Summer School in Comox

Comox Summer CampIn summer, the Comox Valley International Student Program offers opportunities for overseas students to study English and enjoy the wonderful west coast lifestyle and surroundings on Vancouver Island.

The Teacher Leaders are also tour guides and enrich the students’ learning of English through a variety of outings and recreational activities. Students improve their English in the context of meaningful events. This is not only a successful method but also fun! Therefore, every day of the program has a trip into the community of some kind. Then the instruction the following day has at least partial focus on that experience.
