Don’t just take our word for it, here is what a past student of the CALL program had to say:

This computer class is very helpful – I learned a lot in terms of internet exploration, receiving and sending emails, booking appointment online, typing, creating documents, and sharing them with my teachers. Computer class is better because many things are linked to computer use these days in Canada.”
