Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Every Tuesday the CSLI students meet at the Backstage Lounge, Granville Island - cheap beer.
The teachers were very kind, they spoke clearly, they were also very dynamic. The topics the teachers used were very useful and I learned a lot. I also loved the way I was welcomed, the staff were so nice and I really felt as if I was already studying there for a long time ago, because of the good vibe I felt. It was a very nice experience
