OLC programs help students from different cultural backgrounds who need help improving their language proficiency through theme classes on listening skills, debate discussion, academic writing, etc. My OLC tutor guided me in delivering effective and engaging presentations. Moreover, the OLC tutors and facilitators taught me critical thinking and analytical skills. The OLC fosters an atmosphere that provides students - especially international students - with a supportive small community that helps them feel accepted, and assists them in achieving their professional and educational objectives in Canada.
