The Occupation-specific Language Training Program (OSLT) at George Brown College helps prepare newcomers for the workplace by focusing on the language and communication expectations of specific occupations in Canada. Many newcomers have considerable background and experience from their home country but have not worked in their field in Canada. OSLT builds cultural awareness to support communication in a professional Canadian work environment. Learning materials and activities reflect common workplace-based situations. The college’s instructors are experienced in teaching ESL to adults and draw upon the participants’ knowledge and experience of the subject matter. George Brown College, located in the heart of downtown Toronto, Canada’s largest city, offers newcomers the resources and the network to succeed in the Canadian job market.
