Student ambassador Regina García González

  Say Hello to our student ambassador Regina: Hello! My name is Regina García González, I’m from Mexico, more specifically from north Mexico. I’m 17 years old and I’ve been here for almost 5 months. I can tell you that this is the best experience that I ever had and will ever have and that coming to Vancouver English Centre was just the best decision ever. Vancouver has everything! If you consider yourself a natural adventurer this is your place with the beautiful landscapes, mountains and hiking spots! But if you also consider yourself more of a city person then you are in the right place because Vancouver is so cultural and diverse that you get to experience a single part of each country here. Coming here I become more grown and self known of who I am and it will give you a sense of independence and maturity. Plus you get to make friends from all over the world and the best things is the bond you create with them and I have learnt so much about them! And becoming and EC ambassador really fulfills my social improvement and of course the English! I love exploring the city, trying new foods, and making new friends! I’ve never been happier in my life. Vancouver is the greatest city ever. Now I know what I’m capable of. And the thing that I most like about here is that everything is for good: getting lost and making mistakes is just part of life. Every day is a new day in Vancouver! Contact EC’s front desk if you would like to be a student ambassador like Regina.


Student ambassador Matheus Lins

“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! Contact EC’s front … Read more

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!
