Nationalité pas assez diversifiée, majoritairement asiatique. Les salles de classe sont propres et les équipements suffisants.

Vancouver is a beautiful city, with a lot of interesting things to do. People there are relatively polite and respectful , a lot of more than in France. Unfortunately, there is a lot of Homless people in this city. Th school is in Downtown , so it's easy to found every shop and restaurant that you want nearby , by Walking. It's in the Zone 1 so it's perfect for people who only have a compass card for only Zone 1. There is almost 70% of Koren and Japonese in this school. After came Bresilian ( almost 10%), Mexicain , Colombian , Germain ….There is not a lot of french people. I only meet 3 french speakers in 3 months in this school. We are ask to work in group in almost every class, everyday. So if your not a sociable person it can be challenging for you. Teacher are nice and funny , is not as strict as a regular school , so you can talk freely in class , and say your point of view without problem. I was in APT CO-LIVING. You have your own apartment , with your own bathroom and a little kitchen. It's really small but it's ok because it's for only one person. Your are independant and can come and leave freely. You need to use a badge to enter so it's safe. There is the WIFI in each apartment, and some kitchen tool. The Big problem was the silverfish infestation. There were silverfish who come through the piping or other place. Its was so irritating to deal with this , they really need to called the Pest control in this building. There is an activity department in this school with a calendar of activity. If you want to join you need to pay . The price is different for each activity.

« Yes I imrpove my english. I was force to speak in english H24, so It wawn't easy but you get used to it eventually. In class they expect and demand that you speak only english and you had to participate in eveything. Teacher in the end of each course told you what you need to work in order to make progress. »
School highlights
« I was awsome to meet people of different nationality. It was also really great to have teacher who are open minded and funny. »

Les cours + de 30 ans ne concernaient que les 3h du matin, la moyenne d'âge était de 35 ans en même temps. Pour les cours optionnels de l'après-midi tous les étudiants étaient mélangés et la moyenne d'âge était beaucoup plus basse (20 à 22 ans), les échanges étaient intéressants mais beaucoup moins enrichissants pour ma part car beaucoup plus limités. Il est dommage que le programme + de 30 ans ne concerne que les cours du matin.

« J'étais le seul francophone dans ma classe du matin, c'était très enrichissant. De manière générale, peu de francophone dans cette école à la période où j'y étais ce qui limite les tentations de parler français, un très bon point ! »

Going to Canada, what’s more to Vancouver, had been my dream since I was a little girl… My stay showed me that it was worth waiting for! An amazing and memorable experience throughout 3 seasons… late summer, autumn, early winter! The colours and landscapes were gorgeous, the city was magical and the population, exceptional. My host family was just amazing and unique and took me to discover its country and culture in the best way possible. The school was really good and offered many extracurricular activities, and the teachers were excellent. Thanks to its location, we had the opportunity to go skiing in Whistler, to go to the Rockies, to visit Vancouver Island and to go to the USA on a shopping trip. I recommend this city to everyone since you will make beautiful encounters and have the time of your life!

Vancouver is my dream destination in Canada. It is a beautiful city with the beach, the sea and gorgeous landscapes. My 8-week language course there is one of the best things I have done in my life and I would do it again right now. Everything was perfectly organised, starting with ESL, the journey, the host family and the school. Everything went very well. And all the people I met were unique! Try it out...

I chose Canada because it really is a beautiful country. Canada offers gorgeous landscapes. I chose Vancouver because it is a really beautiful city, where there is a lot to see and to do. My host family was very nice but also kind of “crazy”. I had a wonderful time in Vancouver. The school was good, I met many people from different countries. Besides, the teachers were funny and dedicated.

Host family
Canadian families are known for their hospitality and for making their guests feel right at home. Host families live in residential areas of the city, which means students can enjoy a good quality of life and use public transport to go to the school. Students stay in single rooms, with half-board or full board provided. This option is ideal for immersing yourself in Canadian culture and practising English in everyday life situations. It also provides an opportunity to make friends for life in Canada! For more flexibility, it's possible to book accommodation without meals, in which case you'll have access to the family's kitchen.

Residence, apartment, hotel
Other accommodation options in residences, shared or private apartments or else in hotels are also available.
Contact us for more information.
