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.

Experience the Cultural Capital of Canada

Language instruction in context

Language textbooks can only take you so far. Embrace the language you’re learning by getting out into the culturally and linguistically diverse city of Montreal, where you’ll get the opportunity to put what you’ve learned into practice in the city’s shops, museums and cafes and communicate with real people in everyday settings.

One-of-a-kind experience, one-of-a-kind city

As Canada’s cultural capital, Montreal is the place to connect with art, music and world-class festivals. Enjoy the perks of big city living with all the charm of a small community in the safest major city in North America. In Montreal, you'll find an international airport 20 minutes from downtown, a beautiful park in every neighbourhood, old-meets-new architecture, an abundance of street art and a distinctive, world-famous culinary scene.

A French or English Course That Speaks to Your Needs

Who should participate in Explore 15?

Explore 15 is designed for groups of all sizes and ages who want to reinforce their study of English and/or French by immersing themselves in a bilingual Canadian environment. The program is designed for everyone from high school and university students to groups of friends who want to learn and grow together.

Stop studying and start speaking

Explore 15 takes students out of the classroom and into the real world. In this program, which is made up of 15 lesson blocks per week, students participate in interactive activities that rely on and enhance their existing knowledge of English and/or French.

Live alongside native English or French speakers

Many experts agree that immersion is the best (and fastest) way to truly master a language—so what are you waiting for? 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

Spend your summers soaking up the culture and languages of Montreal and become bilingual (or even trilingual!) while having the time of your life. Discover the life-changing effects of bilingualism—from new travel experiences and relationships to exciting career and education opportunities.

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—Explore 15 is offered at all levels, from beginner to advanced! To determine your group’s 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 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 Explore 15 program was designed with groups who want to utilize their summer or winter school breaks in mind, groups can be accommodated at any time of the year.

Is it possible to only sign up for one week of Explore 15?

Certainly! Given that Explore 15 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 Homestay page to answer any questions you may have about accommodations.
