This program is designed for those who wish to learn English first, and how a large farm operates in an English-speaking context.

Internship in the Canadian Rockies

In Vancouver, the first 4 weeks include 20 hours of English classes, and plenty of free time to visit and discover the local culture. Students stay in homestays to strengthen their language skills and have a real immersion experience.

After the first 4 weeks you will go to your ranch where you will participate in all the activities of your host family: you will be able to ride their horses, drive their tractor, participate in daily chores, etc.

But it's not just about agriculture. It is above all a human exchange, a cultural experience that you will live during this internship. Participants will be immersed in the heart of Canadian culture. You will accompany families on their neighborhood visits, their races, or events such as rodeos or festivals.
