Explore English Online Program


The Explore English Online program is a 5-week program which puts language learning and practice in the context of UBC’s vision of “inspiring people, ideas, and actions for a better world.” This program is open to domestic and international students who have an elementary to advanced level of English, and are at least 19 years old.

The Explore English Online program is a learner-centered integrated skills program, focused primarily on speaking fluency and accuracy. Classes provide language instruction and practice along with opportunities to explore global topics through collaborative group work, facilitated discussions, and interaction with guest speakers. Virtual classroom lessons use the same curriculum as the on-campus program, and are guided by experienced ELI instructors.
