Pitch Battle

EC Vancouver had its very first pitch battle on March 3rd to give our students an opportunity to speak in front of an audience.

The format was pretty simple – they were to make a sales pitch (maximum length: 2 minutes) through which they sell Vancouver as a destination to study English.

While it sounded easy, it was quite a challenge for a lot of participants for a couple of reasons.

Firstly, most of them had never made a sales pitch in their lives.

Secondly, they had to use English!

Mimi, one of the contestants said, “it was a great opportunity to get used to speaking in front of people and thinking on the spot. If you guys liked it, I would like to do this again and again and again for us to see how much we improve. It’s really good to know how I speak and how my pronunciation works for an audience.”


Osama and Ayumi were the winners of the pitch battle! They won a free trip to Whistler! Congratulations!!!
