"Being in GV Calgary has been one of the best choices I have ever made in my life. Not only have I improved my English, but also I made friends from other continents which is actually what I was hoping, when I first arrived in Calgary. I fell in love with Calgary and its wonderful surroundings. The Calgarians are super cool and the activities are 100% fun. Thank you GV Calgary for being part of my journey, and Iʼll see you again soon when I start my postgraduate at SAIT." - Camilo Andres, Colombia, English for Academic Purpose.
