Testimonials

Happy students.

“In the school, this course was challenging, the teachers were very good, the atmosphere excellent, and the students came from the whole world. Staying with a host family is really the best way to be sure to speak English and improve your skills since you can talk about everything, otherwise, they were very friendly so I felt like at home. Vancouver, the best spot ever, is a bustling city, there is always something to see, do, or places to visit whether during the week or in the weekend, different neighborhoods with different cultures.”

“For me, SSLC is one of the best language schools in Canada. From the first day onwards, I felt comfortable there. The staff is really friendly and always available. I also liked the EPE course: my teacher was great and the lessons were very interesting. I significantly improved my English. My Canadian experience will remain one of the greatest things in my life, forever engraved on my memory! I can say that I am really happy I met such friendly people and made such rapid progress in English!”

“My experience in Vancouver was fantastic. I took the EPE course there and discovered cultures that were totally new to me with the other students. I met people from Latin America, Asia, Europe… I stayed at the school residence. With my roommates, we shared unique moments, like a real family. The locals are welcoming and relaxed. Thanks to SSLC, I came back home with my fluent English.”
