"Lakehead gave me the confidence to develop my English skills...It was an incredible experience!"

"Lakehead's programs are not only about teaching you what you need to learn but about being prepared for life, especially a life far away from home in the case of the international students. Definitely, Lakehead became my home away from home.
Studying at Lakehead was important because there I found a multicultural place with valuable people who helped me to enjoy learning English. They gave me the confidence to develop my English skills and to not being afraid of making mistakes when I was trying to express myself in a language that is new to me. It was an incredible experience!
The activities in my English lessons were fantastic. 5 hours per day studying English seemed to be a lot, but my professor was always doing different activities with us, so we were learning without noticing it. Boredom was not included in our vocabulary.
Lakehead offers so many different activities aside from English classes like dancing lessons, visits to the most prominent places in the city including the Thunder Bay Museum, hiking and the most spectacular landscapes and views I've ever seen. Those activities help you to take a look into Canada's history, help you to interact with Canadians and learn more about them."
