Known for its natural beauty, Vancouver sits on Canada’s West Coast surrounded by water and snow-capped mountains. British Columbia’s largest city is vibrant with live theatre and music, diverse restaurants, and outstanding outdoor activities. From beautiful parks to spectacular sandy beaches, from Major League Soccer to Canadian football, from memorable museums to art galleries, there is something for everyone. Where else can you snowboard and sail all in the same day?
With its mild climate, friendly people, and multicultural population, Vancouver is home to students from all over the globe Vancouver is safe and easy to get around. Walk or take public transit. Rent a bicycle and ride the seawall around our famous Stanley Park or hike in a rainforest.

Thanks to VIC, I could able to enjoy a wonderful experience with my son Nicolás, learning English immersively while we lived the multicultural environment of the beautiful Vancouver. We have felt supported us at all times by VIC, like family. It was definitely a great choice, I totally recommend them. I never thought learn so much, while we occupied our free time doing tourism and to practice our English even more. I'm sure I'll be back soon!
Studying at VIC was the best experience I’ve ever had. Before I came to Canada I thought “it's going to be hard to learn English and live in a country with a different language”, but I was totally surprised that everyone is friendly and very kind, Thanks VIC for everything you did for me and teaching me English.

It was cool to study at VIC, I felt at home and enjoyed playing with my new friends while learning English. I met other cultures, as well as some words in Chinese with my friend Andy, others in Portuguese with my friend Vitor and even in Japanese with my friend Ana. Vancouver is a beautiful city, I remember the Science World and the Aquarium, but what I liked the most was playing in Whistler´s snow! I want to return soon!
