Arrival and First Day in Vancouver
Because of Vancouver's good public transport system it is easy to travel to our English school. Allow yourself plenty of time on your first day to arrive at school.
First day begins at 08:30. Please remember to bring your insurance documents with you. You will not be able to start your English lessons unless you have them with you.
On your first moring you will take our Placement Test so that we can check your English level and put you in the best English class for you.
On first day, students have the evaluation, registration, and information session about school services, as well as a guided walking tour of the school surroundings.
It takes approximately 3 to 4 hours to complete all the steps of registration on the first day. In the months of July through September, it may take longer.
Your first day at our Vancouver English school will look like this:
08:40 Registration - Collect documents
09:15 Placement Test
10:45 Return documents
11:05 Tour and welcome coffee
25 Lessons and 30 Lessons students begin their classes as of 14:10 on the first day. All other students begin their classes at 09:00 on the next day.
