The aim of the Language Centre is to enable students to function well in their second language as officers of the Canadian Armed Forces.
Every effort is made to ensure that students become bilingual in the shortest possible time. Classes are small, with a maximum of 10 students. Five periods, each lasting 50 minutes, are timetabled for each week of the academic year. The learning process is given a practical aspect by the frequent use of technology. Classroom activities are designed to promote a high level of participation by the student. Students who have not reached the appropriate fluency level by the end of their second year take an intensive summer course of 250 hours.
Official testing is granted when students reach an acceptable level; the tests determine whether they have achieved a satisfactory rate of progress, they also indicate their actual level via a linguistic profile.
