Learning Centre

The Learning Centre is a support service for students who are studying ESL at VIU. You can come to the Learning Centre to get extra practice with listening, speaking, reading, writing, pronunciation, spelling, and vocabulary. Students can work one-on-one with a qualified ESL instructor, work in small groups, or engage in self-study activities.

The Learning Centre also hosts special workshops on a variety of topics.

You can find out more about the Learning Centre and our schedule on the ELC Learning Centre Facebook.
