My name is Ana Cecilia, and I am from Mexico. My typical day will be going to school, trying new food, watching something on Netflix, and practicing my English. What I like about studying at IH Vancouver is the things that I learn, not just English, but the life lessons because you learn to be by yourself; and you don’t depend on anyone – not your mother, not your father, just yourself. The places that I like to go – it’s the English Bay and Stanley Park. It’s open. It’s fresh. There’s a lot of trees. If you want to study here in IH Vancouver, I would just recommend you to just do it because you won’t regret it. They’re really cool.
