Overall teacher performance versus student feedback:
FROM INDUSTRY CANADA
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated and valued the support and expertise of you, Kaitlin and the teachers you assigned to me earlier this year. As you know, I scored wonderfully on my three B exams. I was only off my C levels in the written tests by 4 and 5 points! And it was the very first time I took these tests!!!
Your teachers are amazing. Each one has their own unique strengths -- from being a "grammar master" to a "conversation king." Because of their styles, I will never forget words like "dorénavant", "désormais" or terms such as "faire en sorte que"! I will especially never forget that "the problem" in french is masculine and "the solution" is feminine. Of course, me being a woman has a little bit to do with that.) I also greatly appreciated your efforts to schedule me with the teachers I found to be a good fit for my learning style.
Thank you so much for helping me with my achievement. I will most definitely contact you for the next stage in my language learning and when I have to face the testing to score Cs!!
I had the privilege to participate in one-on-one French language training with professors of Quick Learning Group Inc. Through regular sessions over a period of approximately 160 hours, I managed to exceed the requirements of my position as well as my own expectations by achieving exemptions in both the written and oral interaction tests. What I truly appreciated were the diverse backgrounds and approaches of the various members of Silas Lenos' team, as well as their positive encouragement and assistance. K.

FROM SERVICES PARTAGES, CANADA,MANJUSTRI WELIKALA,
Early this year, I attended classes at Quick Learning Group, for a few months. I was preparing for the French Oral Test, to obtain my level CBC. First and foremost let me mentioned; my stay at New Hope was both enjoyable and productive. Firstly because I managed to obtained the levels required, and also because I enjoyed tremendously my time at the school. The first major change I noticed was the willingness of the school administration to create a schedule appropriate for the individual student concerned. This enabled me to follow a study program designed according to my needs specifically. Secondly, I noticed that all the Professors were
quite up-to-date with not only the knowledge and methods of teaching, but also with the expectations of the examiners for different grading levels. Therefore, they were able to tailor the study program according to the level required by the particular student. Last, but not least; let me mentioned of my impressions of the teachers I met at the school. I always felt that they were genuinely interested in my success and they were not there merely to cover the number of hours. All in all, it was a quite fruitful and enjoyable learning experience.
MIKE FROM TRANSPORT CANADA , MIKE BOUCHARD,
When I was directed to QUICK LEARNING GROUP INC from my official languages department at Transport Canada, I felt that this was my last chance to achieve a level B for oral communication in French. I had taken the test twice before and both times, I was disappointed in only receiving a level A.
From the very first session with QUICK LEARNING GROUP INC, I was extremely impressed with the obvious excitement and charisma that the Director of the school, Silas Leno, displayed as well as the encouraging words and strategies that he had for me. The teachers assigned to my training quickly identified my
weaknesses and strengths; they were able to provide me with strategies to combat the weaknesses and to enhance my strengths in order to find success in my next exam.
By the final week of my training, my confidence level with French conversation had become stronger than I had ever imagined. In fact, I looked forward to my final sessions so that I could learn as much as I could before my training period was complete. Since I had been treated with such respect by the teachers, I believe that I worked extra hard to impress them.
The final day of my training and the day before my exam the Director, Silas, made sure that I looked at the exam as a celebration of my new-found knowledge and he gave me even more strategies to think about to feel comfortable in the exam. The day of the exam, one of the teachers who I spent the most time with, Albert, made every effort to make sure that I was comfortable and ready to take the test. He met me in the morning to converse with me and get my language motor running. He even walked me to the testing center and waited with me before the examiner called me in. This type of support is really above and beyond the call of duty, so I was very appreciative.
When I received the results and achieved Level B, I couldn‟t wait to send the news to Silas and Albert at QUICK LEARNING GROUP INC as I knew they were waiting as I was for these results.
I know that without a doubt, QUICK LEARNING GROUP INC provided me with everything that I needed to achieve my goal.
NICOLE FROM THE CORRECTIONAL SERVICES NICOLE ALLEGRI
Thank you very much for the opportunity to have learned at your school. It was a wonderful experience for me and although I would like to stay and learn more from my teacher, I also feel like I am in a great position to start group with the foundation I have learned at your school.
Being a student at the Quick Learning Group was a wonderful experience. Despite only being at the school for four weeks I learned a tremendous amount that will form the foundation for my further group instruction. The school was very professional and the facilities were comfortable. I have the most to say about my instructor who was absolutely amazing! She had exceptional qualifications and experience as a French grade school teacher. Within a few days she understood my learning style and adapted her teaching methods to correspond. I was amazed at how adept my instructor was at understanding my learning style and completely answering all of my questions. I will be recommending this school to my colleagues.

« Après seulement un mois d‟apprentissage intensif de langue anglaise au sein de Quick Learning Group Inc, j‟ai pu décrocher mon niveau C en interaction orale. Auparavant, j‟ai passé neuf mois dans une autre école de formation linguistique.
Selon ma propre expérience, je crois fortement que votre approche qui, en plus d‟être une approche gagnante, était très appropriée à mon apprentissage. D‟abord, il y a l‟importance que vous accordez au côté humain dans votre milieu de travail. C‟est ce que j‟ai pu constater chez vous en personne, chez mes professeurs et chez vos collaborateurs. Dans le même ordre d‟idées, il y avait également les conseils psychopédagogiques prodigués par mes deux professeurs et par vous-même. Ces conseils consistaient à m‟aider à reprendre confiance en mes capacités. Je saisis ici l‟occasion pour remercier de façon
particulière mes deux professeurs qui m‟ont accompagné durant cette expérience et les conseils qu‟ils n‟ont cessés de m‟offrir. Le deuxième élément que j‟aimerais souligner est l‟autonomie. En fait, vous n‟avez ménagé aucun effort pour mettre à ma disposition le matériel pédagogique nécessaire qui m‟a donné une grande liberté dans mon apprentissage. Quant au dernier élément que j‟aimerais mentionner est celui de la disponibilité et de l‟écoute. En effet, vous étiez toujours présent quand j‟avais besoin de vous. Vous avez aussi répondu favorablement à mes besoins d‟apprentissage.
Ce sont là quelques éléments qui vous distinguent et qui vous procurent un avantage compétitif par rapport aux autres écoles de formation linguistique.
Merci encore pour toute l‟équipe l‟École le Nouvel Espoir.

You created a plan that helped me quickly succeed in raising my oral interaction in French to the level I required.

“During my language training, I had the opportunity to study at a number of schools, but found that QUICK LEARNING GROUP INC was the only school capable of meeting my personal language goals. The instructors were quick to adapt to my learning needs and worked hard to develop a customized learning plan tailored to my linguistic level and learning style. The instructors were experienced, professional and multi-faceted in their approach to language learning. Mr. Leno and his colleagues not only understood the language but the difficulties in adult second
language acquisition, which I believe is crucial in overcoming the seemingly insurmountable obstacles of learning a second language. In addition, the instructors went far beyond the requirements of the established contract in order to assist me in obtaining my objective. I personally felt that my goals and personal sense of accomplishment were of the highest importance to the school. I would strongly recommend, without hesitation, ELSE to any individual or organization.”
