“I studied at the ELC for more than 17 months, which is a long time! I have never enjoyed studying as I did at UVic. My English skills have significantly improved. At the ELC I learned not only English but how to be responsible about a group of people, how to make decisions and how to manage my time. Thank you ELC at UVic from deep in my heart. I will never forget my time here.”

What’s it like living in Victoria?

There are many features that made me love Victoria, one of them is how people are so friendly and kind. Also, the climate is wonderful especially in the summer. As a photographer I really like the Inner Harbour especially to watch the sunset and take some pictures there. Finally, Victoria has many historical building which took my breath away when I saw them for in the first time.

Best advice for new students

Keep speaking English even with people who can speak your native language! Go out with your friends as much as you can to discover Victoria because it has special places which you'll never find in a different city.
