How top intensive English programs help students make international friends

Intensive English programs are great for helping you learn

Attending a school abroad is a great way to learn many new skills in English communication and comprehension. It’s also something many students quite likely have never done before. Because of this, they might be a bit worried about whether they will make friends.

Fortunately, there’s no need to feel nervous! Top ESL schools help their students make friends from all over the world. Here are some of the ways they do so.

Small class sizes at top ESL schools help you make friends

Spending each day with a small group of fellow students is a great way to quickly make friends. That is an experience you can look forward to at top ESL schools, which offer small class sizes.

You will quickly get to know everybody in your class, which makes for a nice setting for learning English as well as developing strong friendships. Your fellow students will come from all over the world too. This means getting to know them is sure to be a fun way to learn about many different cultures. By the time you finish school, you can expect to have both new English skills and many nice memories of spending time with your classmates!

Intensive English programs offer fun group trips to interesting places

There are so many fun sights to see in Canada, and most of the time, it’s more fun to see them with friends. The best ESL schools know that their students want to enjoy some of the local culture while they are in the country for their studies. To help them do so, they will arrange group trips for students. At CultureWorks, for example, students take day trips to Niagara Falls, national parks, local festivals, and many more fun places. These are all great opportunities to bond with classmates, so be sure to take part!

Top ESL schools help you enjoy fun days out with friends

Not every day out of the classroom is about going to museums or exciting cultural landmarks. Sometimes, the best thing to do is just have a bit of fun!

Top schools offering ESL programs are well aware of this, and try to organize fun events for their students. That might mean bringing students to the beach for the day, or taking them hiking or skating. Going on one of these trips is a great way to spend time with classmates in a less formal setting, and to have a little adventure. It’s a wonderful way to make friends while enrolled in an intensive English program!

Schools will help students find opportunities to volunteer

Volunteering is a rewarding experience. It can let you spend time working for organizations or causes you care about. It can also be a good way to meet people from outside of your school and make many new friends.

If you want to volunteer while completing an English as a second language program, it’s a great idea to look for a school that will help you do so. A school such as CultureWorks, for example, has volunteer opportunities on campus, and also helps students volunteer in the community. Attending a school that offers these services is a great way to ensure you can find a rewarding volunteering experience and meet many new friends.

Preparing for a Canadian winter: What you need to know when you learn English in Canada

what you need to know about wintertime when you learn English in Canada

When many people think of Canada, they think of winter. Average temperatures can reach -10 °C in January, though individual days can occasionally get much colder. Snow also covers the ground, creating a beautiful winter wonderland. It’s true that Canada’s winters can be cold and snowy, but there is a lot to enjoy in the wintertime, too. Knowing what to expect can help you prepare for a Canadian winter, and even look forward to it!

Here are a few tips you can use when preparing for your first Canadian winter.

It’s important to get the right clothes to stay comfortable

Enjoying a Canadian winter is a truly unique experience, but to enjoy being outside you need to have plenty of warm clothes to keep you comfortable. That means getting a warm coat, hat, and gloves, as well as waterproof boots. You might think it’s silly to wear so much in the winter, but when it is very cold outside and you’re prepared for it, the silliness is worth it!

Warm clothes will help you stay comfortable during the winter

Remember to layer clothes when preparing for winter in Canada

Canadians will often talk about “layering” clothes to stay warm. Layering means wearing lighter clothes such as a t-shirt underneath a thick sweater. This is done for two important reasons. First, the extra layers help keep in heat, allowing you to stay warm even in cold temperatures. Second, layering clothes means that once indoors or near a cozy fireplace, take off thicker layers so that you don’t feel too hot. For these reasons, you’ll want to make sure you “layer” clothes.

Make a list of fun winter activities to try when you learn English in Canada

Preparing for winter isn’t just about making certain you have enough warm clothes to stay comfortable! When you learn English in Canada, you’ll see that winter is also a lot of fun, too.

