"My first year here in Canada was amazing because of WELC and Western. When I first came here, I was shy when I spoke English. After eight months learning and practice with the help of our instructors, I became more confident and got ready for my undergraduate study."
"There were challenges and cultural norms I had to adapt to, but WELC gave me the opportunity to experience a unique education experience and environment. I learned a lot from studying at WELC, my English language improved a lot, and I made friendships that will never end."
"One of my memorable experiences I had at WELC is that I could meet wonderful friends. I was only one Japanese student, so I found it difficult to talk with classmates. However, everyone was friendly, so I could make many friends. Moreover, teachers were also wonderful. They taught us English very well and they always helped me when I have any problems."
