This is what current and former students say about the Intensive English Language Program.
<p><span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 1.3em">Takeshi Uemura - Japan</span><br />Two years ago, I came here from a Japanese university. My major was English education and Linguistics; however, my English was terrible. At first I struggled and was scared of speaking English, especially with my host family. After a few months I had the chance to live with a different host family who always helped me to improve my English skills. In addition, I had good teachers in the IELP. They gave me countless suggestions and encouraged me. As a result, I had good time at Brock University. After returning to Japan, I missed my Canadian family and teachers. Because I was so impressed with their warm hearts and they gave me a chance to change myself. After I left Canada, I had to decide what I should do in the future. At that time, I got a good job offer; however, I chose to come back to Canada! Because everything about me had changed and this had started there, I thought it was the best choice for me. Now, I am here, at Brock again! I have a dream; I would never think it possible if I were not here. I would like to be an ESL teacher in the future because my IELP teachers were so kind and supported me even though they were busy. After finishing the IELP, I will take the TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) course at Brock University! I have a lot of international friends and good teachers, so I am very happy to be here! The IELP has given me a good opportunity to study a lot of things, such as different cultures, communication and so on. Brock University is a good place to study! I am so excited everyday, because so many attractive things are waiting for me! I will do my best to make my dreams come true!</p><p>Write me an email: <a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a></p>