Skiing, snowboarding, and ice skating are all classic winter activities that you can try while in Canada. There is also snow tubing, which involves sitting in the middle of an inflatable tube and sliding down a hill. As you prepare for your first winter in Canada, it can be a good idea to make a list of all the fun activities you want to try. Would you like to have a snowball fight? Do you want to build a snowman? Writing everything down will help you remember each activity you want to try before the snow melts.

Get warm slippers, books, and other items for days inside

Enjoying winter weather can be a lot of fun, but sometimes it can be nice to enjoy a day indoors too. That’s why when preparing for a Canadian winter, it can be a good idea to get a warm pair of slippers, some books, and movies to enjoy.

Completing an English as a second language program in Canada will also allow you to make new friends from all over the world, so why not see if they would like to play board games together during the winter? You can organize days inside playing board games, card games, or watching movies with your new friends.

Here are five reasons why you should volunteer while you study English in Canada.

1. Students at English as a Second Language School Can Practice English When Volunteering

2. Students in an English as a Second Language Program Feel Good Helping Other Students

4. Students at English as a Second Language School Can Get Experience for their Resumes

After you complete your ESL program at CultureWorks or graduate from one of our partner universities, you may want to start your career.

4 Board Games That Can Help You Practise English at ESL School

Playing board games can help you reach your English goals!
Playing board games can help you reach your English goals!

Do you love board games? We do! We love to roll the dice, pick a card, and move around a game board, because board games are a great way to have fun with friends. With some board games, whether you win or lose, you are even practising English while you play.

That’s why we host board game nights at CultureWorks, a top school for English as a second language (ESL) in Canada. Here you can study hard in classes and have fun in after-class activities like board game parties that keep you practising English day and night!

Here are four fun board games that can help you improve your English at an ESL school like CultureWorks.

1. Play Scrabble in ESL School

Have you heard of Scrabble? In Scrabble, you are given seven tiles with letters on them, which you use to build words. Each letter is worth a number of points based on how much that letter is used in the English language.

You win points when you connect your words to other words on a Scrabble board, or add letters to a word and make it longer. For example, you could win many points for putting T, I, N, and G onto the end of ‘STAR’ to make ‘STARTING,’ a whole different word.

Scrabble is excellent practise for English because you can make very simple words with your letters, increase your English vocabulary, and learn how often different letters are used in everyday English conversation.

2. Play Apples to Apples at ESL School in Canada

In the game Apples to Apples, you have two sorts of cards: Things, which have objects on them, and Descriptions, which describe different objects. On your turn, you put down a Thing card, and everyone else secretly puts down a Description card they think matches that Thing.

Usually, the Descriptions do not match the Things perfectly, and that is part of the fun! The player who put down the best match wins a point. You and your friends in ESL school will have fun comparing the descriptions each player gives to the Thing, because sometimes they are very unusual!

We know Apples to Apples will make you laugh
We know Apples to Apples will make you laugh

3. Play Bananagrams in ESL School

Bananagrams is a lot like Scrabble, except that you do not get points for letters. Instead, the purpose of the game is to make words as quickly as possible!

Each person starts with 21 tiles with letters on them, which they use to make words that are connected together. Whoever uses all their tiles first, wins. This game is very good for practising spelling and using your English vocabulary, because you need to think of words quickly, like you would in a conversation with a native English speaker. It’s like an English spelling race!

4. Play Cranium After Your ESL Program Classes

Classmates you meet in your ESL program will have many different talents. Cranium is a game that tests lots of kinds of skills: sculpting, acting, knowledge, spelling, and more. It is also great for a big number of players!

In Cranium, you roll dice to see what kind of skill you need to use, and then work with your team to complete the challenge on the card. For example, if you pick a drawing card, your team will need to guess what you are drawing.

Cranium is fun because it helps you get to know other people you are playing with, and even if you do not know how to sing or draw something, people will help you learn. This is one of the best parts of ESL school! While you learn English, you also learn about the culture you are in and the people you are with.

4 Ways a Top ESL School Helps Students Discover Canadian Culture

esl school in Canada

One of the most enjoyable aspects of learning another language is that it allows the language learner to immerse themselves in cultures other than their own.
