Mariana Bellonci shares her EC experince!

Hello! My name is Mariana Bellonci, I`m from Brazil and I studied at EC Vancover for 12 weeks. I would like to share a little bit about my experience in Vancouver. The time that I have been here in Vancouver was incredible. I had the chance to live some experiences  that I have never imagined before. I had the opportunity to live the real Canadian family living in a Homestay. It was brilliant! I also visited many beautiful places in BC, like whistler, Victoria, Stanley Park and Rocky Mountains. I met good friends from all around the world such as Turkey, Korea, Brazil, Switzerland, that I will keep in my heart forever. During my time in Canada, I was able to see the beautiful autumn, the rainy and cold winter and I also saw snow for the first time. I am very grateful to all my teachers and all the staff who work at EC. Without them, my days in Vancouver wouldn’t have been the same. I`m looking forward to travel again to meet all the friends that I made here in Vancouver.   Thanks EC Vancouver!   Thinking of taking a TOEFL test? Take your TOEFL test in Vancouver!

Go around the seawall or check the trails, The park is one of the biggest and most beautiful parks all around the world! 2 – Queen Elizabeth Park Located in central Vancouver atop the city’s highest point, this 130-acre park has gorgeous gardens featuring both deciduous and evergreen trees. When the colors start changing, the juxtaposition of the evergreens, gardens and red/orange hues of the trees that are morphing into winter hibernation is simply breathtaking. 3 – Van Dusen Botanical Gardens  Take the Laburnum Walk through Van Dusen Botanical Gardens, which features an eclectic mix of plant life that turns to crisp yellow throughout the fall. Also take a look at the ponds in the center of the park for a nice colour pairing of lily pads on the water and the surrounding plant life. 4 – University of British Columbia (10 kilometres, 6.2 miles)  The leafy campus of the University of British Columbia is a great choice for leaf-peeping. Located at the far western end of the City of Vancouver, the grand old trees lining the Main Mall turn spectacular colours, but the on-site UBC Botanical Garden is also full of reds, orange and yellows during autumn. 5 -Grouse Mountain  Although it’s filled with evergreen trees galore, Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver is still a sight to behold each autumn.
