I was very glad to go to Vancouver with LinguaTrip’s help! Registration and bookings, fortunately, turned out to be quite easy. I didn’t think that everything would be so easy, in fact. I was there for a month and I didn’t regret anything at all! Host family I lived with, the school itself - everything is fine! The school is fine, in particular! ILSC Vancouver School provides a huge number of different trips and entertainment. Absolutely every day, which means you won't get bored even if you want to. I was happy that these trips were often free :) Speaking easier .. learning, teachers, trips, the city ..- it’s all incredible! To be honest, I advised many of my friends to use LinguaTrip’s service. I don’t have even a drop of doubt in my own advice. I am so grateful to you for your help and your work! Everything is really at the highest level! Thank you!...

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!...

I've been there for 4 months doing IELTS course. In fact, the teachers are extremely helpful, nice and professional. They've provided me with certain material needed to achieve a higher score than Which I want obviously. In addition to that, the school has four campuses which encourages you to practice as much as you want ( I saw more than 500 students exclusively at two campuses where my classes were). Also, there is an advantageous feature I should mention which I haven't found at any other school in Vancouver, it's that ILSC offers a unique IELTS course which consists from : 1. ( 9-12 am )Regular classes teaching you Test technique and focussing on four skills. 2. (1-2.30 pm) focuses on two skills you can choose either listening and speaking or reading and writing (I can improvise a speech) According to aforementioned featured, I highly recommend it, to anybody comes to Vancouver for learning English. Thanks ILSC By the way for urgent circumstances I'm going to Montreal, I chose ILSC Montreal once I knew they have a school there....
