Chilcotin Holidays

English Study and Application, esl worksheets don't have to just be grammar grammar grammar!

In a wilderness ranch setting with horses and nature all around, have English classes in the morning and English applied in the afternoon on daily ranch tasks. English speaking recreational activities include horse riding, gold panning, Grizzly bear viewing, mountain hiking and others.



Hi, my name is Nina de Wit. I left the Netherlands in the beginning of September to go to an English-speaking country to gain more fluency in English. I did not have much work experience, as I was twenty years old, and when I left the Netherlands I had only been in college for two years. I chose a guest ranch, because I wanted to do something different from my classmates and normal class, with boring esl worksheets. Everybody else went to go and work at a translation agency, like our supervisor wanted us to do. I, however, saw this as a chance to see more of the world and to experience those five months in a place I would feel at home and would be able to learn more than just translating. I found this place at Chilcotin Holidays. Besides me improving my English skills while working in the office, I also did horseback riding, archery, target shooting, taking shoes off horses, and experienced true Canadian wilderness while staying at one of the camps for a weekend. I now know that I can do a lot more than I think and that I can easily rely on myself and my knowledge to survive in a for me, unfamiliar environment. Connecting with the rest of the staff was really easy, since everybody is here to be educated or to experience the ranch lifestyle. You have a lot in common with the other foreigners, since they have not got the ability to speak the language as well as the Canadians either. Besides this, you can relate to almost everyone here, because this place becomes a home away from home. You are here together and together you can make it an enjoyable experience among the esl worksheets. After Chilcotin Holidays, I plan to go back to college and get my degree. After that, I am sure I will return to Canada for more adventures.
