EC Vancouver was very happy to host and welcome Flavio Gerber from Switzerland. He studied General English with us for six weeks and graduated last week. This is what Flavio had to say about Canada and EC Vancouver : Hello everyone, I’m Flavio from Switzerland and I would like to share my experience with you. First of all, I am amazed by the city of Vancouver and its possibilities. There is so much to do and explore, especially in the nature within as well as around the city. Even though there is a lot going on, the atmosphere is always calm and relaxing. In my opinion, EC does a great job of connecting learning with discovering by means of their planned activities and well organised schedules. The staff is extremely helpful and open to help with any problems you might face during your stay. Last but not least, the people I’ve met and the friends I’ve made from all over the world make this whole experience a truly unforgettable one!

We love when our students want the share their experience at EC with the others. Here is the testimonial from Laura Elisa Alves Amorim. She started at EC Vancouver at the end of June this year. When I started making my plans to study in Vancouver, I imagined that I was going only for English classes, but to my surprise, when I arrived there I realized that EC has much more to offer! In my first week, our group went to Deep Cove. As soon I got off the bus, our activity leader took us to the trail through the woods. It was a bit difficult, but when we arrived at the top of the mountain I was surprised by the view. It was stunning! I took so many pictures to show all my friends in Brazil. In my Last week in Vancouver, we went to Lynn Canyon Valley. It is much more than only a suspension bridge. I had an amazing surprise when I saw the river with cliffs and transparent water. People were sunbathing and swimming in freezing water. By the river, it was possible to see the rocks over the water and the trees surrounding the area. The school is amazing and I loved every single moment at EC Vancouver! I will never forget my EC experience! ——- Are you thinking to study English in Canada?

My experience in Vancouver has been awesome; since I arrived it has been perfect! I have met many people from different countries who are now are my friends, and I have been able to visit different places around British Columbia and Alberta like Victoria, Hope, Tofino and Banff. Also I can improve my English with an incredible process in EC because when I arrived six month ago I couldn`t speak, read or write anything! I consider my progress very successful. My plan for the future is to start studying at University and at the same time work in Vancouver. —– Planning to come to Canada to improve your English skills?

Claudia is from Colombia and she is studying here at EC Vancouver, she wants to share with us her experience: Vancouver overcame my expectations, and EC Vancouver too. On my first day, I met about 20 people from different countries, and at the beginning for most of us there was a language barrier, but as soon as we started the classes, (I was in an intensive English course – 30 hours per week) and felt comfortable with the language, we started to make friends, share experiences and know the city. No matter the ages, nationalities or how long they were going to be here. The methodology of teaching in EC Vancouver is completely different comparing with regular English classes, because you are able to move up your level periodically, there are focus classes where you can meet many people, and they are designed to work on special skills such as speaking or writing. In addition, the teachers are very friendly, and most of them have an amazing humor. The EC staff is very kind too, they are always willing to help and even some of them have become friends. Therefore, the classes and the experience there are fun. I am sure that I will not forget my experience in Vancouver. Most weekends I had something to do in the city or close to it. Furthermore, there are a lot of natural parks, mountains for skiing, museums, etc… All the same, the season when you choose to come is really important. I was there part of the winter, the spring and the beginning of summer. I could appreciate how the city changes, how the trees bloom, even the clothes that the people wear. In fact, I made a list with the important places to visit. I was improving my English at …
