Welcome to the ESL Open Learning Centre

The ESL Open Learning Centre (ESL OLC) offers English language and academic skills support to English as a Second/Additional Language (ESL) students registered in credit courses at York University. The Centre is open to ALL York students, registered in degree programs, AND IS FREE OF CHARGE. Graduate and undergraduate students are welcome. We are constantly developing our programs to meet the needs of ESL students at York, so please stay tuned for updates. Please feel free to drop in to ask any questions or to browse our library during our office hours. Students may request help in ANY aspect of English language communication that can include listening, reading, writing, and speaking.

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.
