Located in downtown Vancouver, a stone’s throw from the public library and public transport links, our partner school offers an exceptional learning environment to study the English language. Its bright and spacious classrooms are the ideal setting for interactive lessons, taught by passionate and qualified teachers. Between or after classes, international students can enjoy the comfortable student lounge for a coffee break or a snack in a pleasant atmosphere (vending machines available for student use). A flat-screen TV will allow you to watch series in English with the other international students, whereas the individual study room is the perfect setting to review your lessons in a calm and quiet environment. You can also use free Wi-Fi and the many computers available for students' use.

Wegen vielen Schülern im Sommerhalbjahr hat die Schule externe Räume dazugemietet, die 15 Gehminuten entfernt waren. Diese Räume waren eng und schwach ausgerüstet.In ihren eigenen Räumen ist die Schule gut ausgerüstet. Zuviele Schweizer Zimmer war relativ klein, wahrscheinlich üblich in dieser teuren Stadt

Vancouver ist eine wunderschöne, vielseitige und offene Stadt für einen Sprachaufenthalt. EC hat mit ihrem Standort in Vancouver Downtown eine super Lage. Der Toefl Vorbereitungskurs war eine sehr lustige Gruppe. Auch beide Lehrer haben den Stoff gut rübergebracht. Die Residenz hatte eine super Lage, Einkaufs- und Shoppingmöglichkeiten in fussgeläufiger Nähe. Im gleichen Stock der Schule war ein Ausflugsteam tätig.

Es gab keinen großen Nationalitäten-Mix in meiner Klasse. Brasilianer und Schweizer waren der mit Abstand größte Anteil. Zeitweise war ich die einzige Person, die nicht von dort kam :D In meiner Klasse war das Durchschnittsalter meistens Anfang 20. Manchmal natürlich auch jüngere Teilnehmer, aber auch immer wieder einige Teilnehmer über 30 oder sogar 40, wobei diese auch meist nur für kurze Zeit da waren.Die Größe der Klasse war sehr wechselhaft, zeitweise nur 4 Person, dann aber langsam wieder mehr, als es auch mehr in den Frühling ging.Der Unterricht hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht und man hat viele interessante Lehrer und Schüler kennengelernt. Doch ich war 12 Wochen in einem Level, da ich bereits im höchsten Level der Schule war und ungefähr in der letzten Woche fingen wir von vorne mit dem Buch an, da dies auch ungefähr so im Zeitplan der Schule steht. Nichtsdestotrotz hat der Unterricht Spaß gemacht und nach so vielen Wochen kann man sich ja auch nicht mehr an alles erinnern :D Kleines Apartment, aber völlig ausreichend und in einer guten Lage. Waschmaschine und Trockner gegen Gebühr im Keller, sowie ein kleines Gym. Man kann Räumlichkeiten, eine Küche oder einen Grillplatz für Veranstaltungen mieten , es gibt einen Minigolf-Platz, einen Pool und ein Hot Tub. Relativ laut wenn man zur Straßenseite in der 1. Etage wohnt, besonders da das General Hospital sehr nah dran ist.

Der Sprachaufenthalt war für mich eine tolle, lehrreiche Erfahrung! Es war mein erster Sprachaufenthalt, so war ich sehr froh, als alles gut geklappt hat. EC ist eine gute Schule mit guten Lehrpersonen. Ich habe gehört, dass sie zu den teuersten Sprachschulen gehört. Der Standort der Schule ist sehr gut, Downtown. Es ist super, dass man die Hausaufgaben in der Schule lösen kann und dass auch Wlan zur Verfügung steht. Jedoch mussten einige Klassen in ein anderes Gebäude wechseln, da sie zu viele Schüler hatten. Die Klassenräume waren sehr klein, wir konnten uns darin kaum bewegen, geschweige den Gruppenarbeiten machen. Auch die Infrastruktur war nicht optimal. Für den Preis bin ich ein wenig enttäuscht von der Infrastruktur und den Klassenräumen. Auch die Sauberkeit der Toiletten lässt zu wünschen übrig. Da gibt es bestimmt noch Steigerunspotenzial. Ausserdem hatte es an der Schule hautpsächlich Schweizer, Japaner oder Brasilianer. Der Viva Tower ist eine tolle Unterkunft inmitten von Vancouver. Es ist super, dass man alles gut zu Fuss erreichen kann. Das Apartment ist schon ein wenig in die Jahre gekommen, da wäre eine Renovation oder eine neue Raumplanung wünschenswert (vor allem in Anbetracht, was die Unterkunft kostet). Es wäre zudem schön, wenn die Regeln gem. Hausordnung auch von allen Studenten eingehalten würden. Es gab sehr viele unerlaubte Parties im Viva Tower, Studenten rauchten auf den Balkons und waren teilweise laut. Trotz Anruf an den Sicherheitsdienst, wurde keine Busse ausgesprochen. M.E. sind sie zu wenig konsequent. Zuerst hatte ich einen Schulweg von 25 min zu Fuss und dann aufgrund Gebäudewechsel nur noch von ca. 10 min. Die Freizeitangebote der Schule sind nicht schlecht, wiederholen sich aber sehr häufig und werden teilweise zu wenig beworben.

Testimonials

Marie Fugier
Marie Fugier
EC, Vancouver
Duration: 5 weeks

Last summer I spent 5 weeks in Vancouver to improve my English and it was an incredible experience.
Apart from the fact that the country is truly amazing, EC Vancouver welcomed me in the best possible way.
Upon arrival, all the new people went to have dinner together and visit the city, which means that you’re not alone for long; in my case, I met a group of 10 people that day, and we spent the whole stay together! (and we are still in touch!). The nationality mix and the learning method gave me a lot, and the school staff recommended us the best excursions in British Columbia (Victoria, Rockies Mountains and much more). So many good memories; I want to go back!
