"VanWest College feels like a family, not just a school. I look forward to attending classes every day! The teachers always encourage us and spend the time explaining the lesson to us. They also share many life perspectives with us. I also love my host family. This period has really greatly improved my English skills!"

"Great classmates and awesome teachers. The classes were quite dynamic and enjoyable. Besides the morning classes, I also had digital communication elective classes. I no longer translate in my head before I speak; English comes out very naturally!"
