Barbecue luncheon eases English language students into Canadian environment

For Tiffany Lu, the English language is more than a means of expression. It is a key to making more friends and getting better career opportunities.

The first-year accounting major is one of 300 international students starting the English Language Improvement Program this month. The Centre for English Language Development welcomed the students Friday with a free barbecue luncheon to meet their classmates, instructors and staff.

“English is very important in the professional world today,” Lu said. “This knowledge will open more doors for me back in China.”
