Student Testimonial

Teacher Testimonial

My name is Carla dos Santos. I was born and raised in Prince Rupert, BC, but I moved to Portugal in 1986. I returned to Canada in August, 2012. I’m married with two wonderful daughters, Erica and Ema. I enjoy spending time and going out with my family, discovering lovely Vancouver and the surrounding areas.

I’m a native English speaker and I was an EFL teacher in Portugal for 17 years in various public schools to students from grades 7 to 12. I have been working at EC Vancouver since May of this year and it has been a rewarding experience working with foreign students from all over the world who are willing to learn and improve their English. Not only has it been a fulfilling experience for my students but for me as well, as I have learned a great deal from them regarding their different and unique cultural backgrounds.

Singing, reading, watching TV, listening to the radio and speaking, regardless your knowledge of English, are great learning tips which will make you, in no time, more confident and willing to improve and learn even more. Being able to have the opportunity to live and study in an English speaking country, no matter how long you decide to stay, is actually the best way to improve your skills because English is the air you breathe during your stay.

My favourite visiting place in Vancouver is Stanley Park where you can walk or bike ride along the seawall and while you are there you can also visit the Vancouver Aquarium. In the Summer, English Bay is the place to be for swimming, sunbathing and lots of fun.
