Canada is the place to study English if you want to meet other likeminded people who enjoy travel as much as you do! SEC can help you set up weekends away and plan other adventures while you’re here studying with us.
6. Canadians are friendly and welcoming
So many students comment on this to me. It can be shocking at first to get asked if you need a hand finding where you are going just because you look a little confused. Canadians want to be as helpful as they can. This is also great for practicing language outside of the classroom. With so many opportunities to interact with native English speakers, it is no wonder that so many students from SEC see such drastic improvements in their abilities!
