"(Studying at) EESE gave me the confidence to apply for a promotion. I got it!"
"I can skim and scan, read documents and understand what the main points are and how to respond to them."
Success in oral workplace communication requires accuracy, fluency and cultural appropriateness. In our Speaking Skills course, students learn and practise the correct and polite language used in common workplace contexts.
Communication on the job requires the ability to inform, train, persuade, entertain or sell to others. This can be stressful! In our Presentation Skills course, students learn the key skills required to plan and structure effective presentations and deliver them clearly, engagingly and confidently.
The ability to speak clearly is crucial to effective communication in the workplace and daily life. Students in our Pronunciation Skills courses learn the fundamentals of the Canadian English sound system.
Effective writing skills are critical for immigrant professionals working in a business environment or attempting to enter the Canadian professional workforce for the first time.
Graduates of our Writing Skills course set and develop their personal writing goals with the guidance and support of a trained ESL teacher, known as a facilitator, in our self-guided Returning Writing program.

Two languages open every door along the way."
