CGA’s ESOL classes are a customized pathway for ambitious students to accelerate academic English ability more quickly than traditional ESOL classes.

What is the ESOL program?

CGA’s ESOL classes are a customised pathway for ambitious students to accelerate academic English ability more quickly than traditional ESOL classes. The course content has been structured to combine practical every-day English with Academic English that will improve students’ performance in an English speaking classroom.

We use Pearson’s Wider World book series, designed for virtual learners, as well as the Pearson English Portal specifically designed for teaching ESOL online.  The platform interface is translated into dozens of languages, making it easy for students and parents to understand.


Who is the ESOL program for?

All students must complete a Pearson Versant English Placement Test as part of their application. Students' scores on Versant will determine their eligibility for the program as well as their level placement if accepted.

ESOL Summer Program

Crimson Global Academy's ESOL Summer Program is a unique 10-week course tailored for students to enhance their English skills through literature exploration. Designed to complement and enrich the academic experience, it prepares students for success in the upcoming academic year.

Ideal as both a standalone course and a pathway for those planning to enroll in CGA's ESOL classes in September, the program offers vital academic enrichment and skill development opportunities.


When can I join the ESOL program?

The ESOL program runs throughout the academic year from September to May.  Students are allowed to join ESOL classes anytime throughout the academic year as long as their English level test places them appropriately into one of our available classes.

Each level meets for three hours per week with the teacher in a live classroom setting. Additionally, students are expected to complete three hours of homework per week.

“Crimson Global Academy is the place to be if you’re an ambitious student and want to learn from world class teachers in an interactive environment.

My biggest expectation with CGA was that the classes would be high quality - it's definitely met up with that expectation. And the best part? It’s online and you can be anywhere in the world.”
