How Long is It?
The course is 40 weeks long, with 40 assignments, and will take about five hours per week of your time. You may take a full year to complete the assignments if you fall behind. Try to finish one unit (lesson) a week, and you’ll be fine!
Grading and Marks
Quizzes will be graded automatically.
Assignments will be graded within 48 hours of submission (possibly longer if you submit over the weekend Canada time). You will be marked as if you were a Canadian junior high school student. The passing grade for this course is 70%. However, to prepare for university, students are encouraged to score at least 80%. You may redo quizzes and assignments as many times as you like.
Why Take this Course?
This course will help prepare you for high school or university in English-speaking countries, for university entrance exams in your own country, or even for writing logical English at work. The essays you will write are similar to those in junior high school in Canada, and have helped dozens of international students succeed at schools in North America.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will be awarded a certificate.
