Discover the ESL Open Learning Centre

We offer FREE English language support for any registered York University student who is currently learning English as a second or additional language in an York University ESL program or is currently in enrolled in academic undergraduate or graduate degree programs.  To get started drop by our office to register/book an appointment or class or visit our website to register/book online.

We offer various services to help our students, including private one-on-one tutorials, small group sessions (regular appointments), drop-in sessions (at the Learning Commons), themed classes that focus on specific language or academic skills, and our new conversation cafe on Fridays.

Please note that while our tutors and facilitators are happy to help you enhance learning strategies related to writing, we are not able to edit written work. Our focus is to enable you with strategies to enhance your communication skills outside the ESL OLC.
