Vancouver is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in Canada.
One of the world’s ‘most liveable’ cities, Vancouver is neatly nestled between mountains and the North Shore. Blending a sophisticated city feel with outstanding sports and adventure activities, it is an ideal location for English language students looking for a little of everything - from culture and history in the urban streets of Gastown, to the natural beauty and thrills from Vancouver’s Lookout over twinkling lights and boats rocking in the harbour and sea. Outside the classroom, Vancouver has an abundance of delights and ways to immerse yourself in the language and culture of Canada. Explore Vancouver’s diverse scene in the city’s bustling Chinatown, before an afternoon of shopping on the fashionable Robson Street.
The colourful stalls of Granville Island Public Market are the perfect place to lose yourself, and they run late into the cool nights during the summer. Or for a little peace and quiet, escape to the sunken gardens of Queen Elizabeth park or write postcards home at the Bloedel Floral Conservatory. Award-winning for its ‘green’ ethics, Vancouver is a clean, coastal playground with a lively fusion food culture, from sushi to coffee houses and the popular restaurants of Ossington Avenue, providing something for everyone.
A modern and safe cosmopolitan hub, it is also conveniently located for nearby Victoria and the vibrant ski resort of Whistler, renowned for its breathtaking landscape and gastronomic scene. The US city of Seattle is also within easy reach. For education, fun, sun and snow - Vancouver has it all!
