Summer Language Program

Humber’s Summer Language Program provides students an engaging and immersive Canadian cultural experience in an English speaking environment. Classes take place in historic cottages that have been retrofitted with state-of-the-art classroom equipment and students live in a modern residence at the Lakeshore campus, on the shores of Lake Ontario during the beautiful summer season.
