Best study destination in Canada

We think it’s Kelowna BC. Here’s why:

Not too big, not too small – just right!

Kelowna is BC’s 3rd largest metropolitan area after Vancouver and Victoria, with a population of 195,000. It’s one of Canada’s fastest-growing cities. Most of the population growth comes from people moving to Kelowna from other places in Canada. Kelowna has everything you like to enjoy in a city:

  • Shopping
  • Restaurants
  • Recreation
  • Urban transit
  • Major hospital and other health care
  • A university, a post-secondary college, English colleges
  • Theatres, plays, concerts

At the same time, its size makes it fun, safe and unstressful. Visitors from bigger cities often comment on how friendly Kelowna is.

Climate

Why all the Canadians moving to Kelowna? Yup. The weather is a little un-Canadian: warm, dry summers and mild winters that are shorter than is typical in Canada. Between December or January and March, there’s beautiful dry snow so you can ski, snowboard and enjoy other winter activities, then spring is on the way!

If English immersion is your goal…

…then Kelowna is the place to study. Canada is a richly multi-cultural country, with many languages spoken. If your focus is on English immersion in all parts of your daily life, the best opportunity is in a city with a high proportion of people whose first language is English.

  • Kelowna 87% of residents speak English as their native language

Compare to:

  • Vancouver 57%
  • Toronto 56%
  • Montreal 13% (French as a first language 66%)

Otoño

Realmente, el otoño comienza el 23 de septiembre en el hemisferio norte del mundo. Pero en norteamerica, para muchas personas, el otoño comienza el día después del “Labour Day”, que en Canadá y Estados Unidos es el primer lunes de septiembre, ¡mañana!

En muchas partes de norteamerica, las noches comienzan a ser más frescas, aunque durante el día todavía se siente como el verano. Eso es cierto en Kelowna, donde se basa OK Study.

Después de Septembrrr viene Octobrrr, Novembrrr y Decembrrr. ¡No cómo se escriben estos meses en inglés! Pero la caricatura es divertida, porque “brrr” es lo que la gente dice en norteamérica cuando siente frío.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
