“The ELC is great to study and live in a real university environment. The teachers are very helpful and qualified. The certificate you receive after your program is also very useful for your future CV. The ELC offers a huge variety of free activities and workshops in the afternoon and evening, which are awesome. Very friendly CAs supervise these activities.”
What's it like living in Victoria?
Victoria is a very international place with an uncountable number of nice restaurants. Moreover I’ve met only very nice and helpful people here. The weather is also quite nice. I first thought it would rain a lot here in Canada, but I’ve lived here for two months and it just rained twice. If you like nature, beaches and nice weather: come to Victoria!
Best advice for new students
You’ll meet many people from all over the world. Try to keep in touch with them! Although there may be students from your home country, try to speak English all the time. That’s the best way to improve your English a lot.
