Mon voyage à la ville de Vancouver et des études à inlingua était comme un conte de fées. L'école est vraiment génial, car il donne beaucoup de possibilités pour développer non seulement vos compétences linguistiques, mais aussi de développer vous-même, votre personnalité. Quel est le plus important, est de faire beaucoup de grands et inoubliables amis! Étudiants à inlingua Vancouver sont les meilleurs et les plus drôles de personnes dans le monde. En outre, les enseignants y sont extrêmement cool et professionnel. Parler de Vancouver, je peux dire qu'il est l'un des plus belles villes du monde, et si vous êtes jeune et active, vous pouvez trouver beaucoup de possibilités là-bas (à partir des activités sportives à la vie folle de nuit). Ainsi, à la fin, je voudrais ajouter que si j'étais vous et eu la chance d'étudier à inlingua Vancouver et visiter cette ville, j'y vais sans doutes.

"Pourquoi dois-je étudier l'anglais? "Ceci est le début de mon expérience à l'étranger. Au début, je ne l'ai pas ai aucune raison solide pour étudier l'anglais. À mon avis, si vous vivez dans votre propre pays et seulement communiquer avec les gens parlant votre propre langue, l'anglais est pas nécessaire. Mais si vous voulez obtenir un meilleur emploi ou voulez voyager à l'étranger et en profiter, l'anglais est une compétence très importante. En fait, la situation la plus grave est que je ne pouvais pas exprimer ma opinions et partager mes idées avec les autres. je suis très frustré. Un mois plus tard, je suis certainement senti que mes compétences en anglais améliorées. par exemple, je peux comprendre ce que dit l'enseignant et de communiquer avec mes camarades de classe en anglais maintenant. Ces choses sont les résultats que je suis à inlingua Vancouver. je pense que je ne l'aurais pas pu avoir une telle expérience si je ne pouvais pas l'anglais parlé. Si vous pouvez parler anglais, cela signifie que vous pouvez communiquer avec des amis et des collègues de différents comtés. Plus sur , partout dans le monde où vous travaillez, Voyage, et des jours précieux, votre appréciation pour l'anglais va étendre de plus en plus. Ce sont les raisons pour lesquelles je étudier l'anglais ici, et profiter de l'expérience est mon objectif.

Tatsuya Kotani, Japon

Je voulais parler ma propre langue, de temps en temps, mais je toujours essayé de penser et de parler en anglais, à suivre la «seule politique anglais" à inlingua Vancouver. Je crois que cette politique est la meilleure façon d'améliorer votre anglais. Il est facile de se faire des amis à inlingua Vancouver. Parlez-en à d'autres étudiants! Ils se félicitent toujours que tu sois leur ami. Je fait beaucoup d'amis de différents pays. Mon professeur, Katrin, est très mignon et gentil ♡. Je étudié à inlingua Vancouver pendant 2 semaines. Malgré le court terme, je sentais mon anglais améliorée. Je voudrais pouvoir étudier plus à inlingua.

Mihoko Shinoda, Japon

Bonjour mon nom est Sasha. Je l'habitude d'être un étudiant à l'école inlingua Vancouver pendant 6 mois. Ce fut une expérience formidable pour moi. Quand je suis arrivé là-bas, le premier jour, tout le monde était très sympa, je me suis senti très à l'aise, comme à la maison :) Après avoir pris un test d'anglais, l'école ne «pizza party» pour les étudiants, ce qui était une très bonne surprise. Il permet d'avoir des conversations informelles et apprendre à connaître les autres étudiants. La meilleure partie de cette école sont les enseignants étonnantes. Je vraiment apprécié de venir en classe tous les jours. Chaque classe unique était unique; non seulement à étudier des livres mais ayant aussi des activités et des discussions amusantes, partager des histoires, découvrir d'autres pays, tout en apprenant l'anglais. Les enseignants sont également très utile si vous avez d'autres questions sur la vie au Canada. Ils seront toujours vous donner des conseils, et ils seront là pour vous si vous en avez besoin. Je suis toujours à communiquer avec les enseignants après mon diplôme.

