Academic Preparation is Important
In North America there is a very large percentage of first year college and university drop-outs and failures.
Imagine spending years to finish high school - saving money for tuition, books, accommodation and travel - then after starting your college you can not keep up with the reading, do not understand the text, can not answer questions in class, can not keep up or learn at the same speed as the class or pass the tests. You have to stop and are left with nothing and have to answer the questions about what happened in college for years.
In North America the transition from high school to college is very difficult for most students.
Many Canadian, American and international students are shocked by the higher demands and higher expectations of college professors.The usual process of just being promoted in high school does not happen in top tier colleges.
There are NO "safety nets" - NO "no-one left behind programs" - NO "participation is just as important programs" in top tier colleges.
Some of the knowledge and skills required for college success include: advanced writing; public speaking; computer literacy; computer applications and user skills; research skills; study skills; information management; time management; advanced communication skills; basic history; current events; international, national and regional economic and political news.
By taking English Language and Academic Preparation for university and college classes, you can make the transition seamless by going to college with the basic knowledge and study skills the college and university professors expect.
People from all over the world travel to North America to study or make new lives here.
To make that transition as quick and easy as possible, ESL in Canada offers a range of specialized programs and services for Canadians and newcomers who need study and language skills for college and university.
