Hello July 14th New Students! Hello everyone and welcome to Beautiful British Columbia! Here at EC Vancouver, we welcomed many students from different backgrounds and nationalities to study in our amazing school. The weather was great, the students were lovely, and the tour was refreshing. It’s always great to walk in downtown Vancouver because the city always has different popups and events planned throughout the weeks and months. Sunday Activity at EC We did ice-breakers before the walking tour to get everyone in groups and to make friends. Speaking is an important aspect of practicing English. After the walking tour, we all went together to eat lunch at White Spot. White Spot is a Canadian restaurant and a BC local favorite. Eating lunch together is a great opportunity for everyone to learn more about different cultures and to speak to different people. So, we thank you for joining the Sunday activity and hope that you learned a lot about our city, rules, culture and etiquette! Vancouver is a great place to study and live because the culture is accommodating to the various ethnicities, sexual orientations and backgrounds.
