My 15 weeks in Vancouver were the best experience of my life! I chose OHC school, perfectly located in the pretty Gastown neighbourhood. It is a small school, which gives you the opportunity to meet all the students in a “family” atmosphere. Many activities were organised by the school. I lived in a host family, which turned out to be like a second family! Vancouver is a perfect town for many activities, like for example bike rides in Stanley Park, shopping in the city centre, beer drinking in the many microbreweries as well as various things - or outside the city but close to it: a road trip in the Rocky Mountains, a ski ride in Whistler or in the North Vancouver mountains, kayak in Deep Cove, whale or bear watching in Tofino etc. Canadians are known for being welcoming and nice, I can only confirm it! My English improved, my self-confidence as well and, most of all, I have friends from all over the globe! I am already organising my next stay.
