Employment Potential

Many EAL (English as an Additional Language) students have found that the English programs at the Language Training Centre have opened up employment opportunities for them.

Others have gone on to continue their studies in college or university programs. Perhaps the most widespread benefit for EAL students has been their increased ability to communicate effectively in the community.
