Whistler Realize your dream

By Marianna Cherniuk,


You like skiing or maybe snowboarding? You like to party? Just go to Whistler to learn  English and to do a lot of activities. It’s the best place to live an unforgettable
experience. There, it’s impossible to be bored, there is always something to do.

There are two mountains with 200 hundreds slopes, so you have the choice and the time to discover everything. If you search for adventures, something new, don’t ask yourself too many questions and go to Whistler. It’s really a dream right from when you meet a lot of people, you create links and you share everything with them.

The school is very welcoming, so it’s easy to integrate the first day. There is a really good atmosphere between everybody. You just have class in the morning, so you haveall of your afternoon to go to the mountains.

Every day, I enjoy myself as much as possible because I know that it’s not eternal. It’s a thing to do one time in your life, so go for it and have fun.

English Only!

By Marianna Cherniuk,


My experience here at Tamwood has been indescribable.

I couldn’t have chosen a better international language school than this.  I love the way all the cultures mix, and how we learn about each other, not just among different countries, but also different personalities.  We are all alone at the beginning and that’s what keeps us close: we need each other here.  The fact that the “English Only” rule exists used to concern me, but now I realize how important it is and how much it makes you improve!

What can I say about the teachers: they are all amazing at teaching, and help you with any problem, even if it’s not related to school.  The classes are so dynamic and I learned a lot in one day.

I’ll never forget Tamwood and I promise I will come by to visit whenever I can.
