Cheryl WebberCollege of the Rockies, a publicly funded, provincially recognized community college, is located in the Rocky Mountain resort region of southern British Columbia, Canada. The College is in the centre of a world-famous outdoor recreation and vacation environment offering incredible scenery and unique outdoor activities year round including famous hot springs resorts, beautiful forests for hiking and observing wildlife, and some of Canada's finest skiing/snowboarding areas. All with no crowds! The College of the Rockies' main campus is in the city of Cranbrook, an affordable and very friendly modern small city with a strong economy and a great relaxed lifestyle. It is located a one hour drive from the United States border and a three hour drive from scenic Banff. Cranbrook's airport has daily direct flights from Vancouver (80 minutes) and Calgary (40 minutes) via Air Canada.

Founded in 1975 with major expansions completed in 2008 and 2010, College of the Rockies' facilities are bright, modern and comfortable. On-campus recreation includes an indoor climbing wall, gymnasium, outdoor track and field, fitness room and forest trails. A cafeteria, bookstore, library, and wireless internet are also available on campus. Services for international students include a Recreation Coordinator, and an international office offering free phone calls home and assistance with visas, medical insurance and homestay.

Over 3000 Canadian students and 220 international students attend College of the Rockies to benefit from very small class sizes and a highly qualified teaching staff dedicated to giving each student personal attention. With an average class size of only 15 students in our ESL program, our instructors know each student by name and students can be comfortable asking questions in class, even in our university level courses. College of the Rockies offers outstanding educational value with some of the most affordable tuition fees and living costs in Canada. ESL students have the opportunity to learn English quickly in a mainly English speaking College and city (over 95% of the population here has English as their first language)

The ESL program schedule consists of about 22 hours per week of classes offered in the mornings and afternoons on weekdays. Courses are integrated to include all areas of language (grammar, writing, reading, listening and speaking). Classes are relaxed and teachers encourage student interaction in all classes. The program is multi-level. Students who complete the ESL program may take university level courses offered at the College and may proceed to high school level English (English 80 and English 90) offered here.
