    EAP 100/101 A., Anoosh

    Attending ESL classes at Capilano University means improving my self-esteem in an English-speaking society for me.  I had a very good experience in ESL classes with knowing great instructors who became my friends and I like them very much.  I also made friends from different countries.  It also had great influence on my English skills.  Thank you very much for providing permanent residents with these great, wonderful English classes.

    EAP 100/101 L., Hong

    It is a good experience for me to study ESL at Capilano University. This process of studying ESL makes me to quickly adapt to the new environment and the English teachers' style. It is useful for foreign students to adapt to Canadian lives. (April 11, 2013)

    EAP 100/101 L., July

    I was taking ESL plus course (ESL 080-02 with Milica and Sociology with Laurel).  The ESL study has broadened my knowledge on academic English and also opened up a chance for me to further my academic education.  With the amount of reading, writing, quizzes and assignments, and with the patient guidance from the teachers, the ESL plus study has become a valuable and rewarding experience for me.  As a mom of two young children, I didn't plan for any other academic studies at the beginning, but now I have clearly included this into my life, and making achieving academic success one of my personal goals in the future.  I love Capilano University!!!  (April 8, 2013)

    EAP 100/101 Y., Azar

    The educational system of Capilano University is an effective, serious, and friendly system which helps students learn and improve their English in the shortest time.  The teaching methods which instructors use them are unique.  I learned a lot of English by new methods of Carrie, Tony, and Milica.  Also, being bilingual of teachers in AP (Academic Program) is an important factor in this system because teachers have experienced the process of learning a new language, so they will understand student well.  (April 16, 2013)

    EAP 100/101 L., Susana

    I am glad to be a student at Capilano University.  I would like to thank you, Canada, for giving me a great opportunity to continue my studies.  Although it is hard and difficult to complete all the schoolwork, I enjoy the time with my classmates and teachers.  I truly agree that education is a lifelong learning, and it is worth spending our time to enhance our knowledge.  (April 9, 2013)

    EAP 100/101 C., Yulia

    My name is Yulia.  I'm currently taking the EAP 080 course that is combined with Sociology class.  I am glad that I took that course.  It's not only a useful but also an interesting class.  I like the way Milica teaches us.  I got a lot of knowledge from both English and Sociology classes.  I also like having small classes that help students find new people and get more skills from each other.  I have a good class with a friendly atmosphere.  (April 10, 2013)

    EAP 100/101 L., Sen

    EAP 080 which bands with SOC 100 is really helpful for English-as-a-second-language speakers.  I got a lot of help in academic study.  Without this help, I would not even get the real meaning of words in the context.  My instructor helped me get better understanding than if I just studied by myself.  I think bonding ESL to other academic courses is very important for international students.  This bond helps students know more about what an academic course is and how to study academic courses.  It is like a key of future academic study.

    EAP 090 C., Seho

    I have learned a lot about English.  Especially, every weekly quiz makes me stronger and also feel pressure!  (April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  D., Marius

    Great course, especially for young students!  Besides many English acknowledgements, it gives a lot of general and useful information about life and Canadian culture.  Great teachers, too!  (April 10, 2013)

    EAP  090  Z., Jingjing

    During the time when I studied here, my English improved a lot.  Before I came here, my English was bad, especially in grammar and speaking.  The EAP teachers are friendly and nice.  They taught me a lot of things.  I thought, 'if you did the things that the teachers taught you, you would have a good mark'.  (April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  Z., Yucheng

    I improved my English very much.  Besides, group work was the most beautiful experience I had in this course.  We did research, and talked to each to exchange our personal ideals.  The most important thing is that our speaking improved a lot, and we met many new friends here.  (April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  M., Anita

    I love the fact that you can call your teachers by their first name- that really helps us to make a great connection with them.  So far, all of the teachers that I had been with were so helpful and cheerful.  The teachers are always in a good mood, and we always do fun stuff in the class.  I think people should take the time to appreciate all the hard work that our teachers are doing. ( April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  G., Shu Yu

    I don't know what to say because everything is perfect for me.  I'm so content about the department I'm in right now.  If you would improve the food which is provided on campus, I couldn't be happier.  (April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  C., Aorui

    I have learned a lot of knowledge from this department.  My English is better now.  Teachers are very kind and helpful.  The only thing I don't like is there are too much homework and tests.  It's very hard when I take an academic course at the same time.  (April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  L., Wonjin

    Instructors teach very well, step by step, with detailed information and friendly connections.  They help students improve their English skills. ( April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  M., Romina

    I have been taking many ESL classes since I came to Canada.  The best place that really helped to improve my English is Capilano University classes.  The teachers are very kind and always happy to help students whether it's in class or in their offices.  I'm very happy to study here because I know I'll come to my future career successfully through Capilano University.  I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to learn English and find their career!  (April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  P., Victoria

