Global Village in Victoria is the best school for studying English. I really love this school, the teachers and of course, the friendly Activity leaders. All of the people in school are friendly, benevolent and pleasant. Teachers can help you a lot, and give good answers. I learned many things about Canada, about people, and cultures. My English improved every day.”
