Vancouver Language Co-p Program - Details
The Vancouver Language Co-op Program at Vancouver English Centre combines English language study with a work experience program in Vancouver Canada.
Vancouver English Centre offers the Vancouver Language Co-op Program to international English as a Second Language (ESL) students in Vancouver, Canada. Students complete work experience practicums with Canadian companies after studying English at Vancouver English Centre. The objective of the co-op program is to help ESL students improve their business English and learn more about Canadian business. The English courses make up the first half of the Vancouver Language Co-op Program. The last half of the program is the work experience practicum at a workplace in the Vancouver area.
The practical work experience that interns gain on the job helps them learn more about how Canadians do business, as well as the English language. Vancouver practicums are arranged to complement the education and career interests of the interns. Practicum assignments have been successfully completed in various Vancouver organizations and companies, including banks, accounting firms, publishers, and clinics. The VEC Vancouver Language Co-op Program runs year-round and is available to most international ESL students who have advanced English language abilities.
Interns do not receive remuneration when choosing an specialized language practicum, but they will most likely be placed in their professional field or area and will be treated with the same respect awarded all other employees at the workplace. General language internships students are usually placed in the hospitality, tourism and retail industry.
Language Co-op practicum assignments are in or near Vancouver, Canada. Vancouver is a beautiful city with spectacular scenery and a pleasant, moderate climate. Many people believe that Vancouver is the most attractive city in Canada. Vancouver English Centre is located in the heart of downtown Vancouver. For students who request them, we also offer general language practicum in Banff & Canmore.
