Canadian families are known for their warm welcome and for making their guests feel right at home. Host families live in the residential areas of Vancouver, which offers a certain quality of life, but which means having to use public transport to get to the school.
Guests stay in single rooms and have half board or full board provided. This option is ideal for immersing yourself in the Canadian culture and for practising English in everyday situations. It's also the opportunity to make friends for life in Canada. For more flexibility, it is also possible to book accommodation without meals included. In this case, you can still use the family's kitchen.

But this is “Hawaii Plus”... the nearby mountains offer superb skiing and snowboarding opportunities in the winter months and hiking during the summer. Mountain bike along the wooded trails of Stanley Park or simply breath in the fresh air of British Columbia.
