Welcome To Cape Breton Language Centre
Cape Breton Language Centre (CBLC) improves a student’s English language skills, removing a barrier to the successful completion of subsequent academic programs and further professional development. CBLC prepares students for the academic demands of Cape Breton University Programs. As closely as possible, our program reflects the authentic tasks and assignments students do when they go to credit programs at university or college. Through our close relationship with our partner, students can experience university life first-hand while studying at CBLC.
Our Programs
The goal of the EAP program is to prepare students to read, write, speak and listen to English well enough to succeed in university. During the program, students practice academic and language activities that they will encounter during their university studies. Activities include viewing and discussing videotaped lectures, listening and note-taking, practicing academic reading and writing and completing various university examinations. Students will also build critical thinking and research skills and participate in a number of discussions and seminars.
Students in the EAP Program have the opportunity to experience university life through peer-to-peer visits. Organized by CBLC(Cape Breton Language Centre) and the CBU Students' Union, the visits give CBLC students a chance to meet current CBU students making the transition to CBU an easy one. CBLC students are also encouraged to participate in the many social and cultural activities offered by CBU.
Students Activities
CBLC organizes activities that are not only interactive and engaging, but fun and entertaining. All of our activities are organized by the Activity Coordinator of Student Services, and are always supervised by instructors and support staff. Some of the academic activities are spelling bees and essay writing competitions, and the non-academic activities include museum visits, wildlife park trip, whale watching, skiing, golfing, curling, soccer tournaments, basketball tournaments, horseback riding, participating in the Santa Claus Parade, Chinese New Year celebrations, Ramadan and Arabian Nights celebrations, Halloween Party, and many more. Every September we organize a bus tour of the world famous Cape Breton Highlands National Park, as well as a welcome Barbeque outside the residence buildings as part of orientation week.
