This English program was amazing! I really enjoyed learning English here and my English has been improved with the help of teachers and volunteers. I love my teachers, who are friendly and supportive. I have had a great time with my friends from all over the world. This learning experience will stick in my memory forever!

What's it like living in Victoria?

Living in Victoria is wonderful! Victoria is so beautiful that you can enjoy fantastic views almost everywhere. There are great markets, restaurants and all kinds of leisure facilities, which provide me with convenience. Local people are friendly and nice! If given the chance, I’d like to spend the rest of my life in Victoria.
