SELP is a three or four-week program of language and cultural study in Vancouver. The program gives students an opportunity to improve their English, learn about Canadian culture, and take part in exciting recreation activities.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the program is suspended for summer 2021.

Small classes taught by experienced ESL teachers will work on developing English communication.
Instructors or cultural assistants take students on a series of exciting outdoor adventures such as kayaking, a one-day trip to the Whistler ski resort or a visit to the Vancouver aquarium. Students also visit museums and Vancouver’s ethnically diverse neighbourhoods.

Homestay accommodation is optional and are an important part of the language immersion program. Students stay with carefully selected English-speaking families.
