LaSalle College is proud to announce a new partnership with Canadian as a Second Language Institute (CSLI), following its acquisition by the LCI Education network.
"Through this new partnership, international students who wish to learn English will now have the opportunity to choose from or even divide their English language studies between two schools in two different Canadian cities: the Montreal International Language Centre (MILC) in Montreal and CSLI in Vancouver, and ultimately pursue a career college training at either LaSalle College in Montréal, Inter-Dec College or LaSalle College Vancouver" mentions Veronica Cartagenova, Director, International Bureau.
Devoted to helping people improve their confidence in speaking, while improving their language and communication skills, CSLI is one of Vancouver’s only BBB’s A+ accredited language schools. CSLI is also a Designated Learning Institute by Immigration Canada, meets the provincial British Columbia Education Quality Assurance (EQA) and is accredited by BC’s Private Career Training Institutions Agency (PCTIA).
"Our operations at LaSalle College Vancouver are increasingly growing, especially since the inauguration of the new Yaletown campus in 2014. For several months, we were actively looking for a partner to welcome our international students, representing nearly 25% of our Vancouver student population, and CSLI, by its tradition of excellence and reputation, was an ideal partner" added Claude Marchand, President and CEO of the LCI Education network.
"We couldn’t have found a better fit for CSLI. Like CSLI, the LCI Education network is a proudly Canadian organization where their career college offer is a perfect platform for our international students. We are very proud of what we have created over the last 24 years and are confident CSLI will flourish under this new direction" stated Lawrence and Lori-Ann Keenan, Founders of CSLI.
Open to pedagogical innovation and always ready to face new professional challenges, three teachers at LaSalle College experimented with a cutting-edge technology. Nathalie Goron, Daniela Caputo and Manon Wascher offered their students online courses via the Adobe Connect virtual platform.
