The English Language Program (ELP) loves to stay in touch with former students. You will always be part of our community — long after you leave! Please tell us about your experiences at the ELP by writing a testimonial, or by writing a short article for @elp, our student magazine. Be sure to tell us where you are, what you are doing and if you’d like to hear from us regularly.
"I tried to be active and use all the resources available to me at the ELP. I am thankful I used these resources, like volunteering—it got me over the nerves of speaking English and encouraged me to speak with Canadians."
-David Quispe of Ecuador
"I think being in a multicultural city is the best place to study. We are all trying to learn about each other. I think this is the advantage. I've learned so much about other cultures."
-Hatice Korkulu of Turkey
"The days that I spent at the ELP made me a more interactive person. Now I feel that my way of thinking has changed dramatically and positively. I feel that everything I am interested in doing is a possibility and it deserves to be pursued."
