In existence since 1986, the Learning Section offers learners of ESL and FLS a wide range of materials to assist in the development of their second language.

These students have access to the following:

  • Computers

  • Audio equipment
  • Software programs
  • Audio-cassettes and CDs
  • Textbooks
  • Reference materials
  • Comic strips
  • Magazines

The Learning Section clientele is composed of special and regular students and employees of the University of Ottawa.

Consultants

The consultants' role includes interacting with students (i.e. welcoming students, orienting them and assisting them in locating materials appropriate to their level of ability). Consultants also provide individual attention to students, when time permits.

Second Language Monitors

The monitors provide students with practice in oral communication skills. These monitors work with individuals and small groups. They also provide extra help to students who use the Learning Section.

Use of materials

The Learning Section is a reference library only and does not permit the materials to be removed from the premises at any time.

The Learning Section is composed of 4 areas designed for individual work:

  • A reading, composition, and reference area
  • A listening area, which consists of individual listening stations
  • A video room, where students may watch videos individually or in small groups
  • A computer room where students have access to multimedia work stations
