Formations Linguistiques/ESL

Seneca College - Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The English Language Institute (ELI) at Seneca College is an intensive full-time ESL program designed for international students who want to improve their English language skills for personal, academic or professional reasons. The program's computer labs make extensive use of CAN-8 to enhance the language learning experience for hundreds of students every semester. CAN-8 adds hours of customized out-of class practice that helps ELI students improve essential language skills, including grammar and vocabulary development, in a safe, non-threatening, learner-centred environment. In class, CAN-8 is an effective support to ELI faculty in curriculum delivery, allowing professors to easily develop meaningful and relevant activities for students. The software is also invaluable for in and out of class assessments.
