|Field of Study:||English as a Second Language
|Description:||This unique program is designed for seniors who wish to brush up on their English skills and enjoy the most popular tourist destinations while in Vancouver. Seniors who participate in the Golden Experience Program will have the advantage of being involved in an extremely active international school without the pressures of serious study. With lots of personalized attention, seniors will immediately begin to feel more at ease in an English-speaking environment.
Seniors will spend their mornings studying the English necessary for real life situations: basic greetings, using public transportation, getting around the neighbourhood, asking for directions, shopping, making reservations and buying tickets, ordering in a restaurant, and expressing likes and dislikes. The focus will be on survival skills with an emphasis on Canadian customs and culture. In the afternoons, seniors will have a chance to put their English into practice while enjoying Vancouver, visiting the Aquarium, hiking at Lynn Valley Park, shopping at Granville Island Market and enjoying many other sightseeing activities.
