Why Study English in Halifax

For Studies: If you would like to pursue higher education, you will be happy to know that Halifax is home to some top-notch institutions, such as Dalhousie University and the University of King’s College. These institutions ask their international students to show proof of English proficiency before enroling in their programs because they are taught and examined in English. To be able to pass them with ease, you need not only to understand spoken and written English but also be able to communicate fluently. So, you must pass a recognized English language proficiency test, such as TOEFL, IELTS or MELAB, to prove your level of English. These exams are quite challenging, so make sure you prepare for them well in advance! At Language Trainers, we have specialized courses for Exam Preparation, so contact us today and we will start preparing an English program that can be adapted to your needs and requirements!

For Work: In Halifax, and around Anglophone Canada, English is crucial for anyone who wants to establish themselves in the business world. In 2017, over 75% of Canadians reported using English most often at work. Listed by fDi Magazine as one of the top 10 cities for business friendliness in the Americas in 2017, Halifax is the major economic centre of Atlantic Canada and offers a promising future for anyone who wants to explore its limitless potential. For example, major companies like Eastlink, Bell Canada, Blue Ocean and Nova Scotia Health Authority are always looking for employees who have mastered the English language, so make sure you take some lessons with us to truly stand out when looking for a new job in Halifax!

For Social: Knowing English in Halifax will also allow you to connect with the local population on a deeper level. To make use of what you learn in your classes with Language Trainers, why don’t you join the Halifax International English Conversation Meetup? Their main goal is to practise English, exchange cultures and enjoy learning new things from each other while making new friends. And if you like sports, you can attend some events where you can meet people with a similar passion while putting your English to use. Hockey teams are the most popular sports draw in Halifax and the Scotiabank Centre is home to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's Halifax Mooseheads, who often do well. Why not attend some of their matches? You will certainly find some other fans with whom you can talk about your favourite teams using the English skills you learn with us!
