*The SMC is both a Language Excellence and a Business English Certificate.

Learning English is essential to get into the engineering school that I want to attend. It’s very important for my future because English becomes more and more popular. I came to ILSC to improve my level in English, and to discover Canada, and open my mind to dealing with new cultures. It’s for sure the best experience of my life!

SPRING

FALL

Buds and blossoms start appearing on Vancouver trees as early as February. Meanwhile on the mountains, the ski season often lasts until well into April. Vancouver has the earliest growing season in Canada, but spring is often still rainy and cool, so make sure to keep your warm clothes and umbrella handy this time of year.

Vancouver often stays sunny and comfortable well into October, although temperatures do start to cool off, so when September hits, you can put your bathing suit away. In mid-late October, expect Vancouver’s famous rains to start feeding our lush and beautiful rainforests. Make sure you have warm clothes to bundle up, and don’t forget your umbrella!

SUMMER In summer, students can enjoy lounging on Vancouver’s many beaches, try stand-up paddleboarding in English Bay (the latest Vancouver craze), check out the Fireworks Competition, hike the local mountains or enjoy the city’s many free summer festivals, Canada Day celebrations, and more. Summers in Vancouver are comfortable. Bring a bathing suit, but make sure to have a warm sweater and jacket for the cool coastal evenings.

WINTER Home of the 2010 Winter Olympics, Vancouver is a popular destination for skiers, snowboarders and winter sports fans. The world renowned Whistler Mountain Ski Resort is a 1½ hour drive from the city. Local ski hills, Grouse, Seymour and Cypress are all a short ½ hour drive from downtown. Snow falls on the mountains, but rarely in the city where average temperatures hover around 10°C. There will be a few winter days that hit the freezing point, though, so bring warm clothes and rain gear.

SPRING

FALL

In Toronto’s spring, the flowers start to bloom and temperatures start to warm up, although the weather can still be unpredictable, so be prepared with warm layers. If you want to stay indoors, spring is a good time to go shopping in Toronto’s PATH, an underground shopping complex with around 1,200 stores. It’s also a great time to take in some culture by visiting the many art galleries and museums around the city, or catching a film at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. For sports fans, the Toronto Blue Jays start their season in April, so make sure to catch a baseball game.

In Fall, temperatures in Toronto start to hit a more comfortable level before the snow starts in November or December. Enjoy a walk in the city’s outdoors and take in the amazing fall colours, or catch an international film, and spot some of your favourite movie stars at TIFF, the Toronto International Film Festival that takes place in mid-September. Weather in the fall can be a little bit unpredictable, so come prepared with some warm layers.

SUMMER Summer in Toronto is hot! It’s the perfect time to enjoy the beach, try paddling a voyageur canoe, or head to the water park at Canada’s Wonderland to stay cool. Summer is also a good time to explore some of Ontario’s incredible outdoor landscapes like Algonquin Park or Niagara Falls. In the city, there are street festivals, celebrations and outdoor concerts that go late into the night. Don’t miss the Toronto Jazz Festival in June, and Caribana in July, a week-long celebration of Caribbean culture with non-stop music and dancing.

In the city, get active with free ice skating in front of the Harbourfront Centre, or explore Canada’s great outdoors and try ice climbing or snowshoeing. Get into the spirit of the season with winter festivals, carnivals, and parades, caroling, hockey and a whole lot more! Bring warm clothes and bundle up; there’s so much to do outdoors!

European sophistication meets Canadian friendliness in Montréal, the largest French-speaking city in the world outside of Paris. This metropolis of 3.6 million offers culture around the clock in both English and French. If you’re passionate about the arts, film, food and fashion, you’ll fall in love with the city as soon as you arrive. Old world architecture and new world chic, stylish shopping districts and lush green parks abound in a city whose unique character was shaped by the French, the English, and two centuries of immigrants from more than 80 countries. The ILSC–Montréal campus is set in the heart of Old Montréal, close to the Old Port, and near public transport, parks and more.

SPRING

FALL

Spring brings warmer temperatures and the city is in bloom by April. Spring is still a great time to ski, snowboard or toboggan, though, because the snow will stay on the mountains until well into April and sometimes even as late as May! March to April is also the high season for visiting a “cabane a sucre” or Sugar Shack. Discover how maple syrup is made and enjoy traditional Québécois food, music and dance. In late March, get a taste of this chic city’s “haute couture” at Montréal fashion week—for students studying French, this is the perfect time to sign up for ILSC’s “Le français par la mode et le design” class (French through Fashion and Design). Spring starts off cold, and warms up quickly, so be prepared for any kind of weather.

