ELT Success Stories / Testimonials

One of my fellow ELT students, Eliane, whom I met at the Triec mentoring information session, recommended this program.

It is a good program for newcomers. It facilitates the learning of Canadian business communication skills and workplace behavioral skills. It also equips them with job search methods and tips to begin a successful career in Canada.

I really enjoyed working with a multicultural team with a sales and marketing background. I learned different perspectives from their career experiences and their newcomer experiences in Canada. I also learned many nuances of effective communication from Barbara Carter, ELT Instructor.

I learned many useful job search tips from the Job Developer. The mock interview process helped me reflect on my body language and my responses to behavioral interview questions.

I learned the importance of conversational writing and its effectiveness in making the communication genuine and in gaining readers engagement.

Would you consider referring the ELT program to others?

Yes. It is a great platform for newcomers to learn Canadian business communication and to gain their first practical experience in working with a multicultural team here in Canada.

“The ELT can help internationally trained professionals by providing them with the resources they need to get acclimated to the Canadian workplace environment and by helping them leverage on their skills and experience to gain opportunities… being in a program like ELT is like being in the workplace; whether it’s interacting with others, learning and re-learning, establishing contacts, and helping others get better.

Whether you have basic or intermediate language skills, I would recommend the ELT program if you’re looking for a program that combines practical communication skills development and training, relevant workplace and sector-specific information, and useful job search tools and strategies.”

Testimonial from Hanh Thi (Hannah)

“It (ELT) is helpful for newcomers, it is designed based on what we need to know about general culture and working environment in Canada and enhance our language skills to easily adapt to the English speaking communities. 

The teacher is very enthusiastic to explain all the definitions and concepts that are strange to us about life in Canada. He always welcomes questions and helped me fix language errors in my resume. 

The Job developer also helps to identify what is the (difference) in job hunting strategy in Canada and in my home country, so that I can apply and change my approach immediately to get a job offer quickly. 

I enhanced my languages skills… got job searching skills and know how to well prepare for an upcoming opportunity.”
