Learn Faster With Kaizen Connect®

This 3 phase cycle is applied continuously to your language learning:

P1: Production

Instructors use a range of techniques to draw and facilitate production from learners.  Linguistic raw data, taken from actual speech, is carefully recorded in their Student Learning File.

P2: Insight

The collected information is reviewed and assessed by our Academic Team - Instructors, Academic Liaison & Academic Coordinator - in order to assure that each learner is progressing at an optimal pace.

P3: Elevation

Each student's Learning Plan is then adjusted as needed, taking the Academic Team's analysis into account. Learners are made aware of their biggest challenges and advised on how to take their speaking skills up to the next level.

Kaizen Connect® is an agile learning system developed and used by E-QIP for more than a decade. This framework is designed exclusively for learning a new language, with one central purpose: to help you learn faster.

Embrace Your Multilingualism in Canada’s Most Bilingual City

Instruction that gets results

Mornings in the Experience 30 program are spent at the E-QIP campus, where you’ll find yourself immersed in your target language with an instructor who’s been trained in our proven teaching framework, Kaizen Connect, which emphasizes continuous improvement.

Take your learning onto the streets of Montreal

Spend your afternoons communicating with locals in shops, museums, restaurants and more, all under the guidance of one of E-QIP’s expertly trained instructors. Come and learn in one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse cities in North America, where it’s not uncommon to hear people alternate seamlessly between French and English in a single interaction.

Explore 15 places you right in the thick of a dynamic English (and French) speaking city, with the option to stay with one of many Canadian families who are waiting to welcome you into their homes and give you a taste of their language and culture.

Enjoy the lifelong benefits of multilingualism

Humanistic Curriculum

Learning a language is more than just an academic pursuit; language touches all aspects of our lives, and as such, we recognize the importance of providing an experience that’s focused on growing, rather than merely reaching benchmarks. Our humanistic approach to learning allows you to truly connect with your target language and learn it more deeply.

Instructor Training

Instructors assume many roles in a learner’s journey—from trainer and coach to cheerleader and mentor. The growth and success of our teachers is just as important to us as our students; we nurture them so that they can nurture you and your language development.

Gifted Instructors

Instructors who foster a supportive, inspiring learning environment are equally as important as the content of the lessons themselves. We exclusively seek instructors who are positive, respectful and open-minded so that you feel welcome and are comfortable enough to let yourself share and grow alongside them.

Student Files

Our learning file system allows teachers to collaborate with each other (and with you!) on your learning by tracking and recording your progress in detail during and after every class. This guarantees that you always receive a class that is tailored to your abilities and can therefore experience constant improvement.

Our PROmise

At E-QIP, our core values—positivity, respectfulness and open-mindedness—shape every aspect of how we run our school. To ensure an experience that is positive, respectful and open-minded, we PROmise that throughout your learning journey, E-QIP and its team of instructors will remain:


Our instructors, administrators and curriculum developers are the best at what they do, and our trademark teaching framework, Kaizen Connect®, enables them to curate and deliver learning experiences that are transformative, effective and infused with joy.

Our professionalism doesn’t stop at the classroom. Whether you’ve undertaken your language learning journey as a workplace requirement or with the intention of shifting into an entirely new role or career, we're dedicated to helping you achieve the transition you’re after.


Our monthly student progress reports, leading-edge teaching framework, Kaizen Connect®—which empowers our students to learn from their own mistakes—and ample opportunities for students to both provide and receive feedback enable us to remain accountable to those whose opinions matter the most: our students. If you’re putting in the work, you will make progress—that’s a guarantee, and the system we’ve put in place ensures that this remains true.


E-QIP is where like-minded growth seekers and global citizens converge to reap the benefits that multilingualism has to offer, and their ambition is what makes motivating our students the easiest part of the job for any E-QIP teacher. In our experience, the best way to foster growth in our students and fuel the passion that already exists within them is through encouragement and support, which we deliver through open lines of communication between students and instructors and our team of helpful, empathetic support staff members.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this program offered at my level?

Yes—Experience 30 is offered at all levels, from beginner to advanced! To determine your level(s), we’ll ask you to complete a brief interview process. Upon completion of this assessment, we’ll get in touch to let you know which level we’ve placed you at. See the bottom of our Academics page for a breakdown of the language levels E-QIP uses.

When should I complete my placement interview?

You’ll be asked to complete an assessment upon registration, whenever that may be. Given that language levels can change over time, it’s possible that you may be re-evaluated upon your arrival in Canada, depending on how much time has passed.

Can I start at any time?

Yes! While the Experience 30 program was designed with groups who want to utilize their summer or winter school breaks in mind, students can be accommodated at any time of the year.

Is it possible to only sign up for one week of Experience 30?

Certainly! Given that Experience 30 sessions last for one week, there’s no minimum number of weeks that you must register for.

Do I have to live with a homestay family?

Students aged 18 and above can either choose to live with a homestay family or rent a single room in a shared house. See the Accommodations page for further information.

Can I learn both English and French at the same time?

Anything is possible! Essentially, Experience 30 combines two E-QIP programs, Speak 15 and Explore 15. It’s totally doable to learn French in the mornings (Speak 15) and English in the afternoons (Explore 15). The feasibility of this option depends on your level in English and French; we generally recommend your weaker language for Speak 15 and your stronger language for Explore 15. Contact us to discuss your options!