In fall, the city comes alive with colour as the foliage changes from green to stunning yellow, gold and red. Fall is the perfect time to enjoy a leisurely walk, or a bike ride through the city’s parks and local markets. Dip into the potent night life of Montréal’s café society, clubs, theatres and music venues that fill the vibrant downtown streets. In October, hockey season starts, so make sure to catch a Montréal Canadiens game—Quebecers are passionate about their NHL team whose popular nickname, “the Habs” is short for “Les Habitants,” the French settlers who originally farmed the land along the St. Lawrence River. From September to October, temperatures are still comfortable, but from November to December, you’ll definitely need a few warm layers.

SUMMER

WINTER

Summer is full of music, film, arts, cultural and sports festivals. Enjoy the island heat in Parc Jean-Drapeau, explore the Lachine Canal on bicycle or hike in the Laurentians. In late June to early July, the famous Festival International de Jazz de Montréal enlivens the city with performances by amazing musicians from around the world, and many of the music events are free! Then in July, check out the Circus Arts Festival—the famous Cirque du Soleil was started in Montréal, so this festival is sure to amaze and astound. The city’s balmy comfortable summer temperatures are best enjoyed outdoors, and Montréal offers everything under the sun to keep you occupied in your free time.

Winter offers endless choices for outdoor activities, from snowboarding at Mont Tremblant to snowshoeing, tobogganing or even dog-sledding at Parc Jean-Drapeau during the Fete des neiges de Montréal (Festival of Snow). Lace up your skates and glide around with friends at Beaver Pond on Mount Royal, or indoors at the Atrium. If you want to warm up inside, do some shopping in Montréal’s vast underground pedestrian network of department stores and shopping centres. Of course, Montréal’s energetic nightlife can be enjoyed any time of the year. Bring warm clothes and be prepared for the cold, but don’t let it dampen your spirits, Montréal stays lively no matter what the season!

My initial aim was to improve my English, but after I decided to obtain a French language certificate as well—as Montréal is a bilingual city, I can work in both languages. The campus is situated in the most fascinating place in the city— Old Port. I’ve enjoyed all of my classes and have had a unique experience in Montréal with people from all over the world.

SPRING

FALL

From March to May, San Francisco is often dryer, and warmer than the rest of the country. Spring brings mild weather, and everything comes into bloom. Spring is a great time to enjoy a picnic in Golden Gate Park with friends, or to check out the Cherry Blossom Festival in Japantown. Students can also catch a movie at the San Francisco International Film Festival, or take a boat over to the former fishing village of Sausalito. Baseball season starts in spring, so sports fans can go take in a Giants game.

There is no better place to be in the fall than San Francisco. At this time of year, the leaves start to turn a rainbow of colours, but unlike the rest of the country, where the cool weather is starting to set in, San Francisco’s falls are usually balmy and bright. In the fall, you can still enjoy many outdoor festivals and activities. Students can go for a stroll around Fisherman’s Wharf, or take a tour of famous Alcatraz. Put your scariest face on for Halloween and Day of the Dead festivals in October.

SUMMER

WINTER

In summer, San Francisco’s famous fog rolls in, making the mornings a little hazy, but by midday the fog burns off, opening up clear blue sunny skies. Summer in eclectic San Francisco is abuzz with culture, and students can take in a myriad of music, crafts and art at the many street festivals that take place throughout the city, and the best part is that most of them are free! Summer is also a great time to explore some of the national parks outside the city. Hike the redwood forests of Muir Woods, or take a weekend trip to California wine country. Of course, there’s always the beach, and students can relax with friends on shore, or take a surf lesson and catch a wave.

San Francisco is famous for its year-round mild weather, and in general, you can enjoy most activities any time. However, winter does offer a few extra goodies. Students can escape up to famous Lake Tahoe to enjoy snow sports like tobogganing, snowboarding or skiing. For basketball fans, this is definitely a good season to check out the Golden State Warriors on the court. Make sure to check out the Chinese New Year celebrations—San Francisco has the largest Chinatown outside of Asia so it's sure to be big!

In India, the term “masala,” which means “mix,” is used to describe the spice mixtures that add such rich flavours to Indian cooking. The term could just as easily be used to describe New Delhi, India’s vibrant and bustling capital. New Delhi is a young metropolis, built upon the remnants of ancient cities. A fascinating mix of historical monuments and modern high-tech industry, colourful nightlife and fabulous shopping and dining options, New Delhi is a feast for the senses. It is also a convenient launching point for some of India’s best tourist destinations like the Taj Mahal, Rajasthan and the majestic Himalayan Hill Stations.

Spring Delhi’s spring, from February to April, is sunny with warm days and cool nights. The weather can be a bit unpredictable in spring, but temperatures warm up quickly. Holi, the Hindu “Festival of Colours” happens in midMarch, to celebrate the spring. During Holi, the locals take to the streets for wild celebration as they throw coloured powder at one another. Late spring and early summer are the best times to visit the Himalaya regions, and discover a bit of Tibetan culture.

