Victoria in Kanada war für mich der optimale Ort. Es ist eine nicht allzu grosse Stadt mit viel Charme und sehr hilfsbereiten Menschen. Es bietet sehr viele Möglichkeiten für verschiedenste Aktivitäten wie schwimmen, klettern, Kayak fahren,... In der Natur ist man auch sehr schnell und kann somit viele Wildtiere beobachten, was für mich eine komplett neue Erfahrung war. Die Schule ist sehr empfehlenswert. Ich empfand sie als sehr familiär und weltoffen. Das Personal ist äusserst hilfsbereit. Die Schule bietet jeden Tag verschiedenste Aktivitäten an.An dieser Schule waren viele Japaner, Koreaner, Kolumbianer, Mexikaner und Saudi Araber. Der Mix war sehr interessant.

Je recommande vivement Victoria! Pas trop grande (pour les trajets et aussi très peu dangereuse), pas trop petite (de nombreux magasins et restaurants), et tout simplement magnifique! Le Canada est un pays très accueillant! Tout le personnel est très accueillant!!! J'ai eu la chance d'avoir la ''meilleure'' prof de l'école qui avait des méthodes d'enseignement exceptionnelles. Je n'ai jamais aussi bien retenu mon vocabulaire ni travaillé mon accent. J'ai eu une très bonne répartition entre expression orale, vocabulaire, grammaire et compréhension orale, mais peut-être un peu moins d'expression écrite. J'ai été merveilleusement bien accueillie et intégrée à la famille. Il y avait de la nourriture à profusion. J'avais ma propre chambre avec lit double, penderie, bureau et commode ainsi que ma propre salle de bain (je ne partageais que la douche avec ma ''colocataire'', qui n'en avait pas. Il y avait 15mn de trajet à pied et un peu plus de 10mn en bus. J'ai beaucoup pleuré en les quittant et prévoit de venir les revoir! Toute la famille est venue en surprise avec un cadeau à l'école pour mon dernier jour.
