Guilherme Nocera is a student from Brazil and he has completed a
6-week English course at LSC/EC Vancouver.
Why did you choose Vancouver to study English?
When I was finishing my Master’s Degree I had a friend and we decided to take a course together inCanada, because his brother had studied English at LSC Vancouver and he recommended it.
How would you compare Vancouver with the other cities that you have been in Canada, such as Montreal and Toronto?
In my opinionVancouver is the best. People there are very helpful. It is easier to take skytrain and buses inVancouver than other cities.
Tell us about your homestay family…
There were four people plus one student from Switzerlandin my homestay. It was perfect! When I arrived there, on February 25, they seemed very happy to have me as their family. We used to go to the gym twice a week together. While the parents exercised, their two sons and I practiced karate. It was like having a real family.
What is the best thing about living in a homestay? Would you recommend this to other students that are planning to come to Canada?
In a homestay, it is possible to improve listening more easily, so the homestay hosts work as a second teacher. Also the hosts know a lot about the city. They can tell us which buses to take and the places we should visit. It is very comfortable, and I recommend it.
