What students liked about LAB - Languages Across Borders, Vancouver
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

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I would say that they will learn a lot, just relax and enjoy
Other comments: It would be nice that in the graduation day they would hire a professional photographer, because I missed a nice memory of that day
You meet people from all over the world ;-)) and learn a lot about their lives and culture; strict "English-only" commitment; lessons are very interactive - no dull moments; teachers and students are very open and welcoming to everyone - even if you're way older than the average student.

Speaking English is compulsory at the school. This is really good because it makes you think in English all the time and talk to your classmates. Really good atmosphere, with teachers and staff. You get to know people from many different countries.
