The Explore experience in St. John’s, Newfoundland, is one of the best opportunities ever for a student to learn English. We arrived at Memorial University in July, and we discovered an environment where learning our second language was really encouraged. Instructors were very understanding and were just as eager as we were for us to make progress. There were a number of monitors, and they offered us a lot of activities where we could discover St. John’s and the area while speaking English: watching the sun rise over the Atlantic, going on a whale-watching cruise and on hiking trips, participating in theme evenings… We had all we needed to learn while having fun. The experience was really enjoyable and educational, and the city was totally charming!
