Our partner school occupies two campuses, both facing each other, in Vancouver city centre. You can reach the beaches in around fifteen minutes and Stanley Park in around 20 minutes. The premises of PLI are modern and all of the classrooms are equipped with all of the teaching material necessary for learning English. You will also have access to computers which offer the latest computer programmes as well as free Internet access (WiFi). In the student lounge, you will be able to meet up with your new friends in order to relax over a cup of tea or coffee, or to prepare yourself a refreshment (microwave, fridges and vending machines are available for your use).
