English as a Second Language (ESL) schools can help children integrate themselves easily into Western culture. Many private schools in Canada are well equipped to do this, no matter if the family is currently living in Canada or a child comes to Canada from an international destination.



ESL at boarding and private schools in British Columbia

There are many schools that also offer both boarding and ESL support, and which are also particularly well equipped to support international students arriving from outside Canada. A  boarding school with English as a Second Language instruction offers your child full immersion in North American culture and language. Boarding school also offers you peace of mind, knowing that your children are in a protected, structured setting and are well cared for by professionals.

Providing your child with a foundation in and deepened understanding of English will benefit them immensely as they move ahead with their career pursuits. If you send your child to an English language school for at least three years you will likely be giving them fluency in English. Many private and boarding schools in British Columbia offer highly personalized ESL instruction.
