“My Canada adventure” by Elif

MY CANADA ADVENTURE This is my first overseas experience. In Canada I had the opportunity to meet new friends and see many new places that I had never seen. I visited different places, for example Victoria, Whistler, Canada Place, Robson Square, Stanley Park, and  Science World . EC school helped me learn  English and also recognize people from different countries. I love my school and my teachers. I have been here 3 months so far and I will go back to my country in 3 another so i am sure I will have lots of new experiences here, I will meet new people and I’m sure I’ll improve my English a lot more!

Donggyun Kim from Korea shares his story in Vancouver!

Donggyun Kim from Korea shares story while learning English at EC English school in Vancouver. I’ve been here for 16 weeks. I think it was a pretty long time to make good memories. Strangely, I got along with many Swiss friends without any Korean friends. Actually nowadays, it is not true but for two months, it was true. In contrast with Korean, most foreign friends don’t stay here more than two or three months… Consequently, all of my foreign friends left earlier than me. But with them, I spent a lot of time and have variety memories.  Every Tuesday, we went to the Cambie Pub to play Beerpong and to drink beer. My beerpong team, called Fishympics(Fish+Olympic) and made up with three Swiss men and I as players and one Swiss girl as a coach, was really perfect and good at the game so that we were champions. Every Thursday, we went to Library square Pub. Usually we enjoyed beer and met other friends, also we liked to dance on the stage in a big circle. Our group looked for exciting activities like Lazer tag, Archery tag, and Extreme trampoline. Sometimes it was disappointing but we kept looking for new one. I’m so sad to let many friends go, but it was a really unforgettable time. And now as I changed my class to FCE, I should concentrate on the studying.

Helen shares her experience about working at EC Vancouver!

My name is Helen and I am from China. I was a practicum student at EC English in Vancouver for four weeks right before I graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University. My job duty was to help the front desk with social media updates and other administrative tasks. It was a very pleasant experience and I had a lot of fun at EC English. During those four weeks, I learned how to get the job done efficiently and effectively, how to be a team player, and how to apply my problem-solving skills to address students’ questions and concerns. More importantly, I met a lot of lovely people and became friends with them. It was a wonderful journey. I would say EC Vancouver is a warm big family with nice people and welcoming atmosphere. As a practicum student, I strongly recommend EC English Language School – Vancouver as a lovely stay to the other prospective practicum students. Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody at EC English for turning my stay into such a beautiful memory.
