CINEC’s short-term programs are designed for students to immerse and experience the Canadian culture while obtaining proficiency in the English language. These programs include classroom instructions, exploratory, and course-related indoor and outdoor activities. Students stay width homestay families for the duration of their stay, immersing them in the Canadian culture and English language environment. CINEC works with various public school boards in the Vancouver Lower Mainland in delivering these programs. As such, foreign students in these short-term programs will have opportunities to mingle and interact with local Canadian students and other international students from all over the world, offering them the feel of a multicultural experience which resembles what is true “Canadian”. Students receive a Certificate of Completion to include in their academic portfolio.
