The Centre for Professional Language Standards was created to standardize language and communication evaluation for EFL students.
Our mission is to create systems of language learning and assessment to be used on a global scale to normalize how learners are evaluated and target what they are required to demonstrate.
One of the problems educators and employers face is how to gauge whether a student with high marks really can communicate better than a student that scored lower. A teacher in school “A” may mark differently that a teacher in school “B”. This leads to uncertain student outcomes.
Our vision is to give consistent evaluation to all learners. We help build a bridge between schools and hotels, delivering consistent and transparent evaluation standards. This creates a level of trust, where schools and potential employers can feel secure in the knowledge that all students involved in 3A certification programs have been given the same chance to succeed, and variables in how they are marked have been removed.
“Learn What You Live”– Our curriculum teaches English as it is used, in real life, for best retention results.
We have assembled professionals from around Canada to help us evaluate our students and instructors. Learn More

As Co-founder of 3A English, James has been hard at work creating content to share his passion with industry learners. Currently, James is living with his family in Squamish, Canada.
