Language and Culture Open Program

Thompson Rivers University

Meeting the needs of hundreds of enthusiastic learners from around the world each year, our Language and Culture Open Programs form the cornerstone of all the programming offered by the International Training Centre. Consequently, we’ve been able to broaden our program options to include 4 hands-on workshops that enable students to develop and expand their intercultural communications skills.

In addition, students can now boost their learning opportunities by choosing from a series of very practical and relevant electives. A full array of carefully selected cultural and recreational activities are woven into each program, and ample time is reserved for level- appropriate English language classroom instruction. The result is a highly motivating and dynamic programming that will leave you with increased cultural knowledge, greater language proficiency, and a more informed world view.
