East Coast Language College/Oxford International- Halifax
We understand that a student’s language school experience lasts a lifetime and that choosing where to study is a major decision. Our students describe our school as a family, where they feel comfortable and cared for. Like a family, we are strict about some things — attendance, homework, our English-only policy and the number of students we accept from any one nationality. Students who are serious about achieving their learning objectives excel in our small classes supported by warm, dynamic instructors. Students also need to have fun — in our school, we never know when we’ll have an impromptu birthday party, a hip-hop dance show, or a sing-along. Our students and staff are very talented! Check out our Facebook Student Group to see what we have been doing in school and on our exciting social activities.

ECLC prides itself on offering programs with challenging curricula and clearly defined outcomes. We provide a University College Pathway program (UCP) to twenty of Atlantic Canada’s universities and colleges. Successful graduates of this program do not require an external exam score, such as IELTS. In addition, we provide General English (EC), English for Parents (EP), IELTS Preparation (IP), and a Business English for the Workplace (BEW) program. ECLC is a leader in developing customized ESL programs for groups, including a very popular summer program for teens. ECLC’s career college, East Coast International College, offers a teacher training program and a Continuing Care Assistant (CCA) program). ECLC is a multiple-year winner of the Consumer Choice Award for Best Language School in Halifax, and is a subsidiary of OIEG Oxford International Education Group.
