"I’m Paola. I’m from Ecuador. I studied in the ELP two levels of Academic English 4 and Academic 5 in 2021, my experience in online classes was excellent. When I came to Canada, my English level was low, and I found the classes challenging. The English classes allowed me to make good friends and get to know the different cultures worldwide.

The experience of studying English helped me to have a better understanding and fluency in the language. During these two levels of English that I took, I feel that I have improved all my skills thanks to ELP.

After completing my ELP program in September 2021, I started my PACE program at the University of Winnipeg. I am currently studying for a diploma in Predictive Analytics. During these four months that I have been studying at PACE, I realized that everything I learned in the ELP helped me a lot to do my work well in class, make my presentations and be able to communicate with my classmates.

I had the opportunity to share as a volunteer in the Language Partner Program, and it was a nice experience being able to help my classmates who were now studying English just like I did at the time. I had a lot of fun talking with them and helping them with any questions they had regarding the ELP program.

I am grateful for all the help that ELP gave me, especially my teachers, who always had the patience to guide us and help us in whatever we needed.

The only thing left for me to say is: All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them."
