Holland College offers language training for international students

February 23, 2018

(L-R): International students Tex Liao and Danline Ruan, both from China, join their instructor Brent Stewart, and classmates Yajie Yu also from China and Amro Da’as from Jordan on a field trip to Confederation Centre Library.

Charlottetown, PE – Students interested in pursuing their studies at a Canadian post-secondary institution who do not have the necessary English language skills to be accepted can now take language training through Holland College’s English for Academic Purposes program to improve their skills.

The program, which is offered on the Prince of Wales Campus in Charlottetown, is extremely flexible, said Jolene Chan, Director of International Joint Venture at Holland College.

“Students may enter the program at any time, and the minimum enrolment commitment is only four weeks. Of course, the longer they study, the more progress they will make,” she said. “The class sizes are small, ensuring that each student benefits from direct interaction with the instructor and the other students.”

Certified ESL instructors using state-of-the-art computer labs and software provide the training. There is no International English Language Testing System requirement, but students must take a CanTEST, free of charge, to determine their level of proficiency in English before they enroll.
