Why study English online?

Studying English online is new to most people. But you will be glad to know that it’s very similar to learning English in the classroom – only here you get ALL the attention. That means you can improve your English much faster, at your own pace, in your own time – and, for successful applicants, the cost of your course has been donated by Intuto Canada!

All our courses are really interactive, which means you won’t get bored. You can repeat all the lessons as many times as you like, so you are sure to improve exactly the skills you want. And when you buy a course, you have unlimited access to it – that means you can study for an hour three times a week, or four hours five times a week. You decide!

There is help online if you need it and you get a Study Plan when you sign up. And very importantly, you receive a Certificate of Study from the Canadian International Learning Foundation and our partner school (either the Kandahar Institute of Modern Studies in Afghanistan or the Youth Leadership Development Foundation in Yemen) once you have completed your course.

If you are not sure which course to study or which level you’re at, try out our online assessment. It’s completely free and only takes about 15 – 20 minutes to complete.


Once you’ve finished the assessment you can see here which courses are right for you.
