Welcome to the Real Institute

We are a leader in high-quality English language programming for international learners from different backgrounds and levels of proficiency.

Our English as an Additional Language programming has been developed by a team of exceptional ESL instructors, and has helped hundreds of international students to effectively improve their English language proficiency and confidence.  We emphasize the development of our students’ reading, writing, listening and speaking ability, while building the academic skills needed to succeed at a Canadian university.

The Real Institute provides an ideal starting point for ESL students to achieve academic and personal success, offering a direct pathway to admission into Ryerson University’s undergraduate programs through the ESL Foundation Program and English Boost.
