Mwiza Singogo from Zambia

Living in Vernon as an International student has been a new and brilliant experience because you get to meet new people from all over the world and learn about their cultures. Playing soccer has been great and learning in a different country far away from home which became my 2nd home.

Thi Khanh Ly Tran from Vietnam

It’s almost 9 months since the first day that I came to Vernon. Until now I can believe that Vernon and Fulton high school is the best choice for me to enjoy my perfect adventure abroad schedule. I arrived at the airport at midnight. My host family were already there to wait for me. We had a warm greeting and left the airport to come back home. They are a Filipion family with five people live in a very beautiful house. We were talking about our hobbies , our family and my long trip for a while and showed me my room, the bath room and gave me some more guide before we all went to sleep to ready for school in the next morning. Vernon that day is a beautiful city with a nice spring weather. I went to school with my host family and met my international teacher. He led me did a proficiency Math and English exam for a reasonable classification. I met all of the international student at lunch time. They were very friendly welcoming me. A Japanese girl and a German girl led me to take a short tour around Fulton. It’s exactly like what […]

Kanchana Pintakapang from Thailand

I think that Vernon is a great place to live and study. Firstly, Vernon is a small and calm city. It is very appropriate for students to live and study. Plus, it also has some entertainment, such as the mall and movie theatre. The students concentrate at school and pay attention to their studies. Moreover, its environment is very nice. Vernon has clear lakes and many hills. Those things allow the students to be happy living and studying in Vernon.

Carolina Trujillo from Columbia

My Name is Carolina Trujillo and I am from Colombia. Before I came I was very excited because I was coming to Canada, and I would be able to share with people from different countries and cultures. The experience was very good, I think I really learned a lot, not only English, but also you grow as a person, you learn how to be by yourself in a different country, without friends and family, it is very difficult at the beginning, but then you can get use to it and enjoy it. I think it was great the experience, I loved to share with all the different cultures, and people. I came here being only Carolina, but I think I’m coming back home being more than that, a more understandable and responsible person. Thank you for making this possible.

Hi, My name is Marina Fernanda Silva de Oliveira, I’m sixteen years old and I’m from Brazil. I did an exchange program in Vernon, BC during November, 14 until January, 26, 2012. I chose to come to Canada, because I always heard amazing things about the country and because I wanted to learn more English. And I can say that Canada impressed me and everything was better than I expected. I really enjoyed my stay in Canada, It was so good! There were a lot of reasons why I felt this way. But the first and the most important reason was my host home. My host parents were amazing and really nice with me. I always felt that I was in my own home. The school was pretty good too. I went to Clarence Fulton Secondary School in the 11 grade and I loved it. All teachers, staff and students are really cool and friendly and the school did a lot of fun activites with the international students. I did friends here who I never will forget! I think I was lucky for choose go to Canada, because besides canadians who I met, I met lot of people who are […]
