Northwest Community College to host 20 Mexican Students in unique language program

International students from Mexico looking to improve their English language skills are immersing themselves in Prince Rupert and Terrace for one month.

Residents of Prince Rupert and Terrace have the opportunity to bring the world to their front doors thanks to an innovative international education program at Northwest Community College (NWCC).

This fall, a group of students are visiting from Mexico as part of the country’s Proyecta 10,000 (Project 10,000) scholarship program, which sends 10,000 students abroad to improve their English. Twenty Mexican students are coming to NWCC for a four-week study program in October.

“International students on our campuses enrich the classroom environment and additional students will allow NWCC to offer new courses and subjects,” said Derek Lemieux, Director of International for NWCC. “For local students this means wider course selection and opportunity for evening and summer classes. Our communities benefit through increased engagement and small businesses see increased economic activity stemming from having more students in the community.”
