English + Activity (Winter)

Experience Vancouver in the winter! While the city of Vancouver rarely gets snow (the average daytime temperatures range from 0-10° celsius) the mountains nearby get a lot of snow, making it the perfect spot to learn to ski or snowboard. The program offers English classes, sports, recreational and cultural activities and exciting excursions, including snow tubing, snowshoeing, and a day trip to Whistler. Accommodations include homestays, giving students the chance to experience life with a Canadian family.

Weekly Schedule

This program consists of 20 x 45 minute English lessons per week. This includes fun and educational cultural events, sightseeing and social activities, as well as organized instruction in a range of sports, creative, and cultural activities. Excursions include a full day sightseeing tour of Whistler and skiing/snowboarding at Grouse Mountain.
