The main emphases of the Practical ESL program are communication and functional English for daily life. Practical ESL programs begin weekly year round. The minimum class size is 6, the average is 8 and the maximum is 12. IGK guarantees a very personalized, fast paced and dynamic approach to language learning with an innovative digital curriculum (www.off2class.com). Northstar and Headway are used as supplementary texts. The majority of students gain fluency in 24 weeks or less depending on their entry level. Students can study from 1 to 24 weeks. At IGK students receive full 60 minute lessons! This is an important fact to check when comparing schools as many schools advertise the number of ‘lessons’ offered per week (which could range anywhere from 30-60 minutes) and not the number of actual in class hours. For example, another Kelowna ESL school advertises '25 lessons' per week but the actual contact time is 20.5 hours per week whereas at IGK students actually receive the full 25 contact hours per week. IGK's full time program works out much cheaper than the other school's in comparison. Full time Monday-Friday 9:00am – 2:55pm 25 hours per week AM Five levels of Practical ESL are offered from Beginner to Advanced which focus on the combined skills of reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, listening and speaking. Students are placed according to their placement test scores. Students typically move up to the next level in 6 to 8 weeks. The maximum length of each level is 12 weeks. IGK uses an innovative, digitally enhanced curriculum. Students need to provide their own laptop computer, tablet or smart phone to access this curriculum. PM Students are placed in afternoon Conversation/Canadian Culture programs according to their placement test scores. Listening, Speaking and Pronunciation are the main focus and field trips, presentations and group projects are incorporated to reinforce ‘real life’ language practice. IELTS exam preparation is offered on select dates in March and September for 4 or 8 weeks and a variety of other electives such as Cambridge FCE/CAE and Business Communications are offered from time to time based on student interest. *Notes *Homework requirements vary with the level but students can expect 30 minutes to 1 hour of homework each day. *There are weekly quizzes and tests to measure progress. *A minimum of 6 students are required to run any given elective or level. Contact IGK for a current selection. *This program is subject to a monthly $25 material fee, this cost will apply for 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks, a 2 month charge will be applied for 5, 6, 7 and 8 weeks, and so on. *The school charges a bank transfer fee of $25 for payments.

Living with a Canadian family is one of the best ways for students to practice their English skills while at the same time learning about Canadian culture and lifestyle. IGK host families are carefully screened, and inspected on a regular basis for their ability to provide a safe, clean, caring and friendly living environment. Host families go through an intensive interview process, criminal record check and fill out a family profile prior to hosting students. Almost all IGK host families have pets; dogs, cats or both. Pets are treated as part of the family in Canada. IGK’s on site Homestay Coordinators customize each placement with regards to special needs, requests, diet, hobbies, personalities and family dynamics. Kelowna is Canada’s #1 summer resort destination and as a result homestays are heavily booked from July 1-August 15 every year and special requests cannot be guaranteed during that time. IGK homestays are unavailable for students booking part time classes in July and August. IGK's host families are all native English speakers unlike most families in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal etc., where there are many immigrants and non English speakers. Your English skills will improve much faster in Kelowna than in other cities as a result of this. Homestay Fees listed here are based on ages 19+. Supplements apply for for minors aged 12-18 (+$40 per week) as well as for special dietary requests such as vegetarian (+$100 per week). Extra night fee for ages 19+ is $50 (maximum 3 extra nights) not available in July August Extra night fee for ages 8 to 18 is $55 (maximum 3 extra nights) not available in July and August

Booking with us is really easy. You just have to go to the link of the school you are interested in. Where it says COURSE and then START, you select the dates you wish to study there. Afterwards, you select how many weeks you want to study.

You then select the course you wish to attend. You can add optional services, such as accommodation and airport transfer. If you would like to add these additional services, you need to go further down the page where you will find the section relating to ACCOMMODATION. You select the option of the type of accommodation you want (You do not have to select the dates here if they are the same as the course - they are automatically selected).
After the Accommodation, you have another option,  that of TRANSFER. This option allows you to book a transport that will pick you up at the airport and will take you to your residence or host family.

Once you have selected all these options, on your right hand side, you are going to see a summary of your reservation with all the information about the course and the accommodation, together with their prices. Also, the deposit you have to pay will be displayed there. You just have to press the Orange Button that says BOOK NOW and this will take you to another page to enter your personal details. When you are booking you only have to pay the little deposit. After that, we will contact the school and request your booking. When your booking is confirmed by the school or host, they will hold your place until the your booking balance is paid in full. The same applies for the accommodation. You can pay either with credit card, paypal account or bank transfer; as you prefer. This deposit you pay now will be discounted from the total price. The rest of the money will not have to be paid until 15 days before your course starts. In any case, you will be receiving emails about your deposit payments; and also, reminders about the rest of the money when it needs to be paid.

The start dates of intensive and standard language courses are generally flexible. If you have some basic knowledge of the language, you will be able to start any Monday of the year at almost any school. If you are a total beginner, courses usually start once or twice a month.
You should be aware that language schools have more students in July and August than during any other time of year, which means that course fees, housing prices and the overall cost of living are often more expensive during this time. If you would like to book a course in July or August, you should do so very early: schools have limited spots and might be booked well in advance for the high season. Your chances to get your preferred housing type are also greater if you book your course early. Housing options near the school are especially difficult to secure in the summer and tend to fill up quickly.
Language courses during the low season (September to June) are not only less expensive, but also have smaller classes. If you are able to wait to take your courses during this time you will pay less for your courses, and  you may even receive better housing, since demand is much lower. Please, review this information within the language course details on the language school page.
 You can find the availability status underneath each price on the school / host page. Nevertheless, if you submit a reservation request and your place is not available, the deposit paid will be 100% refunded.
