Why Canada?

Canada is the second largest country in the world. It’s one of the most outstanding countries in terms of geographical diversity. First and foremost, Canada is full of adventure and advantages for those wishing to study there. Some of these advantages include:

  • Quality and standard of living is among the highest in the world
  • Educational system recognized for excellence and consistent with our European systems
  • Friendliness and hospitality of its people
  • Cultural wealth
  • Safe environment and landscapes

The United States and Canada are vast countries, with vast geographical distances. The car is the main means of travel, and public transportation networks are generally underdeveloped, with the exception of certain major metropolises. International students coming from Europe, where public transport networks are more developed, will have to adapt to this difference when they study in North America, and may have to rethink their travel habits by planning their routes according to the transport options available.

Our partner schools are located in the communities of Dauphin, Roblin, Grandview and Gilbert Plains. These small towns offer a warm welcome to foreign students, who quickly become an integral part of community life.

The schools

The Mountain View district covers a large geographical area in the heart of Manitoba’s vast prairies. It comprises 17 schools, including 4 high schools (Grades 9 to 12). The schools are small, making them ideal for personalized attention, rapid integration and making friends.

Young Canadians study for a minimum of 12 years as they do at home. This program offers foreign students the opportunity to attend a local public high school. In the Canadian province of Manitoba, the primary and secondary school system is divided into 3 cycles: Early Years (Grades 1 to 4, from ages 6 to 10), Middle Years (Grades 5 to 8, from ages 10 to 14) and Senior Years (Grades 9 to 12, from ages 14 to 18). High School covers the 4 years of the Senior Years, i.e. the upper secondary level.

The school year is divided into two semesters. As a foreign student, you can join a class for a semester or the whole school year.

There are two different school systems in Canada: the semester system and the linear system. In the former, students take 4 courses in the 1st semester and another 4 in the second, while in the latter, they take 8 courses throughout the year.

In many Canadian schools, the choice of subjects is vast. It’s a unique opportunity to discover new fields or perfect a favorite subject.

Some courses are offered for one semester, so students have the opportunity to change subjects midway through the year.

Choice is just as important in sports, cultural and social activities. School will be a unique opportunity to develop your skills in subjects and activities you’ve never done before. But it’s also the perfect opportunity to integrate into Canadian life and get to know people your own age.

Canadians are well-known for their hospitality, their tolerance and openness.

Families are carefully selected by the district’s accommodation service based on their genuine desire to host a young foreigner and share their culture with them through everyday life. This service visits the families’ homes and ensures they can provide the participant with a balanced and welcoming environment.

There is no typical family profile. Each one is unique and reflects the society and lifestyle of the country you have chosen. The family hosting you may have children or not; they may be a blended family or a single-parent family, a single person whose children no longer live at home, retirees, or younger individuals. It is not the composition of the family that matters, but rather their availability and motivation to share their culture with you.

The local coordinator is an experienced person who knows the host families and schools. They are in contact with each individual student at least once a month to ensure that everything is going well.

He/she is available to answer any questions that students may have. Once there, they can assist with different approaches and are able to react quickly should any urgent problems arise. They are the main point of contact on site.

An emergency number will be sent to you in case of any urgent problems you may have.

In order for your stay to go as smoothly as possible and for you to be well informed about the various elements of the program, you will have the opportunity to attend an information and orientation meeting organized by Easy Languages in Brussels, at the end of May / beginning of June. This meeting allows Easy Languages students to meet and exchange questions and experiences with each other and with the Easy Languages team. It is also during this meeting that the final administrative formalities are initiated.

If you do not reside in Belgium, we can organize an online connection for you to attend the meeting live.

Another orientation meeting takes place in Canada in the first few days after your arrival. You will be contacted by your local correspondent, who will be able to answer all your questions regarding your stay and its progress.
