My ESL class was the first time for me to make friends in a new country. I got the chance to practice my English and learn new skills. UFV will be an unforgettable part of my life.

I moved to Abbotsford without any English at all. I became an ESL student at UFV and learned English from the basic level to the academic level. Academic courses gave me the opportunity to work toward my goals.
