What people are saying about the ESL Camp
I found the experience to help Mr. Sturrup at the radio station was very fun and interesting to see how a radio station works. I could chose the music and speak live on air. My parents also said that 102.7 Chop FM is the best radio because it shows children how the radio works and let them also speak on the radio. I will miss the radio and Mr. Sturrup so much I hope that I can come back and I will listen in Germany only 102.7 Chop FM.

My experience was pretty great, we had a lot of activities and trips that were so fun and interesting, I know a lot of things about Canada now and that’s amazing. I will recommend this camp to my friends because it's worth every single moment, here the people are super nice. I won’t forget this experience because it helps me growing as a student but also as a being woman, which is really important for me.

If you want to have once in a lifetime experience, Pickering College is the right place for you. If you want to keep something to remember, Pickering College is the right place. But most of all you will end up forming a family of great people, creating memories and you will always have something that was worthy and that it will remain forever.

My experience with the Pickering College English as a Second Language Program has been nothing but astounding. Working as an English as a Second Language teacher this past summer provided me with the opportunity to work with students from around the world at a close and personal level. With no more than sixteen students in each class, the English as a Second Language teachers feel that they are able to work one-on-one with students to improve all aspects of their English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. I can say that I am proud of every one of my summer students.
The program is inquiry based with an emphasis on collaboration and group learning. With a focus this summer on the European Cup and the summer Olympics, we were able to involve sports from around the world to engage our students with real life practices in the classroom. I have seen students grow in both their social and academic abilities and have never met a more amazing group of inspirational, international students.
