TOEFL Prep. Program
TOEFL is one of the most popular English as a Second Language tests in North America and is required by any Canadian University to those who are not native English speakers. The test is a way for universities to assess whether or not an applicant’s English skills are good enough to attend a university program taught and tested in the language.
With that in mind, Cornerstone Academic College’s designed its “TOEFL Preparation” program to help students prepare for the test. We recommend students participate in this full-time program for 12 weeks. Still, if preferred, students can study for 4 or even 8 weeks, according to his/her needs. Throughout the program, students are exposed to and familiarized with the 4 sections of the test; reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Students are also introduced to test taking strategies and time management skills. Our experienced instructors focus on the specific areas where student needs improvement ensuring the test taking experience to be less of a stressful endeavor.
College Entrance Exam Preparation Program
Along with their TOEFL score, any international student- or even Canadian student, needs to go through a college entrance English exam before being accepted into any university program in Canada.

There’s only one thing Canadians seem to love as much as their ice hockey and that’s Tim Hortons. The Canadian franchise known for its coffee and doughnuts is something we are proud of and are almost obsessed with. The coffee shop can literally be found at every corner of any busy area of the country and surprisingly still very frequently with quite a line-up, especially in the morning.
The company was created in 1964 by Canadian hockey player Tim Horton and operates more than 3 thousand stores spread from coast to coast. Prices are extremely reasonable and any visitor looking for a true Canadian winter experience must try the famous “Extra Large Double Double”, one of the best-selling coffees in the country! As for the doughnuts, they vary according to each season but the “Double Chocolate Dip” is a safe, tasty bet.
