Located in downtown Vancouver, a stone’s throw away from the public library and the main means of public transport, 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, the international participants will profit from the comfortable student lounge for a coffee break or a snack in a convivial atmosphere (vending machines are available for student use). A flat-screen TV will allow you to watch TV programmes in English with the other international students, whereas the individual study room will provide you with the perfect setting to revise for your lessons in a calm and quiet environment. You can also access the internet through the free Wi-Fi network and on the many computers available for use. The school staff will be at your disposal in the reception area, to welcome you and to provide you with help and support on a daily basis.

Please note that from May through October 2017 classes could take place in another building, close to the school.

Vancouver,BC war die perfekte Wahl. Tolle Stadt in der es viel zu entdecken gibt. Moderne Einrichtung mit motivierten und engagieten Lehrern. Ich habe mich immer auf den Unterricht gefreut. Viele Nationalitäten, das heisst man lehrnt jeden Tag etwas neues aus einer fremden Kultur und findet neue Freunde in der Welt. Die Familien war einfach nur toll. 100% Kanadier. Was will man mehr?! Sie kümmern sich toll um einem. Das Essen war eigentlich immer besser als in den Restaurants!

Il faut faire attention de ne pas tomber amoureux de la ville de Vancouver. C'est une ville tellement diversifiée qu'il est impossible de ne pas s'y plaire. Le ville se trouve au pied des montagnes et au bord de la mer. Ce qui l'a rend unique pour les activités outdoors. La ville est également surnommée North Hollywood et est assez renommée pour le milieu artistique. J'y ai passé douze semaines et je n'ai pas eu le temps de m'ennuyer un instant. Le seul contre point pourrait être la météo où il pleut continuellement à partir de Octobre. (Jusqu'à un mois sans voir un rayon de soleil) Mais cela n'empêche pas de trouver une activité à faire après les cours dans les shops, les pubs ou les sports indoors. EC est une école où on apprend beaucoup. Les professeurs ne sont jamais en manque d'idée pour rendre active la classe et les étudiants sont hyper motivés. Ce qui crée un élan dans la classe et une super ambiance. Parfois les professeurs ne nous reprennent pas assez quand on fait des fautes parce qu'ils apprécient nous voir avoir une conversation effrénée. Mais il y a tellement de personnalités diverses dans le staff de l'école qu'il est impossible de ne pas trouver un idéal.

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!
