Greystone College’s TESOL Diploma Program is divided into three modules. Module A focuses on methodology for teaching speaking, listening and pronunciation, linguistics, pedagogical theory, material analysis and development.

Host family
Canadian families are known for their warm welcome and for making their guests feel right at home. Host families live in the residential areas of Vancouver, which offers a certain quality of life, but which means having to use public transport to get to the school.

Guests stay in single rooms and have half board or full board provided. This option is ideal for immersing yourself in the Canadian culture and for practising English in everyday situations. It's also the opportunity to make friends for life in Canada. For more flexibility, it is also possible to book accommodation without meals included. In this case, you can still use the family's kitchen.

Residence, apartment, hotel
Other accommodation options in residences, shared or private apartments or in hotels are also available. The majority of those are located in the city centre, close to the school. Availability and pricing are provided upon request; please contact us for more information.

GEC Viva Tower residence (for ages over 18)
Apart from a beautiful view over the city and the Pacific Ocean, this residence offers self-catering apartments with twin or single rooms. It's just a 15-minute walk from the school and steps away from Davie Street, where you’ll find plenty of bars and restaurants. Each apartment has 2 bathrooms, a living room and a kitchen, as well as free Wi-Fi throughout the building. Towels and bed linen are included, there are free laundry facilities and the common areas are cleaned once per week. The residence also has a gym and a sauna for you to relax during your free time.

Make the most of Vancouver’s enticing mix of vibrant city and astonishing countryside. ILSC’s activity program encourages you to discover the city that is sometimes called “the Hawaii of Canada”. But this is “Hawaii Plus”... the nearby mountains offer superb skiing and snowboarding opportunities in the winter months and hiking during the summer. Mountain bike along the wooded trails of Stanley Park or simply breath in the fresh air of British Columbia.

For a change of scenery and to sample world- famous coffee, Seattle is just a couple of hours away. But there is so much to enjoy in and around Vancouver that you may not even find the time...
