Students Testimonials

Here's what former students are saying about OSLT:

Abdulbary Farhat

What I really liked about the OSLT course is how it made me realize the cultural differences that are linked to everyday life and the workplace. I have a much better understanding of Canadian culture and how to deal with Canadian people in an effective way.

A good course can help the newcomer to be happy, fearless and successful in a new environment. OSLT is really a good course for a newcomer who wants to find a job in Canada.  The on-line videos and practice in class allow for deeper knowledge. I really liked the flexibility of learning online. By doing presentations and in-class dialogues, the course helped to improve my skills and improve y confidence.

Trisha has a background in IT Project Management
