Registration for our ESL Beginner to Advanced program is now open!

ESL is a course designed exclusively for students who would like to enroll in any program at CFTI but do not have English as their first language and/or do not have a graduation certificate received form a government recognized Canadian education institution (middle school, highschool, college etc).

The course prepares the student for international recognized English language tests – IELTS and TOEFL. It also includes as part of the work in class exercises relevant for a student interested in pursuing a career in film, e.g. actors, screenwriters, directors. The students will test their English abilities in such exercises as lines performance, screenwriting, essay writing and will improve their vocabulary with film and TV specific terms.

All students interested in joining any of our programs who do not meet the English Language proficiency requirements must register for ESL Beginner to Advanced.
