About Program

In the next 10 years, half the world’s population is expected to speak in English. In order to gain a competitive edge in professional and academic journey, one must be equipped with the linguistic skills of English.

FCMT’s one-year Certificate program is prepared for speakers of English as a second language who wish to improve their academic language skills for Canadian educational and professional environments. It will provide a strong foundation in academic oral and written communication for further postsecondary opportunities, as well as a career enhancement. Successful graduates of this program will gain entry into other regular programs offered by FCMT.

This program integrates reading, writing, listening and speaking skills with an academic focus. The curriculum is specifically designed for non-native speakers of English who want to improve their writing, communication and critical thinking skills for entry into college diploma, degree, and graduate certificate programs or for further professional development.

Small class sizes will provide students with an intensive English immersion experience. Students will be part of a rich international and cross-cultural environment created by classmates from a wide range of linguistic, educational and professional backgrounds.
