CCI Program

One Program, Three Ways To Learn

General ESL (Mornings & Evenings)

Learn all the essential language skills – speaking, listening, reading, writing and grammar – with an
experienced, professional teacher. Small classes give you lots of opportunity for conversation and
time to ask questions. Study and practice English every day, and have fun doing it! (15 hours/week)


Intensive ESL

The best of both worlds! A day in the Intensive ESL program begins with our General ESL class, followed by a specialization of your choice to focus on speaking or writing. The perfect choice for students dedicated to learning English fast! (20hours/week)

Specialized Courses

CCI-LEX can work with groups to deliver classes specific to your needs.  Want something more specific to improve pronunciation skills, academic writing, or for test preparation? Contact us to discuss!

Most classes in our CCI Program run on an ongoing basis, which is called continuous enrolment.

Continuous enrolment means that you can start classes right away – you don’t have to wait a few weeks or months for a new class to start on a specific date.

If there is space in the class you would like to join, you can start the next Monday.

However, some levels of our classes are very popular and fill up quickly.

If a specific class is full, this means there may be a waiting list for the class you would like to join.

Students must register for a minimum of 4 weeks.

Most classes are 17 weeks.  However, some classes may be shorter or longer, depending on the class.

CCI-LEX offers great classes at very affordable rates.

Registration Fee

To register for any course at CCI-LEX, there is a registration fee of $35, which covers the cost of creating a new student account for you.

This fee is a one-time fee, which means that you only pay it the first time you register as a student at CCI-LEX, and not every time you register for a new class.

The only exception to this is that a student who is not registered for 6 months or more will be required to pay the registration fee again.

Class Fees

When schools talk about fees, or the cost of a class, it is called tuition. Besides the one-time registration fee, our students also pay a fee, or tuition, for each class.

In the CCI Program, classes cost between $270 to $620 per 4 weeks, depending on the class.

Textbooks and Materials

The cost of the books and worksheets for a class vary between $15 and $110.

Special Funding

We are proud to offer discounts for long-term registrations in the CCI Program.

However, there is no government funding or financial assistance available for the CCI Program.

The maximum number of students in a CCI class is 16 students, but most classes are 10-12 students.

CCI classes are taught by highly qualified, certified TESL teachers.

The teachers in our CCI Program all have University degrees, TESL training and TESL experience.
