McMaster offers programs for students to develop their English language skills and immerse themselves in the English-speaking McMaster community. However, McMaster does not offer an English as a second language program for students who wish to further their education in this field of interest.....

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, Americans and newcomers who need study and language skills for college and university.
ESL in Canada provides the one-to-one private class academic preparation content and skills training required for college success which includes: 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.
The specialized academic and language skills programs can prepare you for college or university.