Summer Summer (April to June) is when New Delhi hits its hottest temperatures. In May it can reach 45°C or higher, and can be marked by dramatic thunderstorms. The Amaltas trees bloom in summer, painting the city a vibrant yellow. In April students should check out the Baisakhi Festival, a Muslim celebration with traditional dancing. Then

in May, the Buddha Hayanti (Triple Blessed Festival) celebrates the birth of Buddha.

Monsoon Monsoon, also called the “Rainy Season” is something unique to a few regions around the world. In July, after the dry heat of summer, temperatures start to drop and then the rain rolls in providing relief from the summer heat. India receives 80% of its yearly rainfall during this season, and although Delhi is typically drier than other parts of the country, you definitely need an umbrella. In July, students can see competitions, dancing, and more at the Mango Festival. Later in the month, the Naga Panchami festival offers a chance to see snake charmers around the city. And in August, don’t miss the Indian Independence day celebrations at New Delhi’s Red Fort.

Autumn Autumn is pleasant in New Delhi. In October, the rain stops, and

days become warm, and the nights cool. This is a good time to get out and explore some of the region around New Delhi. October is also a month of festivals, and significant holidays. Gandhi Jayanthi celebrates the birth of Mohandas Gandhi, and Diwali, the festival of lights, illuminates the city at night. Many religious figures have their own festivals this month and are celebrated through song, dance and theatre.

Winter December to February can get cool in Delhi as the winds blow down from the Himalayas, and though the city never receives snow, a cool fog can roll in. Students can check out the Republic Day Parade in January to see enormous crowds, and if they want to shop or discover the variety of Indian culture, they should definitely plan to visit the Surajkund Crafts Mela, a two week arts and crafts fair that happens in February.

In spring, be sure to check out the Brisbane Festival, an arts and culture event that takes place throughout September and ends with a fantastic fireworks display along the winding Brisbane River. Brisbane’s International Film Festival also takes places in spring. It is warm this time of year, and a good time to check out South Bank beach in the city, or ride “The Wheel of Brisbane,” a 60-metre tall Ferris wheel that offers a spectacular 360-degree view of the city.

Fall has a few fun festivals that you can enjoy. The Future Music Festival tours around Australia and brings many big names in international entertainment to the city. In March, the Bluewater Festival kicks off an exciting Yacht Race, and the celebration includes fireworks, markets and entertainment. Fall temperatures are comfortable, so you’ll definitely want to spend time outside enjoying nature or outdoor events around the city.

SUMMER

Get out and enjoy the sunshine and heat! Brisbane’s summer is the perfect time to visit Stradbroke Island to go sand tobogganing or snorkeling or check out Tangalooma Resort on Moreton Island and hand-feed the resident dolphins. Summer is also a great time to head south to the famous Gold Coast where you can learn to surf or just relax and enjoy the beach. If you want to stay in town, head to Sandgate to try stand-up paddleboarding, or just enjoy the local shopping and culture.

Brisbane winters are a comfortable temperature, perfect for hikes, bike rides or strolls through the city. In the winter, you could go for a hike at Mt. Coot-tha, which is visible from the city or head a little further to Mount Tamborine. Humpback whales migrate past Brisbane starting in June, so make sure to head to the seaside to take a look. While it’s never really cold in the winter, if you want to feel cozy you can visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and hug a koala.

SPRING

FALL

Spring is a comfortable time of year in Sydney, meaning it’s warm enough to get out on the beach and learn to surf, windsurf, or go on a harbor cruise, while also being cool enough to enjoy a good walking tour of the city to check out its many sights. There are also a few good events taking place during this season, including the Food Festival, and “Stereosonic,” an international music festival.

In fall, temperatures cool down a bit, similar to the spring, but you can enjoy the beach pretty much year-round. Aussie Rules Football season starts in fall, so check out this unique contact sport that was invented in this country. Other adventures include hiking in the Blue Mountains or checking out the Jenolan Caves. For a taste of culture, visit the Botanical Gardens for the Autumn Vibes festival, which includes music and dance performances from cultures around the world.

SUMMER In summer, the city gets hot, and you’ll be glad that Sydney has more than 70 beaches for you to cool off at. The summer is also full of arts, music and culture festivals, so there’s never a dull moment. The Sydney Festival takes place throughout the month of January, and brings some of the world’s best performers to the city. On Australia Day, fireworks light up Darling Harbour. The city’s biggest yacht race takes place this time of year, and it’s also a good time to take in a cricket game.

For something a little different, you could check out the Sydney Winter Festival where you can go ice skating and enjoy mulled wine at Bondi Beach while the surfers walk by in their shorts. If you’re really craving winter sports, take a half-day trip out of the city to “The Snowies,” the highest mountains in Australia, for a ski or snowboard trip.
