What school directors said about Kelowna

Dale Lockhart

1. Kelowna is Canada’s #1 resort destination and offers the country’s best weather and mildest climate with the least amount of rain and snow as it is a semi-desert. 2. Over 95% of city residents speak English as a first language so students learn faster in this TRUE immersion destination.

Most recent student reviews of language schools in Kelowna

International Gateway

The thing that I liked most about the school is the relationships between the students and the opportunity to learn about different cultures.
I payed for 7 months of school and I think that it is very unprofessional that I didn't receive a book. Even the photocopies were just bad quality. They repeated more than 15 classes with the same themes and exercises. They put me with lower level students for classes during the winter because there were not enough students to open my level and in my experience if a person wants to learn good English conversation they need to be talking with people better than them in English.
