Language Support is for English as an Additional Language (EAL) students who would like extra help during their studies to overcome language barriers and improve their English communication skills to be successful in their programs and in the workplace.
Language Support is FREE for students and involves weekly tutorials taught by faculty which cover a variety of topics, including learning strategies, study skills, focus on form, and extra practice time. Students in Language Support have an opportunity to build close relationships with their instructors and peers.
Language Support will also soon offer online materials for students who want to build up their English communication skills on their own.
Language Support also has a positive impact on EAL students’ success in COMM classes, normally students’ most language focused class. Success in COMM often translates into success in other courses.
