My experience at St Giles Vancouver

September 13, 2012 by St Giles

Thank you very much to our student Julien Clerc who studied recently at our St Giles Vancouver school. He wrote us this lovely account of his time learning English in Vancouver with us:

Hello. My name is Julien. I spent 8 months in St Giles Vancouver. And I will tell you about my amazing experience I had here.

My first impression when I arrived at the airport was what a big mistake I made because I spoke just a few words in English. However I took my courage with two hands and said to myself then ok my little Julien don’t be scared, it’s a new and exciting challenge.

Now when I think about this, I think I made the right decision, because I could enjoy plenty of different and sensational things like skiing, walking, bears and whale watching, NHL games and many others.

I started from Elementary with a funny Australian teacher and he gave me the passion to study English. And 8 months after, I am leaving from the Upper Intermediate level.

Everything has changed except the good ambience and the nice teachers.

I met many friends from diverse countries, which for me is the value of gold because I could learn something new about many various cultures. I’ll miss my friends and the good restaurants in Vancouver.

Are you thinking about coming to learn English in Vancouver with us as well? You can find our more about St Giles Vancouver here or you can email us at to ask any questions. We look forward to having you at the school and helping you have a great experience like Julien!
