« Ich habe besonders in den kleinen Alltagsgesprächen Fortschritte gemacht. Das Gespräch am laufen halten und auch, wenn nicht alle Vokabeln bekannt sind, über spezifische Themen diskutieren können. Die Kombination von Grammatik am Morgen und Konversation am Nachmittag war perfekt! »

Alle haben mich sehr offen empfangen und ich habe mich direkt wie zu Hause gefühlt. Vor allem mit den Einheimischen kam ich schnell ins Gespräch und konnte so sehr viel über das Land und dessen Bewohner lernen. Kleine Fehler konnte ich schnell durch die Hilfe der Lehrkräfte beheben, die stets motiviert waren und auch für eine super Stimmung in der Gruppe gesorgt haben.

La escuela está perfectamente situada, el tamaño perfecto y buen precio. Sí que hace algo de frío en las aulas El tipo de alojamiento es el ideal, al menos en mi caso, pero si necesita una reforma al igual que una vez al mes debería de realizarse una limpieza general de la casa ya que con las tareas individuales no se llega a todo.

Duration: 8 weeks

I came to Whistler to ski and learn English. The Whistler school is smaller and cool because you know everyone and it’s casual and friendly. The classes are good and the people are nice.

Duration: 22 weeks

The atmosphere here in Whistler is so nice and people are really friendly! At school, while we are learning, we also laugh a lot in class. What I like the most about Whistler is certainly the canadian style and mentality. It is just awesome. About organization, ESL Montreux was very hepful, they gave me indeed all information I needed before coming to Whistler.

IH, Whistler
Duration: 12 weeks

I chose Whistler because I wanted to ski and learn English. I like that the campus is close to everything; the bus stop, dinner places and only 50m from the ski lifts. There’s also a ski locker where I can store my gear. All the teachers are nice and there are dogs to pat between classes, it’s nice to have them around. My homestay family is fantastic. I always eat good food. I would recommend IH Whistler to people wanting to learn English and enjoy the mountain life.

Host family
Staying with a family in Whistler is the best way to learn English and immerse yourself in the Canadian culture. Host families are selected with care by our partner school and are all located within Whistler, the average distance from the school being approximately 4-8km (10-30 minute bus ride). You'll have your own bedroom and you'll be able to choose between half board or full board.

Residence (from 19 years)
Our partner school also offers accommodation in a residence in Whistler. Each of these typical Canadian houses has all of the comforts you need to relax after your English classes, including a fitted kitchen, a dining room, a TV and Wi-Fi. Rooms are either single or double, and meals are not included. The residences are located about 10 minutes away from the school by bus.

Whistler… excitement guaranteed!
The choice of activities is simply enormous. A glittering blanket of powder snow for carving perfect curves or sledding awaits you in winter. In the summer, the crystalline waters of the mountain lakes are ideal for kayaking, swimming or fishing for rainbow trout. From extreme sports (like bungee jumping or glacier climbing) to peaceful walks, anything is possible in Whistler if you love open-air activities. In the evening, the ski resort comes alive to make way for parties. Get ready for a great time!
