About my great exchange year in Canada.
My exciting 10 months journey a started when I first met my host family. They were so kind and helpful to me and my Italian host brother. We really became along well. Also we did activities like mountain biking, hiking or going to hockey games. The school is really much fun because of the special subjects we don’t have at home like outdoor education or foods. In outdoor education we are doing really much trips for climbing or mountain biking or other outdoor activities. A thing that enjoyed was to meet new people and the Canadian culture. Everybody is really kind and polite to you. The thing I enjoyed the most was the awesome skiing here in the Kicking Horse Resort. In this Resort you can ski everything, from beginner to total expert and the snow is the best i have ever skied.
Golden Secondary School
RMISP is the best international program ever! There were many cool activities that we did during the year and it was so much fun. I'm glad I went abroad to Canada to join this program and study at Selkrik Secondary School. I had many experiences, made local and international friends, and we learned different cultures from each other. Skiing was the coolest sport for me to do in Canada because it is my first time and my town (Kimberley) has a ski hill so I could go every week. The Rocky Rewards trip to Vancouver was awesome. It was a wonderful year for me to be here!
I had the best possible experience over the two years I spent in Canada. You all should just get out there and do as much as possible! Don't be scared to do something wrong and be open to new things. Try to talk as much English as possible. You'll have the time of you life!
Without this program I wouldn't of been able to do so many amazing things in Canada. I was able to do everything I could of dreamed of doing and also things I didn't even knew existed such as sledge hockey. I made so many fantastic friends from all over the world including Canada, people that I will never ever forget.
The best thing about my experience at Selkirk Secondary School was the people I met from all over the world. I recommend the Rocky Mountain International Student Program because it was an experience that I'm going to remember all my life.
There are three things that I really like about Golden Secondary School. One is the basketball that I joined because in Korea we do not have basketball teams. The second thing is that the Canadian students are very friendly to me. The third thing is experiencing new things in school.
The best thing about my experience in the Rocky Mountain International Student Program was the new friends I made and the very different life at school. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to live this wonderful experience.
