you will greatly rapidly increase your language proficiency and experience firsthand our hospitality and island culture.

We look forward to welcoming you come and study and live with is on our beautiful island and experience what it is like to learn island style for yourself.
