ILSC is very pleased to announce that ILSC-Brisbane has received their Quality Endorsement following a Quality Assurance Review with one of Australia’s leading English Language Teaching (ELT) accreditation bodies, NEAS (National ELT Accreditation Scheme).

The school performed well in all areas, with a number of key strengths identified by NEAS:

  • A strong English Only Policy
  • Spacious and well equipped campus facilities which allow students to work, network and relax
  • An effective open door policy which welcomes meaningful interactions between staff and students

Following the focus groups, NEAS reported, “it is clear from the feedback that the centre fosters a caring, engaging and diverse atmosphere with an extraordinary range of opportunities to engage with the English language.”

Indo-Canadian Ice-Hockey in the Himalays, an ILSC CSR Project

January 18,2015

In January, ILSC once again took part in an exciting community development project we've been involved with for the past three years: supporting Ice-hockey in the Himalayas!  In the remote region of Leh Ladakh, which sits at 11,000 feet (3,400 m) above sea level, the winters are very cold, and the children there have little to do during the cold season; but about a decade ago, they started playing ice-hockey.

The only challenge for the community is that they had very little ice-hockey equipment, but for the past few years, many of ILSC's campuses have coordinated to donate used ice-hockey equipment to the Leh community, and with some help from the Canadian High Commission we were able to deliver over 1000 pieces of equipment to this remote region this year.

This January, ILSC-Sydney Director, Jason Flaming, ILSC-New Delhi Director, Mark Branov, and ILSC's Chairman and Founder, Paul Zysman were in Leh to take part in their annual ice-hockey tournament which included teams from Germany, the UK, Finland, Canada, Singapore, China and the USA.

Study and Work at Greystone College Canada

October 15,2014

Canadian Language Schools have been affected by some regulation changes this year. One of the biggest has been the end to Language Study and Work programs, which have been quite popular for many of students at our ILSC Canada locations. Although we can no longer offer work and language study programs at ILSC Language Schools, we wanted to share some exciting new program developments at Greystone College, which is part of the ILSC Education Group, and has locations in Vancouver and Toronto.

One of the biggest has been the end to Language Study and Work programs, which have been quite popular for many of students at our ILSC Canada locations. Although we can no longer offer work and language study programs at ILSC Language Schools, we wanted to share some exciting new program developments at Greystone College, which is part of the ILSC Education Group, and has locations in Vancouver and Toronto.

One regulation change that will benefit international students attending designated colleges in Canada is that programs longer than 6 months automatically provide students the right to work up to 20 hrs per week off-campus along with their study visa.

Greystone College has also developed some new co-operative education programs which might suit ILSC students who meet the English language level requirements for entry (Beginner 4 for Greystone's new Customer Service Co-op up to Advanced 1 for our Diploma in Business Administration Co-op).  Programs at Greystone College offer career training that will help you reach future work and study goals. While English language is not a focus of these programs, you'll discover that you'll build industry-specific English vocabulary (for Business and/or Tourism & Hospitality), while your co-op position will immerse you in your study topic and in English as you communicate with Canadian colleages and customers.

Check out our full list of college program offerings on the Greystone College website, and see if a Career training program is right for you.

ILSC-New Delhi's Multi-cultural event was organized to celebrate the diversity along with recognizing, understanding and appreciating differences. The multi-cultural event was filled with inspiring performances, provocative thought, self – reflection and celebration of our multi-dimensional identities.

It was a daylong event for students that focused on the strong desire to greater understanding and appreciation of multiculturalism. The event included around 20 countries. Students were encouraged to reflect their nationality in different forms like food, dance, music, costumes etc. During the event, the event hall buzzed with conversations and great enthusiasm to know more about each participating country.

We hope to help empower the ILSC community to develop authentic relationships.
