About This Center

Immerse yourself in rare natural beauty and diverse cultures when you learn English at the English Language Center in Vancouver, located in the heart of downtown Vancouver - the jewel of Canada's West Coast. Consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world, Vancouver is framed by mountains and beaches, has a thriving art, music, and performance theatre scene, and is a popular location to film both television and movie projects.

When you decide to take English classes in Vancouver with ELS, you will be surrounded by possibility. Vancouver is an outdoor adventure lover's paradise with one of the mildest climates in Canada. Students can go for bike rides through Stanley Park, go snowboarding at Whistler Mountain (the site of the 2010 Olympic Games), or take a weekend trip to the Rocky Mountains or a seaplane ride to Vancouver Island. Magnificent mountains, sparkling oceans, lakes and rivers, temperate rainforests, delicious fresh foods at public markets, and captivating parks make Vancouver one of the most beautiful and enjoyable cities in the world to visit.
