Once you arrive in Canada, you can be pretty sure that you made the best decision ever. Regardless of your plans, Canada is a beautiful country to visit. Here in Vancouver, you can find some of the best examples of Canadian culture. In general, the city offers many choices for all of your needs. One of the most important things is the multiculturalism, because it’s easy to adapt to the new environment in Canada. For me, the city of Vancouver is an exceptional place for a new beginning if you want to experiment with something different. Many factors of a place are important—like the environment, the lifestyle, economy, transportation, health, etc.—but for me, the most important thing is feeling comfortable and feeling like you are a resident of the country. Canada can offer you that feeling, because Canadian people are always so kind and they are open to offering you new opportunities.
My experience at the ELI until now has been amazing, because you can learn a new language and have fun while doing it. I met a lot of people from different countries and I have a good relationship with most of them. I really appreciate that I have them here and that I was able to meet them too. Also, the staff at the ELI are so helpful! The CAs are pretty cool people who are always available to help you. I remember the first dinner with CAs that I went to. All the CAs were incredible. I went with my good friend Yukino, and we were the only two girls, plus Rafael, a Brazilian guy. The restaurant we went to was a Brazilian restaurant. We went with Ray and Tim. They are amazing guys! That day I spent a wonderful time in a good restaurant with interesting people. Our Brazilian friend had good suggestions for what to order, and we also enjoyed the Brazilian environment. I can say that the dinner was a small part of my experience in Canada. I really hope to have more time to explore Canada and enjoy the good vibes that Vancouver provides.
