Student Ambassador program

Welcome to your new challenge! English courses in Vancouver offer much more than just the excellent opportunity of improving your English skills. You can be part of our team and work with us on different projects. What do Student Ambassadors do? Student Ambassadors are not only interested in learning English, they are also happy to help other students by answering their general or specific questions. They share their experiences about studying and living in Vancouver and serve as role models to other students. Our Ambassadors assist our student services coordinators and share their feedback with our staff. As a Student Ambassador you will attend meetings with the other Ambassadors and let us know which EC activities you would like to do. If you would like to add new activities to our monthly calendar, your ideas are more than welcome. You are expected to join at least 2 EC activities per month and motivate your friends, classmates and other EC students to join as well. Not only our activities but also other school events are promoted by you. Before leading student activities on your own you will support our student services coordinators when they are leading activities. Student Ambassadors welcome new students and help with translation to low level students. How do Ambassadors benefit from the program? As a Student Ambassador you will gain leadership skills which you can present to your future employer. You will make a lot of friends and be part of our EC school community.

Not only your leadership skills but also your personal and professional skills will develop positively. How to apply? If you’re friendly, outgoing and accountable, we would … Read more

Thinking about driving a plane?

Alberto left us a couple of weeks ago after a few months studying at EC, here you can see how much he loved this city. “This photo is a summary of my amazing experience: I’m driving a airplane…!!! I like Canada a lot and at EC Vancouver everything is possible!! Because I came to learn English in Canada, in EC Vancouver, on 15 of August and I didn’t speak English at all, and now, sometimes, I do not remember some words in Italian ….. Wowwww!”

Why Soonyong loves studying in Vancouver

I like Vancouver because there are many beaches here, my hometown doesn’t have any! People are very kind and leisurely. I think that Vancouver and Korea are very similar, when I was walking through Robson St I felt that I was in Korea. So I didn’t need much time to adapt to this lovely city. Also, there are many Koreans living in Vancouver, however, it is a multicultural city. I can learn about any another culture! I love studying in Vancouver and I like to learn English in EC.
