A recent survey from Languages Canada reveals that Canada witnessed a decline in English Language Teaching enrolments in 2015. According to the research, the number of students studying English in Canada was reduced from 137,416 in 2014 to 133,910 in 2015. These results represent an overall drop of 6.31% over the four years from 2012 to 2015. “International researchers have remarked that the global language travel sector growth is slowing down. This year’s annual survey report confirms the predictions,” said Languages Canada Executive Director Gonzalo Peralta. “However, it is clear now that Canada’s language education sector is not simply slowing in growth, it is underperforming. Not only have we failed to keep pace, we have actually shrunk.”
