ADMINISTRATION & STAFF

We are committed to providing quality education and services to our students. We strive to create an environment for learning.

 Student Services will help you with such things as setting up a bank account, obtaining a bus pass, culture adjustment, housing, or just talking with you. 

FACULTY

Faculty members are committed to receiving ongoing training and endeavoring to fine-tune and improve their teaching approach. 

The goal of our faculty is to offer instruction in the most effective and efficient methods.  We measure success by the students learning outcome.

Our communicative approach to learning provides students with opportunities to practice all aspects of language through regular interaction with a variety of activities


GUIDING PHILOSOPHY
 
The need to balance tuition costs with high quality education requires every Albert Career School employee to continually educate themselves on the latest and most effective teaching methods and business processes. 

At Albert Career School, all students are treated as highly valued customers and teaching them is defined as “job one”. 

We believe that second language acquisition in the classroom is best when the learning environment is positive, where stress is managed, and where the atmosphere is nurturing, challenging and motivating.
