East Coast School of Languages (ECSL), located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, is an English language school owned and operated by experienced ESL instructors. ECSL is also an official IELTS test centre. The school caters to motivated students who want to work hard to achieve academic excellence and personal success. Class sizes are small – usually between 8 and 10 students, with slightly larger classes for higher academic levels. We offer seven main programs of study: English for Communication, University College Pathway (with bridging level), IELTS Preparation, Intensive IELTS, Masters Preparation, International Business English, and Teaching English to Young Learners. We understand that your language school experience lasts a lifetime and that choosing where to study is a major decision. It is important that you carefully evaluate a school’s location, philosophy, and learning environment to ensure they match your own learning style.
