A "Business Class" school in an exceptional setting.

You will learn English in the heart of Vancouver’s business district! Our St. Giles partner school is located in the lively district of Coal Harbour, around 15 minutes from the beach and the famous Stanley Park. Close to the school, you will find plenty of shops, cafés, shopping centres, galleries and theatres. St. Giles is housed in a modern building whose 4th floor is especially fitted out for studying and the modern and comfortable facilities make the learning of English particularly pleasant. Thanks to a team of highly qualified teachers and to solid experience in teaching professionals, St. Giles offers a complete range of English course programmes that are tailor-made according to your specific needs. This establishment also distinguishes itself by its nationality mix, making the school an ideal environment for meeting people from all backgrounds, who share your interests. The Platinum Centre, reserved for participants following "executive" programmes, will offer you a very convivial setting to establish valuable contacts and develop your network of acquaintances. And to add to your pleasure, with the Seabus and the Skytrain nearby, you will be able to explore the length and breadth of the "Pearl of the Pacific" very easily and make the very most out of everything it has in store for you.