    I like this style of education!  Small class, friendly teachers and the area.  I enjoy studying here!  (April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  N., Eugen

    EAP was a very useful course for me even though I had to face with a busy schedule.  I would like to send my appreciation to all three teachers who try to make us smarter in terms of English knowledge.  Thank you so much!  (April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  A., Katty

    Studying for two terms at Capilano University gave me the opportunity to believe in myself and my ability.  I really appreciate all the teachers without whom I couldn't succeed.  (April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  Z., Jacob

    With the people from all over the world, with the environment that is related to nature and cleanliness, with the teachers who are sympathetic, it is really a good place to study English.  (April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  L., Pengfei

    Cap U is a good place to study.  I made a lot of friends and met some nice teachers.  For the website, there is enough information that you can find.  (April 11, 2013)

    EAP  090  Z., Jun Yi

    Capilano's EAP class is the best ESL class I have ever joined.  Especially the teachers who taught me in the past and now, they are all good teachers with kindness and patience.  I felt a huge improvement after I took the class.  The learning environment is very fun and happy.  I love it! Keep up the good work!  (April 11, 2013)

    EAP 080 B., Ryan

    Capilano University is a good studying place for people who speak English as a Second Language. I have learned a lot of useful knowledge in the EAP courses. I really had fun here, not only because of the good teachers but also of the beautiful environment which is around the whole campus. (April 10, 2013

    EAP 080 T., Quang

    Capilano University is a good university in Vancouver.  There are many places or buildings that we would visit.  Every equipment is OK.  I think Capilano University is the best school that I have studied at. (April 10, 2013)

    EAP 080 A., Mohammad

    I think the EAP department at Capilano University is the right place to study English because I had studied in some EAP schools but they were not good as Capilano.  (April 10, 2013)

    EAP 080 V., Djemson

    I am enjoying my class a lot.  I have made good friends in my class and also at the campus.  My English has been improving a lot.  I like my instructors and they provide very good service.  I can say it is challenging but I like it. (April 10, 2013)

    EAP 080 Y., Soomi

    I'm glad to have a chance to learn English in Capilano University.  The course was not easy, but it was very useful for me.  I learned English in Korea for many years and I thought my grammar was good.  But during this class I realized my grammar was for grades.  But, I think parking fee and the price of something to eat is some higher than I thought.  (April 10, 2013)

    EAP 080 H., Shirley

    The class is very professional which I like.  I think if there are more handouts to students that would be very helpful for us.  The grammar class is outstanding for me.  I like it. (April 10, 2013)

    EAP 080 B., Hatice

    I have settled in Canada 10 months ago and I didn't know how to speak, read, and write in English.  I have started to study here in the last fall term.  So far, I have learned much knowledge from ESL instructors.  I think we have great instructors and they teach really effectively.  In conclusion, I am so happy and glad to be here.  Thank you.  (April 10, 2013)

    EAP 080 G., Mandeep

    In Capilano University, English classes are very good and through these classes I learned a lot.  EAP department's teachers are very cooperative.  My experience in this class is very good.  I think these classes are helping to me to learn English.  The Capilano campus area is very wonderful but I don't like the cafeteria food.  (April 10, 2013)

    EAP 080 L., Hua

    The courses are improving our English skill, and it would be better if there are more opportunities for practicing speaking skills, such as some activities or parties.  We need more seats in the cafeteria or a new place for lunch.  (April 10, 2013)

    EAP 080 H., Helen

    I am really happy to go to Capilano University.  I am lucky to study at ESL 050 and 060 at the EAP department.  Especially, I love the courses and I love all my instructors.  They are amazing teachers.  They helped a lot.  They are very kind and they have a sense of humour.  They make it so I like to join the class every day.  In short, I like my good time in Capilano University. (April 10, 2013)

    EAP 070 M., Sarah

    "SHARE." I associate this word with Capilano University, especially in my classes.  The first time I came to the class, I was a little nervous because I had just come to Canada.  However, we immediately got along with each other because of the teachers' influence.  I am learning English from three wonderful teachers now.  My classmates are from many countries, and they have different cultures.  Our teachers acknowledge each culture and idea, so we have a good relationship, and the classes are comfortable.  Actually, we share each nationality and compare our thinking.  It is interesting to know new ideas that I have never thought about before.  Each student's view is received and respected in Capilano University.  The teachers help us improve by making us study and have fun.  Since I entered Capilano University, I like going to school, and I enjoy every day.  Also, I am continuing to study, and I am encouraged to grow more through the great opportunity and experience.  (April 15, 2013)
