Fatima – Pakistan
I joined Lethbridge College in summer 2017 as an ESL student. I was very new to Canada at that time. It was a difficult time for me because nothing seemed familiar to me. But when I joined my college, it was my one of the best decision I made. From the very first meeting with the academic coordinator, I could feel the welcome, warmth and friendliness – these are the things a person searches for when they are new to a country. ESL classes gave me an opportunity to make new friends and build my network, which later helped me to get a job.
After my graduation, a few months later I found that ELC had a job opening and I applied for it. Now it’s my time to return all the love and encouragement I received from these people and to make students feel at home.

Fang Fang Xie – China
I am from China. I came to Lethbridge to study English as a Second Language because my husband had studied at the university. I was a nurse for 16 years in my country, so I need to improve my English, and then I want to take the Nursing program at the college.
Living in Lethbridge is very interesting, and I need to learn many new things. I like Lethbridge because it has a beautiful and peaceful environment.
As a student, I have to be thankful for all of the ESL teachers. They give me knowledge and a happy life. I will respect them in my heart forever.

My aunt had studied at Lethbridge College for half a year, and she recommended this college, which has a great environment to study English. As I’m studying English, I feel that I want to study it more and graduate from a college or university. I’m interested in becoming a sports trainer. Although I was going to enrol in a Japanese university, I changed my mind. To be accurate, this environment changed my mind! Now, my goal is graduating from university here.
I really like Lethbridge because the people living here are very kind and familiar. Moreover, I can concentrate on studying with good teachers and an ESL program. I’m learning about not only English, but also Canadian culture and so on. When I have a question, I ask my teachers; they answer it very kindly. Even if I can’t understand well, they teach me until I understand completely.
The college environment also influences me. There is a good library and other places where I can study; I always go there and study or speak English with my friends after school.
I’m living with my host family. They are kind and serve great meals. I am learning many things from them. I am really enjoying my present life.
Giselle Thomas – Mexico
I came to Lethbridge to study English as a Second Language because some of my cousins came before, and they told me that this was a good place to study English. They were right. I needed to improve my English so that I can achieve the requirement of the English language at the university in Mexico.
Lethbridge is a wonderful place to stay because the people are friendly and social, especially to newcomers in Canada.
The ESL teachers and students are very friendly to each other and in the classes we have lots of fun.
I am living with a host family, and I think it is a good experience because it is like living with your own family.
I like Lethbridge College because it is a great environment to study; it is peaceful and everybody is friendly.
Teresa Anyek – Uganda
I am studying English as a Second Language to improve in my communication with others and because English is now a world-wide or international language. My goal for studying English is to accomplish my nursing course.
I like Lethbridge because it is a great environment, for me especially, and for other newcomers in Canada. It is a small peaceful city in Canada where you feel at home.
What I like about the ESL program in Lethbridge is that the teachers are friendly and kind to every student. There is lots of fun given to the students. For example, there are many activities like school trips and parties.
Joshua Hwang – Korea
I came to Lethbridge because my uncle who lives here recommended the city to me. Lethbridge is just the right size. It is not too small and not too large.
I am studying English because the language is very important to know in Korea and it is the language of the world. I would like to continue my studies in Social Services at a college or university in Canada.
What I like about the ESL program is that there are people from many different countries studying here. The teachers are friendly and they help me a lot.
The college campus is the right size, too; it is not too large and not too small. I enjoy using the gym and the library a lot.
Canada is a nice, quiet country with beautiful scenery and clean air.
Simon Chen – China
I come from China, and I am studying English in Lethbridge as my second language.
Before I came here, I knew Lethbridge was a beautiful, small city that has few Chinese speakers. After I arrived here, I found Lethbridge is pretty great to me. It has few but kind people, a relaxing life and a good living environment.
In my ESL study at Lethbridge College, I love every subject such as grammar, reading, speaking and writing. My English skills have improved a lot. In ESL class, we have a few parties, usually for some interesting festivals of Canada. Moreover, I really love the field trips.
Last year, I lived in an apartment in Lethbridge but now I am living in a house.
About Lethbridge College – I love the good studying environment, all the friendly teachers and the different students that came from other countries.
