Facilitated Study Groups

A facilitated study group (FSG) is a time and place for you to get together with other people from your classes and an FSG leader (someone who has previously taken the course) to discuss the course content and gain a deeper understanding of what is being covered in the class lectures and readings. This does not mean that the FSG leaders will teach you the content, but they will help you enhance your understanding of course material, and they can also help students with understanding assignment requirements. FSGs run until the last day of classes.

Peer Language Support Program

The Peer Language Support Program is a joint initiative by Writing & Study Skills Services and Laurier International. The program matches undergraduate students with multilingual learners on campus to meet regularly throughout the term. The purpose of the Peer Language Support Program is to provide students whose first language is not English with: the opportunity to meet and interact with other Laurier Brantford students; the opportunity to improve their conversational English; emotional and social support; and a forum to discuss their concerns and anxieties associated with academics, acculturation, and other issues.

If you are a multilingual learner who would like to improve your English, meet other students or receive support in a particular course, please contact the Laurier International coordinator.

If you are a Laurier Brantford student who is interested in volunteering in the program, please join us at one of the Fall 2018 training sessions:

  • Thursday, Sept. 27 from 2-4 p.m. in MP115
  • Tuesday, Oct. 2 from 10 a.m.-noon in MP115

Questions can be directed to Karley Doucette.

There are two options for participation in this program:

Conversational Support

Participants (undergraduates or LEAF students) are paired with other Laurier Brantford students. The students meet for approximately one hour per week to engage in fun activities and practice speaking conversational English.

Course-Specific Support

Each undergraduate participant is paired with a Laurier Brantford student in one of his or her classes. The students meet once a week to compare class notes and discuss lectures and readings. This type of support is helpful for courses where it is more difficult to keep up with the pace or volume of notes and readings.
