If you need or want to improve your written and spoken proficiency in English, the SFU Library (Student Learning Commons/Research Commons) offers a wide range of services for students.

All graduate students benefit significantly from taking advantage of the Writing and Publishing support services (by Writing Coordinator, Renee McCallum and her team of Graduate Writing Facilitators) and ALL the other services provided for graduate students through the Research Commons.

Another beneficial program is the International Teaching Assistant Program. It's a free graduate seminar designed for teaching assistants and graduate students who speak English as an additional language. The seminar helps students' academic communication and teaching skills.

New: SFU's new Centre for English Language Learning, Teaching, and Research (CELLTR) will soon be located on the first floor of the West Mall Centre. CELLTR provides SFU students, staff and faculty with teaching and learning services that support them in SFU’s multilingual environment. Check out their upcoming events.

If you are an EAL learner seeking services to support you in your SFU graduate program, or a TA looking for ways to support the EAL learners in your classrooms, you are encouraged to provide comments on what services, workshops and resources you would like to see as CELLTR develops. Submit your comments online.
