Our ESL student Dany shared his experience and thoughts about our school. We’re so happy that he learned a lot and had a good time at the same time. That’s what we are here for!

Ladies and gentlemen, guys, boys and girls! I am going to tell you about my amazing summer with Inlingua school in Vancouver!

Firstly, I’m going to tell you about Inlingua’s teachers. All teachers are very good! I liked how they teach. All teachers, whose classes I’ve been, gave me a lot of new information!
I undoubtedly improved my vocabulary, speaking, writing, listening and grammar skills! On every my question teachers gave me an answer. So, in the morning classes we learnt something new every day and spoke a lot! Afternoon classes were also awesome and excited! I had two afternoon classes:
1) Idioms&Slang

2) Semi private lesson

I learnt a lot of new vocabulary from slang and loads of idioms. On semi private we listened to the music and improved our vocabulary and speaking!!! So my classes at Inlingua were more than cool!!!

Inlingua school is one of the best places to meet new international friends and learn something interesting from their cultures. I met a lot of new friends from Venezuela, Brazil, Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, Japan and Spain!!! That was very good experience for me!!!

Moreover I’d like to tell you about Inlingua’s activity program and about Vancouver city! Inlingua organized some good activities for students every day. Movies, Stanley Park, trip to Victoria and Whistler and some other awesome activities! Vancouver is very interesting city. You can see some different cultures: Indian, Chinese, Brazilian, American, European…

To sum up, I want to say a few words!
Improve your English, improve yourselves, study at inlingua Vancouver and enjoy!”

The last BBQ of this summer is today. Put on your sunscreen and come out to play! There will be burgers, pop, chips, games, lots of sunshine and fun as usual.

Don’t forget that there is a $200 fine for smoking on beaches and park grounds in Vancouver. You can either benefit from this and keep your lungs healthy by not smoking, or walk up to the street to do it.

Most of your classmates and English teachers will be at the BBQ today. Practice your English while having fun!

I would like to share an English writing exercise that our student Koko wrote last term. Her teacher Troy was very happy with the result of this assignment. Koko is already in 3B now!

 

ESL student Koko with her ESL teacher ElizabethI think there are advantages and disadvantages learning in the country where it is spoken.
In my case, I’m studying English in Canada, and I’m very satisfied with my decision.
First, I’m going to tell you about advantages. One advantage is that we can be taught grammar and pronunciation by a native speaker. In fact, I was able to catch myself many times. Another advantage is that we can make a lot of friends from other countries. I made many Brazilian friends. I’m so happy to have met them because they persuaded me to go to Brazil. On the other hand, there are also disadvantages. For me, the biggest disadvantage was concerned money. I had to save money for over 1 year to come to Vancouver. Even though there are disadvantages in terms of learning English in an English country, I recommend going to Vancouver, because there is a terrific school called “Inlingua” there!!
