Please see the testimonials from our Parents:
Mrs. Satoe Koeda, an international parent from Japan and China, is living in Coquitlam with her three children, Haruyo, Ito and Tainosuke.
"My children and I love Canada because the air is very clean, and the people are so kind. My children were able to adjust to their new environment without any problems. They have become involved in their school and the community. My son has joined the basketball and volleyball teams at Walton Elementary School. On the weekends, the children take lessons in Kendo and violin. I also love it that Coquitlam has a Japanese School in Lincoln Center and a Manadarin School in Winslow Campus; this allows my children to maintain their culture. I am also studying English with other parents at CIC (Canada International College)”.
A few more words from our students:
"Last summer I came to Canada International College. My English was very poor. I didn't want to talk any more. I felt frustration about my learned English. I couldn't understand any more. Several times I wanted to give up, but the teacher always gave me encouragement. They kept their patience and taught me again and again. They made me have confidence about English. I improved my talking, reading, listening and writing. I really appreciate them. Now, I am not afraid of English. When I study English, I enjoy my time." Angel, Taiwan
"I was poor in English but I am improving little by little. Studying in Canada International College gives me considerable pleasure to the opportunity to learn and it is a good chance to make new friends. I was able to expand my horizons." Yumi, Japan
"I've taken this course since last September and morning and afternoon class, because I was not good at reading and writing English. From the morning class I learned a lot of vocabulary and speaking skills. We had only one class with students from Korea, Taiwan and Japan so I have learned other countries culture, too. We sometimes have a field trip to outside of the class which I enjoy very much with my classmates and teacher. Teachers are very helpful and they teach English to us very easily. I think I chose the right school for me." Kazumi, Japan
