Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Students must not miss any classes even they are in Vancouver. Because they can practice English in the streets but they learn English in a classroom.
Other comments: Suggestion: Could it be possible to open Courses of Canadian Culture every month? So students can practice pronunciation, besides learning grammar and vocabulary. This is because most older people have 2 or 3 week vacation a year.
