ILSC Vancouver 
Duration: 3-month course + 1-month internship at ILSC Vancouver

ILSC Vancouver is a great school. The teachers are brilliant, many activities are organised and you meet tons of people from everywhere in the world! Vancouver is a city which is very very easy to love, but very difficult to leave... everything is close-by (shops, night clubs, restaurants, etc.) and public transport is really convenient! I improved my English a lot! Great experience!

ILSC Vancouver
Duration: 6 months

I spent 6 fabulous months in Vancouver and I plan to go back there as soon as I can! I started my trip with a 3-month intensive course. Then, the school arranged an interview with an architects practice looking for an intern. I spent my last three months there and it gave me the opportunity to adopt the Canadian lifestyle and use my English all the time. I got really involved in the daily life of the company and I am now very comfortable speaking English.

ILSC Vancouver
Duration: 3 months

Vancouver… even in the winter, the city is truly beautiful. Canadian people are open-minded and very friendly. I had the chance to stay with a lovely host family, who went out of its way to make me feel comfortable in Canada. “Best homestay in Vancouver!” My internship: an amazing experience. Great colleagues, pushing me to improve my English, interesting work. Add to this the visit of Vancouver Island, the Art of Native People and snowboarding in Whistler... and you get something simply unique!

Host family
Canadian families are known for their warm welcome and for making their guests feel right at home. Host families live in the city’s residential areas. This offers a certain quality of life, but which means students must use public transport to get to the school. Students stay in single rooms and have half board or full board meals provided. This option is ideal for immersing yourself in the Canadian culture and for practising English in all of the situations of everyday life. 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 (+ 18 y.o.). In this case, you can still use the family's kitchen.