Une autre grande chose au sujet inlingua Vancouver est qu'ils organisent toutes sortes d'allers-retours de l'année afin que les élèves peuvent découvrir par eux-mêmes sur belle Colombie-Britannique. Je apprécié mes études à cette école et je le recommande à ceux qui sont en train de décider quelle école pour aller à Vancouver, Canada.

My study abroad experience

For a very long time I had the idea in my head about traveling and at the same time practicing my English abroad. I was considering lots of options, comparing living conditions, climate, nature of different countries and prices. I was very careful and picky about ESL school as I had some previous experience of studding English in London which was just useless waste of money. So as a result I chose co-op program at inlingua Vancouver. It’s a one year program, which is six month of studying and six month of working. It’s a great program since you have a chance to cover a cost of studying.

As a majority of ESL schools in Vancouver, inlingua is located in the heart of Downtown and has good equipment. But what attracted me mostly is inlingua’s unique methodology of learning languages, which I found very helpful. I was lucky with my teachers, and I would like to thank: Awesome Petra, Outstanding Jacob, Funniest Tim and Creative Laura. All of them are competent professionals and interesting persons. As for Vancouver, it’s an incredibly beautiful city especially in spring and summer time. I loved it for its amazing combination of skyscrapers, mountains, ocean water and fantastic nature. As it turned out, this city is so congenial to me, I like its moderate rhythm of life, love of sport and active life style. This program is a great experience for the whole life and I would suggest it for those who are not afraid of challenges and changes.

Everyone can find something personal in this place and fell in love with it, which I guarantee. I can't tell the story about Vancouver without Inlingua.

It was a great pleasure to meet this people. Thank you guys for my best moments. Love you! Cheers!

Arsen Gallosman, Ukraine

What I love about studying at inlingua: I love Inlingua Vancouver because despite a short duration of 1 month for studying here, I was able to make so many awesome friends from all over the world. In my class, for example, we discussed about topics which our teacher gave us. I was also able to learn different cultures in other countries which is really interesting for me. Our teachers are all kind and friendly, and they always gave us opportunities to speak English and corrected our English when we made a mistake. I was able to concentrate on studying English, speaking, listening and so on. This is because not only lessons, teachers and classmates, but also the campus which is so clean and always keeps its temperature comfortable.

I studied hard at Inlingua Vancouver, especially before final exams and presentations. Therefore, I believe my English skill improved so much, and I am very pleased to challenge next steps in my life with my experience in Inlingua Vancouver.

Inlingua Vancouver also has so many different kinds of activities, and I joined a Seattle trip activity. I thought I should have joined other activities because it was such a great experience and I was able to make a lot of friends there as well.

Overall, I was completely satisfied with my life in Inlingua Vancouver. Thank you so much!

Ladies and gentlemen, guys, boys and girls! I am going to tell you about my amazing summer at  the school inlingua Vancouver!

First I’m going to tell you about the inlingua's teachers. All teachers are very good! I liked how they teach. All teachers, whose classes I've been to, gave me a lot of new information! I undoubtedly improved my vocabulary, speaking, writing, listening and grammar skills! On every one of my questions, teachers gave me an answer. So, in the morning classes we learnt something new every day and spoke a lot! The afternoon classes were also awesome and exciting! I had two afternoon classes: Idioms & Slang and Semi private lessons. I learnt a lot of new vocabulary from slang and loads of idioms. On the semi private lesson, we listened to music and improved our vocabulary and speaking!!! So my classes at inlingua were more than cool!!!

inlingua school is one of the best places to meet new international friends and learn something interesting from their cultures. I met a lot of new friends from Venezuela, Brazil, Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, Japan and Spain!!! That was a very good experience for me!!!

