This is a short composition from one of our Brazilian students.  Andressa has been studying at inlingua vancouver since April. This composition was written for her final exam, June 25th.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Learning a language in a country where it is spoken:

Studying English in an English country is better than learning English in your country. For example, here in Vancouver I’ve been able to improve my English since my first day when I was asking for help to find my lost cellphone inside the airplane. At inlingua Vancouver we have native speakers teachers and this fact helps us to understand and speak words correctly, like “Canadians”.

One of the negative aspects is that you have to stay away from your family and friends. So if you are not used to living without your parents, probably your first month will be hard.

In my opinion, learning English in Vancouver was the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. Because I studied English in Brazil for 4 years and I didn’t know how to speak English. And now, in just 3 months in Canada, I’m able to speak and understand English easily and quickly.”

Commercial Drive is a great place to cruise around and explore during nice spring days and evenings. “The Drive” is always lively with it’s Italian spirit. There are many local or international students, artists, and bohemians walking around the Drive, spending time at one of the many coffee shops or restaurants. You can check out the public events on www.thedrive.ca. You can find many ethnic cuisines and try different flavors on the Drive. It might be a fun student group outing. June 10th is a great day to visit the Drive because it’s Italian Day and there will be lots going on!

Great news for our international students and interns! From now on, temporary residents (students and temporary foreign workers) currently residing in Canada with valid status can submit their application for a new temporary resident visa to Ottawa. The visitors had to submit their application in US formerly. This solves the problem of all those people:

  • students on visitors permits who previously would have to go to the States to get a study permit,
  • students who wants to apply for a temporary work permit to get into a Study and Work Program after they come to Vancouver,
  • who couldn’t upgrade to an internship program if they didn’t have an American visa.

Contact your counselor if you need any assistance about the visa procedures.
