Tamwood Vancouver

Make the most of your time travelling and exploring Canada by attending one, or all of Tamwood International College’s three locations: in downtown Vancouver, Toronto or Whistler. The Vancouver Tamwood school is conveniently located in the center of the town, just blocks from the Skytrain and Seabus Station.

The Tamwood building itself is located on the third floor of the building, with bright classrooms, a student lounge and a self study area. iPads, laptops, free WIFI and a resource lending library provide opportunities for students to use technology and resources to increase their learning capacity. Microwaves and hot and cold water stations are also provided for students to use. Additionally, the ground floor of the building has a spacious, modern coffee shop and an international food court is located just half a block away for students to share their spare time with their classmates.  

Tamwood’s programs focus on the essential English language skills of grammar, conversation, writing, speaking, listening, pronunciation and vocabulary. These classes help students to see how their English can be used in everyday life.

The team at the Tamwood’s Vancouver school ensures  that their students are able to make the most of their time in Canada with activity programs either included in the course price, or at an affordable cost to the students. Activities to explore Vancouver include theater nights, museum and gallery tours, sporting matches and dinner parties. For those who want to explore further outside of the city, the school arranges trips to go mountain biking, canoeing, skiing and snowboarding and weekend visits to neighboring cities and towns.

All of Tamwood’s teachers are experienced English instructors, holding university degrees and a minimum of one year English teaching experience.
