“The photo shows my first sunny day in Vancouver in winter, haha!” – Matheus Lins, student ambassador.
Hey guys, how are you?
My name is Matheus Lins, I’m 23 and I’m Brazilian!
I’ve been in Vancouver for almost one month and on March 8th I’m going back to Brazil, but no stress, haha, 2019 is my graduation year in Brazil, so, I’m very happy and until March 8th I intend to enjoy all moments in Vancouver.
My experience has been incredible so far, starting at school, I could meet many people. Every day I have the opportunity to learn English in Canada with different students and knowing more about their culture and sharing more about what I know.
Vancouver became more than I was imagining. To be here is a unique opportunity! Vancouver is special in everything, the streets, the landscapes, the people and how the city works. I think that I would need much more time to really get to know Vancouver!
I like the free activities here and my favorite place is Stanley Park! It is so beautiful, Stanley Park is too good to be true. For me, this shows how Canada treats the environment and that makes Vancouver a special city, different from other cities! Besides that, there are other parks here and each one has a special way. I recommend Lynn Canyon Park and Van Dusen Park too.
Another thing that I really like is to try different foods and Vancouver is the best place to do this! It’s common to eat fast food and pizza, of course, but sometimes it is worth risking to try different foods. I already tried Japanese food, Vietnamese food, Mexican food, Filipin food etc.
Each day is a different adventure and I’m enjoying it to the fullest!
