CNIE - Beyond the Library's Walls: ESL Centre

ESL Centre

ESL Centre: every Friday, the ESL Department runs a Learning Centre where students can receive individualized instruction from ESL instructors. During the Fall 2010 semester, library assistance was offered during Learning Centre hours one Friday per month. While students did come into the Centre, they were all needing help with their writing, not with their research; after receiving ZERO questions 4 months in a row, it was pretty easy to make the decision not to offer this particular service the following semester – it was clearly the wrong space for us to be helping ESL students, as we didn’t fit with how they were already using this place and service.
