Nestled between the Canadian Rocky Mountains in the west and the Canadian Prairies of the east, Calgary offers you the chance to really discover untamed Canada. Go wild in the nearby Banff National Park during the summer, where you can try water sports on the lakes, climb mountains or hike to spectacular camping spots. In the winter, strap on your snowboard or skis and glide down Olympic standard slopes with astonishing views. Take and English course in Calgary with ESL and prepare for an adventure like no other.
Calgary city is a cool place with plenty to do outside of study time. After growing rapidly with an oil boom in the twentieth century it has spent the last thirty years diversifying and now has a rich cultural mix with plenty to see and do for visitors. Check out Olympic Plaza, where you can paddle in the summer and ice skate in the winter; it’s a popular hangout for locals and visitors alike. Scale the iconic Calgary tower and you will be rewarded with a view all the way across town to the mountains. In the evening, the bars and nightclubs along 10th Avenue SW come alive so you can burn off any energy left after all the daytime activity up in the hills! Our partner language school in Calgary offers the perfect base from which to explore this spectacular part of the Americas.
