Victoria in Kanada war für mich der optimale Ort. Es ist eine nicht allzu grosse Stadt mit viel Charme und sehr hilfsbereiten Menschen. Es bietet sehr viele Möglichkeiten für verschiedenste Aktivitäten wie schwimmen, klettern, Kayak fahren,... In der Natur ist man auch sehr schnell und kann somit viele Wildtiere beobachten, was für mich eine komplett neue Erfahrung war. Die Schule ist sehr empfehlenswert. Ich empfand sie als sehr familiär und weltoffen. Das Personal ist äusserst hilfsbereit. Die Schule bietet jeden Tag verschiedenste Aktivitäten an.An dieser Schule waren viele Japaner, Koreaner, Kolumbianer, Mexikaner und Saudi Araber. Der Mix war sehr interessant.

Host family
In Canada, a sense of hospitality is part of the culture of the inhabitants. This type of accommodation will suit students which wish to make the most out of the advantages of total immersion in the language. The families, who are carefully selected, offer a single room as well as full board and live around 45 minutes away from the school. The students enjoy their independence whilst having the opportunity to practise the language in a natural manner outside of class.

The school organises a complete and tempting program of leisure activities that will allow you not only to have fun while discovering the country, but also to get to know other students. These types of social activities also involve plenty of adventure, Canada being a country with a unique natural environment where you can enjoy all sorts of activities and extreme sports whilst contemplating the whales swimming off the Pacific coast. The school also organises excursions to Tofino, Vancouver, Seattle or Whistler.
