Esl learning, do something different!

Winter is here at the ESL Wilderness Ranch, the first snow of the season is on the ground but this is not stopping our students from riding! If anything, the horses seem to enjoy going through the snow.

The ESL Wilderness School is open all year, some of the activities may change but there is never a dull moment !!! There is always the chance for esl learning at our unique Wilderness ranch!

Winter in the Chilcotin Mountains is something special, either we have snow or the days are sunny, crisp and clear. Rain is rare here so we do not suffer from the usual depression that affects most city dwellers.

When the sun rises in the morning, the mountain tops are the first to feel the rays of sunlight. Soon the horses will move into the open to feel the warmth of the new day, an eagle flies to the top of a tree and inspects it's domain and a new day starts.

Winter on the ESL Wilderness Ranch gives our language students the opportunity to try different activities. With snow covering the ground, the horses have no grass to eat so we have to bring in hay for them. The students learn a whole new set of English vocabulary by giving each other directions and instructions during the unloading of the hay from the delivery truck, they are always using their esl learning and esl vocabulary in their day to day activities! When they came here to study English, few of our students expected to be driving a Backhoe!

On Saturday, December 10th there was a lunar eclipse. Because we are up in the mountains, the air is clear and there is no ambient light to spoil the night time view. It is also very possible to hear the wolves howl at night.
