inlingua Vancouver offers a very wide range of English Elective lessons in the afternoon for students to choose based on topics, such as current events or business, or English skill functions, such as listening, pronunciation, grammar or writing. Students choose their Elective lessons depending on their level of English, their needs and their skills. Teachers will suggest elective lessons to students at the end of each level. Elective lessons are from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM and from 2:40 PM to 4:00 PM. Some elective lessons are offered only at 1:00 PM, others only at 2:40 PM, and others both at 1:00 PM and at 2:40 PM.

We never run out of ideas for activities. July is going to be a gorgeous month and we have many outdoor activities to enjoy the beauty of Vancouver. What can be better than practicing speaking English while shopping, sightseeing, beer tasting, cheering for your favorite team, or leisurely cycling along at the same time? Exactly… so take the advantage of this month’s student activities to practice English and have fun with your friends.
Did you know that walking, jogging, weight lifting, swimming, dancing and other physical activities can improve your ability to learn English faster, in addition to helping you stay healthy and fit? There are many scientific studies that explain why exercise is good for your brain. Shortly, this is how it helps:
Exercising together is a beneficial activity for you and your friends. It is a great excuse to go out and discover new places, meet new people, and practice your English. Why are you still sitting? Check out our activities calendar, find a fitness centre, look for hiking trails, or do something else that you think is fun!
VIVA Treasure is an outdoor interactive QR code game, to engage pedestrians on Granville Street. Granville Street will become a pedestrian walkway offering performances, art and street markets during summer. Muprime is looking for volunteers to help with this project. This is an excellent opportunity for our students to get involved in the Vancouver downtown community, practice their English, and have fun!
The first VIVA Treasure event will open to the public at the end of this month. Sandwich boards with artistic QR codes (Treasure Codes) will be placed around Granville Street, turning it into an interactive game. When a visitor scans a code they will get content relevant to their time and location. They will unlock Granville Street secrets, fun promo content from local businesses, and prizes. In addition, a range of fun offline activities will be available at the VIVA Treasure booth on the 700 block of Granville Street. These will include multiplayer games, a custom postcard station, and a 4D hologram display. Winners of the VIVA Treasure game will be featured in the Hologram so they can show it off to their friends.
There are many cultural and outdoor activities this Month for international students who are here to learn English. Don’t miss the street festivals, sightseeing tours, sports, and beer/wine tasting tours. There will be many new things to talk about!
