It’s play time!

March is filled with great activities for English students. Social gatherings, sightseeing tours, shows, festivals, and more…

Check out our monthly Student Activity Calendar to plan ahead. Our activities coordinator will send out announcements to classrooms each week with the details about how to sign up, meet, and how to prepare for your choice of ESL activities.

Joining the school activities is a great way to practice speaking English in a comfortable, fun, and safe environment.

Soccer and beach volleyball are back on the calendar this month. Pick your favorite activities with your friends and classmates from among many options including sightseeing, shopping, museums, and outdoor activities.

There is no activity scheduled for April 10th because you will need extra time to study English for the final exams. The school is closed on April 18th (Good Friday), but there is a trip to the Rocky Mountains that you can join. Contact the Activities Coordinator for more information.

A classroom is a great place to improve all of your language skills. But you have to use English outside the classroom in our activities if you want to learn to Speak English Now!

Our Activities take place every day after school. Our students play sports, watch movies, visit the beach, watch hockey games, go rollerblading, visit a museum, go skiing or snowboarding, go white-water rafting or just relax in a cafe. We also have free movies on large-screen television.

Our Activities Coordinator and teachers take part in all of our activities. This gives our students the chance to practice their English with a native speaker outside of the classroom.

Never a dull moment! Check out the activities for this month:

We are at the end of another year with great memories, new friends, lots of fun, and countless opportunities to Speak English.

The Christmas Day is on December 24th, but we celebrate it during the whole month in Vancouver. You will notice the Xmas decoration, songs, shopping, and all the related events around the city.

The day after Christmas is the Boxing Day, which is a great day to find the best deals of the year if you can survive the crowd.

Of course we have the shopping and sightseeing tours, and other fun get-together activities in December too. Oh, and the first ski/snowboard activity of this season is also this month! Contact our activities coordinator for the details.


Are you ready for another month of fun school activities? Our epic Halloween Party will be on November 1st, but you should get your tickets at the end of this month. Pay attention to the activity announcements in your classroom to stay updated. We will also have a pumpkin carving competition again this year!
