“My experience at the ELC was absolutely amazing! I was impressed with the quality of the structure of the English course from UVic! From day one, when we were submitted to a level test to the last day of the program with a ceremony for the presentation of diplomas and lots of fun among our teachers, Cultural Assistants and classmates! I loved having two teachers, one that focused more on grammar and vocabulary and another that focused more on speaking and listening! All classes were very well organized and I could see my progress in the language every day.”

What's it like living in Victoria?

I had never heard of this town before my program, but when I got there I was surprised! It is a much more beautiful city than I imagined! It is a quiet and peaceful town. Very quaint, clean and charming! It is a city where you can walk safely at any time. The people are polite and courteous. I’d come back a million times over! I am in love with this city!
