Held for one month every summer and now in its fifth year, the Zhejiang University Summer Language Program at the University of Ottawa is a cultural and linguistic development opportunity for undergraduate students from China. They attend Zhejiang University in Hangzhou and the capital of Zhejiang Province.
At the Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute, students take two courses, one in reading newspapers and magazines in English and the other in oral communication skills. Excursions to Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto, and Niagara Falls also provide them with a rich education in Canadian culture.
From July 19 to August 13, OLBI welcomed 19 students from a variety of disciplines, including French, English, journalism, business, and science and two visiting professors.
