🤩 Global Villager, Isabela, has some kind words to say about her experience with us at GV Victoria! 

🤗 We miss you!


"Global village quickly became my favorite place. Since the first day everyone was welcoming and kind. The teachers make the classes fun and they encourage us to work independently in order to improve every day. Having met many people of different nationalities not only helped me improve my English, it also allowed me to expand my horizons. It is one of the best experiences I have ever had."

Isabela Ruiz Perez, Colombia. -  GEP GV 8 Spring 2023

Quote from @tourismvictoriabc: 

Victoria is honoured to have been named the best city in the world by Condé Nast Traveller’s passionate reader-base. This was one of one of four distinctions bestowed upon Victoria in 2023 from the premier travel magazine's globetrotting readers. Travellers from around the world indulged in Victoria’s farm-fresh food scene, took in breathtaking seascapes along our pristine coastline, and connected with the region’s rugged rainforests from tidepool to treetop and back again. We are thrilled and humbled to be recognized as the best city in the world, and look forward to continuing to create lasting memories for travellers from around the globe."

👋 Say hello to our friend and student Safaa who came to us all the way from Egypt! 

👇 She had a lot of kind words to say about her time with us at GV Victoria, take a look 👀


"Are you looking to learn the English language in a very stimulating environment? Really, Global Village School is the best one in Victoria. I joined a school which was highly recommended for me and I studied there for a month but I noticed that my level had not improved at all. 

I decided to leave it and then I heard about Global Village School and I joined it. 

Actually, I have learned in less than a week more than I learned in the
other school in a month; that is because Global Village School has a very strong curriculum and very dedicated professional teachers in a competitive environment which helped me to improve my English skills quickly. 

At the end Global Village School is not just a school for learning but also it looks like a family home for everyone in the school."

- Safaa, Egypt

💖 Thank you for the kind words, Safaa - We really enjoy supporting you with your academic goals!
