Lifelong Language Learning
Lifelong Language Learning (LLL) offers non-credit language courses to any adult in the Kitchener-Waterloo region interested in learning Chinese, Japanese, or Korean. Courses are offered throughout the year in Winter, Spring and Fall terms during the evening. With a focus on the interactive importance of language learning, LLL offers students a space to learn a new language within a practical and engaging learning environment. Our courses range in topics from basic to advanced language acquisition, traditional Chinese medicine, calligraphy and brush painting, and Japanese Manga. Through its commitment to the importance of cultural awareness in language learning, LLL provides a diverse and enriching learning experience that is unique amongst the array of language learning programs out there.
The LLL program provides an enriching environment for all adults in our community to learn a new language at any stage of life. It deconstructs barriers and builds bridges to allow a diverse language community to grow both here at Renison University College and also the community at large.

One of the student success programs is focused on helping refugees who are making Canada their home. Through the generosity of donors, we are providing English for Academic Purposes programs, through our English Language Institute, to refugees who need to improve their language skills in order to restart their career or continue their schooling in a new country.