Moreover I'd like to tell you about inlingua's activity program and about Vancouver city! inlingua organized some good activities for students every day. Movies, Stanley Park, trip to Victoria and Whistler and some other awesome activities! Vancouver is a very interesting city. You can see some different cultures: Indian, Chinese, Brazilian, American, European...

To sum it up, I want to say a few words! Improve your English, improve yourself, study at inlingua school and enjoy!

Daniel Moseev, Russia

I studied at inlingua Vancouver for 6 months and graduated at the advanced 5+ level. I was taking general English courses in the morning and also one academic course in the afternoon. inlingua has many specific courses for students who want to deal with their weaknesses, interests or purposes to get improved. I joined the "career development program" or CDP for short and got hired by a Canadian company to broaden my working experience and develop my career in an English speaking country. inlingua consultants are very patient and considerate with every student, I appreciated that. Thanks to all the teachers for teaching me very useful English and giving great advice. I highly recommend inlingua language classes to anyone coming to learn English in Canada.

I didn’t know anything about Vancouver or inlingua before coming here, but I think I made a great decision. I’ve found people who seem to be interested in teaching!!!!.. which is not easy to find, I can swear. Vancouver is a bright city... when it’s sunny! My English is improving, I think, even though that’s not easy to realize about. The inlingua Method works, somehow.

Daniela Buitrago C., Colombia

Ce que je préféré à inlingua, c’est la relation que l’on a avec les enseignants. Ils sont vraiment sympas avec toi et essayent de t’aider autant qu’ils le peuvent.J’aime également les deux campus, car ils sont neufs et ont de nombreux équipements que l’on peut utiliser. inlingua organise de nombreuses activités pour les après-midis et week-ends. C’est une bonne manière de s’amuser et de rencontrer un grand nombre de personnes de pays et cultures différents en même temps. Pour en revenir aux classes, il est possible de choisir parmi un large choix de cours: tu peux suivre des cours juste pour améliorer ta manière de parler ou ta grammaire, ou autre en fonction de tes besoins personnels et de ce que tu as besoin d’améliorer.

Willy~Guillermo Gabás Canela, Espagne

Selon moi, inlingua est l’endroit idéal pour apprendre l’anglais. Je pense avoir beaucoup de chance de pouvoir être à inlingua Vancouver. Tout le monde y est gentil et amical. Cela rend mon apprentissage plus agréable. Je me sens comme à la maison. C’est pour cela que je suis resté à inlingua Vancouver pendant 10 mois. Cette école va beaucoup me manquer. Je te recommende fortement d’y aller. Je suis convaincu que tu seras d’accord avec moi et que tu écriras la même chose par la suite.

Kunmoo Ko, Corée

inlingua Vancouver a des profs excellents. Au début, je n’en étais pas sûre, mais après quelque temps, j’ai réalisé qu’il y avait en tout cas trois excellents profs. Je viens de Suisse et en Suisse il est très difficile d’améliorer son anglais. Ce que j’apprécie à Vancouver, c’est le bord de l’eau et les restaurants de fruits de mer tels que Carderos, Steamworks, Joe Forte’s, etc...

Lydia Aebersold, Suisse

inlingua est un endroit très agréable pour apprendre l’anglais, particulièrement si tu veux améliorer ton anglais oral. De nombreux enseignants connaissent beaucoup de choses et répondent volontiers à toutes les questions que tu pourrais te poser. De plus, Vancouver est un endroit de séjour idéal surtout si tu apprécies les activités en plein air.

Vincent ~Han Wei Chen, Taiwan

Evelyne Roels Van Kerckvoorde, Belgique

J’ai adoré Vancouver. Ma famille d’accueil a été incroyable avec moi. J’ai beaucoup appris grâce à elle et me suis fait de nombreux amis de partout dans le monde. C’est tellement bien d’apprendre à connaître de nouvelles cultures. L’équipe administrative est très sympathique et elle m’a fait me sentir comme chez moi. J’ai apprecié la facon dont on m’a traitée ici. Je pouvais apprendre et m’amuser au sein de la même école.
