English Language Learners

We welcome all students for writing support regardless of their levels of English-language proficiency. Our team will work with you on issues related to types of writing assignments, standards of university writing, grammar and vocabulary development, and citation techniques. If you have any questions about English language support, email Writing Centre (Waterloo) or Writing and Study Skills Services (Brantford).

Our extensive collection of resources provides English language learners with important information about academic writing.

English language learners should also check in with Laurier International about upcoming workshops.
