Eight Levels of English Skills Development

Fleming's multi-level English language development program ensures that you learn in small groups with classmates who are at a similar level to your own. The level of entry is determined through submission of external test scores and/or Fleming's assessment test. The program is taught exclusively by TESL certified teachers. Each level focuses on progression in reading comprehension, academic writing, speaking and listening, vocabulary, and pronunciation skills.

Learning Beyond the Classroom

Regular field trips help you practice your language skills outside of the classroom in specific situations, become familiar with Canadian culture and explore the natural environment of the Kawartha region.

Private Weekly Tutoring

30 minutes with a private tutor every week will help you with any challenges. It is included in your tuition fees.

Frequent Start Dates

This program offers start dates at the beginning of each semester as well as mid-semester year-round.

Successful completion of Level 8 will give you direct entry into most Fleming College post-secondary programs, provided you meet the program-specific academic requirements. No additional IELTS or TOEFL testing will be required.

In addition to start dates at the beginning of each semester, this program also offers start dates mid-semester under program code ELB-2.

We recommend that new students take our ELB placement test on campus. Applicants may also provide a recent IELTS, TOEFL or Duolingo score upon admission and be placed directly into an ELB level. For maximum learning, students will be placed in the ELB level that corresponds to their lowest individual skill score or, where appropriate, according to the level the program believes is most suitable, regardless of IELTS, TOEFL or Duolingo results.

ELB Starting Level IELTS TOEFL (IBT) Duolingo
1 2.0 0-9 0-25
2 2.5 10-18 30-40
3 3.0 19-25 45-50
4 3.5 26-30 55-60
5 4.0 31-39 65-70
6 4.5 40-49 75-80
7 5.0 50-61 85-90
8 5.5 62-79 95-100

Note: The ELB Program reserves the right to place a student according to the level the program believes is appropriate for maximum learning, regardless of English proficiency results.
