Vancouver Aquarium

The Vancouver Aquarium is Canada’s largest aquarium and one of the most visited sites in Stanley Park. It is home to more than 70,000 creatures including dolphins, sea otters, anacondas, three-toed sloths, eels and more. The Vancouver Aquarium is widely respected for its research and marine stewardship, and visitors can learn more about the region’s marine life through the numerous exhibits. Adults and kids alike will love the entertaining and educational “encounters” program, which allows visitors to go behind the scenes and get up close and personal with the animals and the people who train them. This includes feeding, helping train and learning about the habitats and lifestyles of dolphins, sea lions, sea otters, sea turtles and other sea creatures. The permanent marine animal displays are as diverse as the ocean itself. In the Amazon gallery, creatures slither, swim and splash around. Another features 22 species of frogs, toads and salamanders in the Frogs Forever? exhibit, which talks about the extinction facing many of the amphibian species. There are also exhibits focusing on butterflies, Artic creatures, tropical waters, dolphins, otters, seals, the British Columbia coast and more. The aquarium focuses heavily on species native to the Pacific Northwest. Yup, if it swims or lives in an ocean, lake, river or stream, there’s a good chance the Vancouver Aquarium has an informative display around it. Throughout the year, the marine life housed in the Aquarium comes to life in the form of entertaining and educational shows that include the popular dolphin demonstrations, feedings, reef shark performances, and talks that focus on habitats, conservation and more. The various shows are generally scheduled every 45 minutes, and the aquarium also features special events regularly.   Planning to come to Canada to study English?

“I will definitely come back to Vancouver” Dana said.

  Dana, one of our EC students this fall, was in Ontario, Canada, two years ago. “I was really impressed” she said, “Now, two years later, I chose British Columbia, the province where Vancouver is located, to learn English in Canada. Life is what happens, so you have to live! I had to find solutions to be here alone, without any friends as it was planned. I did a 12-day camping trip through the Rocky Mountains and a two-week-stay at EC Vancouver, I stayed in a homestay. The best things together in one vacation: beautiful and stunning landscape, meeting new friends, learning and improving my English. So, I’ll definitely come back to Vancouver! Thank you to all of that people who helped me to enjoy my vacation.”

Nilo from Brazil writes about his amazing experience in Vancouver

Nilo Arthur shares his experience in Vancouver within EC while studying TOEFL in Vancouver. Hello guys! I’m going to write about my fantastic experience in Vancouver and how EC Vancouver made it even better. My name is Nilo, I’m 17, and I spent almost two months in Vancity. Soon you’ll understand why I say it was certainly the best time of my life so far. The reasons why I chose EC came mainly from the positive feedback that I got from friends in Brazil. Organization, close contact to each student, excellent teachers and infrastructure were the main criterias that guided my choice – and yes, I can now confirm that they are true. This trip to Vancity was actually the first time I traveled alone and stayed more than a week far away from my family and friends. In the beginning, I thought I wouldn’t be able to “survive” these 2 months, because I didn’t consider myself as an independent person with enough responsibility to honor my commitments before. Well, I was proved wrong in a couple of days. Soon I made new friends at EC, and, together with the host family, they helped me a lot in the process of becoming independent and fearless. My self-reliance increased a lot, and so did my skills in dealing with people. I never actually missed my life in Brazil to the point of wanting to go back home. When you finally realize you’re in Canada, you just think about enjoying every second there. My classmates were awesome, and they came from everywhere in the world: Switzerland, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Mexico, Sweden, Turkey and so on. The cultural exchange is something unique and fun – you’re going to love it more than you think. Your world knowledge will increase like never before, and so … Read more
