I am very glad to have chosen Vancouver as the destination for my study. The school is one of the best in the city and the teachers are very prepared and kind. Vancouver is wonderful and fascinating and it offers many sports and naturalistic activities to do. I fell completely in love with this city which has sea and mountains, forests and skyscrapers, and where all people are kind and friendly. There is one word to summarize my experience in Canada: AWESOME!
