Course description

The Connect English MAX programs use an intensive, multi-skill approach. Students achieve success through focused, customized attention in speaking, listening, reading and writing. The Connect English MAX programs include English grammar development, academic reading and writing, real-world media projects, and planned social interaction events that are tailored to adult learners’ needs and interests.

The 18-hour-per-week English Max Program prepares students for academic and professional success as well as everyday situations. English Max offers students great classes and exciting material delivered by knowledgeable, caring teachers.

Each day of the English MAX class at Connect English consists of grammar or vocabulary presentation and review, transitioning into content-based projects and collaborative group assignments. All classes are communicative in nature, challenging students to solve problems and achieve goals through spoken and written communication with their peers and instructors.

"I met amazing people and learned a lot about myself."

Sarah-Michèle Gaudreau, student from Canada

I really liked the school because it is a small school so the teachers were always available to help you if there was something you did not understand. Also, I liked the subjects that we viewed in my class, they were all very interesting and I thought it was fantastic to hear all different points of view from the other students! My teacher Charles was amazing, I can tell that he really likes his job! He was always available to help us and did not mind to take time to answer all of our questions. One thing that I would change if I could would be were I was staying. Indeed, it was far from the school so I had to take the bus each morning and I did not like it. Also, when I arrived the first week, I had to change of apartment because unfortunately the apartment that I was supposed to go to was badly maintained. Overall, my experience at Connect English was fantastic and I will always remember how fun it was.

visa

Visa support

We cannot apply for visas on behalf of students. However, the school can supply you with all the documentation you need to support your visa application.

If you are studying full time in the United States for more than 18 hours per week, you will receive an I-20 that you need to submit to the US embassy along with your F-1 student visa application. The I-20 has a SEVIS tracking number on it. Students who wish to apply for a student visa must pay the SEVIS fee online before going to the US embassy or consulate for their visa interview.

Your I-20 will be sent to your home address by regular mail at no charge to you. If you wish to receive your paperwork by express mail, you will be charged $100 when you register.

Please note that United States law states that an I-20 can only be issued to students who intend to pursue full-time English language studies. United States law does not permit students to study part-time with an F-1 Student Visa. If you are studying for less than 18 hours per week, you have to apply for a Visitor Visa (B1/B2) on your own.
