Other comments:
I had wonderful time at this school. It was all I had imagined. The teachers are really great, the classes are fun and you look forward to going to class. At this school, they really try everything to make your stay enjoyable. I have seen in more than one occasion that students who had been there for a while and had run out of money helped out at the school and in exchange, were allowed to continue participating in class. So, it's not just about making money, the human aspect plays a major role. You will have fun and learn a lot. The course helped me to overcome my fear of speaking. For me, it was definitely worth it. You can change the classes every week, so if the course content is too easy for you, you can just ask them to switch you to a higher level. I had for teachers. Damian, Derek, Mark and Cynthia. Wonderful teachers. There were many students from Brazil, great people, you will love them. Vancouver itself is a cool city. Very multi-cultural with many many Asians. You can't go wrong with Vancouver and CSLI. I personally definitely go back.
