Armed with globe-spanning lexicons containing two of the world's most popular languages, the communication conveyors at the International Language Schools of Canada's Toronto campus untie non-native tongues with their evening foreign-language courses. Meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the small group sessions venture through transcontinental conjugations in French, English, and Spanish. Instead of relying on rote memorization, ILSC's instructors build understanding through participatory communication exercises, including interpersonal conversation and trust falls into waiting dictionaries. Courses arm wayfarers with elocutionary secret weapons, allowing them to order english muffins in style, realize a dream of becoming a Real Madrid announcer, or explain the concept of restraining orders to amorous French skunks. Students looking to formally assert their dominance of English can take the test preparation course for the IELTS, TOEFL, and TOEIC exams. ILSC's beginner to advanced offerings vary between languages and session dates, and Groupon holders are encouraged to check ILSC's schedule before booking tickets to Togo or agreeing to enter a rap battle against Mr. Bean.
