Monday, June 17, 2019 - 1:30pm

It takes practice to learn how to transform thoughts into questions and discussion points. Avoid the awkward silence by finding ways to engage more and to share your unique stories and points of view. 

  • Improve your English communication skills
  • All year levels, programs, and students welcome
  • Support for ELL students (English Language Learners)

This is an informal workshop. We encourage you to stay for the whole thing, but you may arrive late or leave before the end if you need to. Snacks will be provided. 

Note: this workshop is open to current OCAD U undergraduate students - either those currently taking summer courses, or those returning for 2nd year or above.

  • You are free to work in room 512 before and/or after a session
  • Drop-In sessions last for 15 minutes, and are best for quick questions and feedback
  • Drop-In sessions are open to any current undergraduate student

During Study Week, Drop-In will run Tuesday - Friday from 1-3pm at the WLC, 113 McCaul Street, level 5. 


In addition to drop-in tutoring, we are offering the Drop-In Writing Studio on Friday, February 22nd between 1-3pm
