Canada’s population is wonderfully diverse. More than 40 major cultural groups are represented, with a significant number of Asian communities. There are also sizeable German, Italian, Japanese and Russian communities – all creating a vibrant cultural mosaic in which distinct cuisine, architecture, language and arts thrive. In 2010, Vancouver was the host city for the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, attracting people from all around the world.
Students in our Summer and Winter Camps will be able to visit many popular tourist destinations in British Columbia, such as Stanley Park, Science World, Lynn Canyon, Granville Island, Grouse Mountain, Peace Arch Park, Gas Town, China Town, UBC, the Parliament Buildings and Butchart Gardens in Victoria, to name a few.
Students attending the three-week camps will also be able to join tours to the Rocky Mountains and major cities in eastern Canada such as Toronto, Niagara, Ottawa, and Montreal.
Aside from an intensive English study as provided in our Summer Camps, CINEC offers students in our Winter Camps a truly Canadian winter experience which includes downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing and ice hockey – the number one winter sport in Canada.
Foreign schools can send their students on CINEC’S Student Exchange Program to attend various British Columbia schools lasting from 2 months to a full school year term.
Students attend private and private schools of their choice, subject to screening and entrance examinations, and are accorded the same opportunities as students in Canada, including participation in various local school activities and events.
Living with a Canadian homestay family provides international students with the opportunity not only to improve their English skills by using English on a daily basis, but also to learn about the Canadian culture and share in the daily life of a Canadian family. Students also have the opportunity to enrich the lives of Canadian families by sharing their own culture with a family. As well, homestay families can help international students adjust to life in Canada.
CINEC believes that teachers are lifelong learners. Professional Development and other learning opportunities equip them with the tools and knowledge they need to help students reach their full potential.
CINEC offers on-site training through workshops for our offshore teachers and instructors, providing opportunities for discussion and dialogue regarding innovative teaching strategies and classroom management, as well as enhancing teaching practices. As well, our professional development programs give foreign instructors and teachers in all subject areas the opportunity to observe and participate in actual classroom settings in schools in British Columbia and elsewhere in Canada.
The program not only provides for a wider global perspective in teaching methodology and pedagogy, but also aims to support optimum learning, and enhance professional judgment and decisions that are in the best educational interests of students.
