Our Way


C.S.L.I. has provided language programs to several Colleges and Universities in Canada since 1978, and to High School students since 1997. Our main goal is to improve students’ language skills and self-confidence abroad while obtaining a unique first-hand look at the culture, and people of the places they are visiting. Our tours consist of at least eight (8) students and a teacher.

The students stay with trusted families, all of which have had background checks by Police, the international schools, and by us at C.S.L.I. We accommodate between two (2) and four (4) students per family, allowing students to also choose their roommates, and make new travel buddies. A C.S.L.I. representative is always present during a trip, to offer assistance, or to handle emergencies in person immediately as needed, and to guide the tour along. Local families stay in contact with the representative to ensure safety, while families at home may also reach the representative by a direct phone line 24/7.

Our objective is to improve students’ language skills and self-confidence abroad while obtaining a unique, first-hand, inside-look at the cultures and peoples of the magnificent places they visit.

The cost of the trip for any organizing teacher(s) traveling is complimentary, and we furnish the cost for any T.O.C. if needed.

We visit your classrooms with our video presentation and provide pamphlets for students to bring home. Afterwards, we arrange an informational parent meeting for those interested in learning more about our program. At that meeting, we provide forms for the registration process.

C.S.L.I. makes all the necessary arrangements for the trip - Airline tickets, visas, consent forms, and payment forms. This alleviates the headaches for trip organizers, teachers, and parents. Our years of experience will make your trip more enjoyable, giving you time to truly explore the wonders abroad. Let’s get started!
