Tamwood's English school in Whistler is located in the centre of North America's number one holiday resort destination, and is only two hours by car from Vancouver. Only steps from ski lifts, and world class bike park and hiking mecca, our school offers students the opportunity to learn English in the morning and ski/snowboard in the afternoon in the winter, and bike, hike or swim in the summer.

The school address is: 301-4204 Village Square, V0N1B4 - Whistler (Canada).

Students liked about Tamwood Language Centre, Whistler
Teachers and staff from the school in general were very concerned about the students and not only in the academic sense, but they also tried to offer recreational activities suited to the tastes of each one.

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: You have to investigate well the options for accommodation in Whistler and not discard any option because if a minimum of two people are coming for a month or longer, the option of an aparthotel is more desirable if you book it with time to get a good price.
Other comments: I loved to stay in Whistler Tamwood and I would repeat it without any doubt if it were not because there are many more places in the world I want to visit.
