1. Our ESL School Teachers Have College and University Degrees

In Canada, teachers need professional certification to teach ESL. These standards include ‘Teachers of English as a Second Language’ certification (TESL). At CultureWorks, teachers have TESL certification and more.

Every CultureWorks teacher has at least one university degree. We only hire highly-qualified English experts! They know how to help you learn the language skills you need to attend English universities and colleges, because they did it themselves.

Some of your best friends at CultureWorks might be your teachers! That’s because our teachers are very professional, but still love to have fun. They know ESL school is about more than hard work. It’s also about having adventures and making friends from all over the world.

Teachers want to work here because they love to meet and help ESL students like you. They are friendly, patient, and always happy to answer a question or share a laugh.
