QSoE Newsletter Summer Review 2015

Greetings from Queen's School of English! 
 
Autumn is a time of transition. As we move from summer to winter and enjoy the last days of warmth and sunshine before the snow begins to fall, we resume the rhythm of study and preparation for the academic year ahead. 
 
This semester, we welcome twenty QBridge Pathway students to the Queen's School of English (QSoE). Continue reading to find out more about this pathway. 
 
We have a lot of exciting updates for you in this issue of our newsletter. We begin with a general reminder about the new Electronic Travel Authorization, and continue by sharing the QSoE student experiences, which are highlighted through our new video, a Queen's Gazette story about our QBridge Pathway, and a blog post. We also introduce our international partners to our new Tailored Catalogue. And, as always, you will have a chance to meet one of our instructors, Hee-sook Lim Kerstens.
 
In addition, we would like to highlight some of our other important developments.
 
We are pleased to announce that QSoE is now offering an English language pathway to the St. Lawrence College (SLC) students. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between SLC and QSoE in July and we have welcomed the first students into our English for Academic Purposes Program in September. Upon successful completion of our Beginner and Elementary levels, these students will transition back to SLC, where they will attend the Intermediate and Advanced levels of the English as a Second Language program before starting their diploma studies.
 
We also would like to welcome our new agent representatives:
  • CLASS Education, Mexico
  • Successful Education Center, Taiwan
And finally, congratulations to our newest members of the Student Ambassador Program: Barbara and Josafa from Brazil; Miho, Yuna, Hitomi and Tomoyuki from Japan; Meilin from Panama; and Ibrahim from Saudi Arabia.
 
Enjoy reading through our newsletter and email us if you have any questions.
 
Warmest regards,
 
QSoE Team

New Homestay Provider

New Homestay Provider

We are pleased to announce The Canada Homestay Network (CHN) as the new homestay provider for Queen’s School of English (QSoE) beginning in August 2015. For decades, we offered our own homestay program, which has become a vital part of our student experience here at Queen’s and in Kingston. We would like to acknowledge the contributions of our Homestay Coordinators: Mary-Lou Nolte, who helped to establish and develop the homestay program for more than twenty years, and Helen Parfitt, who helped to coordinate the program during the past three years.
