Program Information

English Communication Program - Fall 2017 - English in the City (two series of classes)

About the ECP

CIE's English Communication Program (ECP) is a non-credit program that gives U of T students who speak English as a second language the opportunity to further develop their communication skills in English, gain insight into Canadian culture and life at U of T, and share cross-cultural experiences.

Classes are facilitated by volunteers with teaching, cross-cultural, and international experience.

Please take note of the start date, time and duration of the class series you are interested in (some classes start in a different week or end at different times due to availability of instructors).

Most classes take place at CIE (Cumberland House, 33 St. George St.) except for classes that explore off site.


English in the City (EC1 or EC2)
Meet in different neighbourhoods and city spots each week to walk, tour, talk and take photos. Practise English in real-life situations and chat about topics such as social issues, popular culture, entertainment, media, fashion, and cultural differences.  Enhance your communication skills, share cross-cultural experiences, gain unique insights into Canadian culture, and explore what's best about Toronto.  We will be doing some walking, so dress comfortably.  Expect to spend about $10.00 per class on city transportation, coffee or lunch. Suggestions are welcome! 

Pick one of the two series of classes:
EC1 on Wednesdays from 1:00pm to 3:00pm starting September 27 for ten weeks OR
EC2 on Fridays from 10:00am to 12:30pm starting October 6 for eight weeks

Attendance policy
Due to the high demand for our classes and out of respect for the many students who wish to take our classes but cannot get in, we have implemented the following attendance policy:
If you miss two sessions without notifying your instructor or the ECP office you will be dropped from the class and a student from the waiting list will be admitted in your place.

Refund policy
No refunds will be given after the second scheduled class, or due to class cancellation.
Please also note that refunds are only processed once per month.

If you are a new Book IT user, you are advised to register with the system in advance of the registration. Your UTORid and password are required to use the system.

If you have an accessibility requirement or special circumstance and would prefer to register in person, please contact our office at 416-946-7567 and we will do our best to accommodate you.
