About LiveHelp in the Department of French
This is a secure online instant messaging system where you can chat with the advisor. Students will be assisted on a first come first serve basis, based on log-in time. LiveHelp is particularly useful for students who cannot make it during drop-in advising hours at the Burnaby campus but need a faster response than email.
