Here's what an ESL Instructor had to say about our ESL package:
"I was delighted to learn that a classroom package
is also available. The combination of audio and ... read-along handouts
allowed my class of second language learners to follow and understand
the text more easily. This was no small challenge in a group that included
a wide range of language levels and abilities. The students enthusiastically
scored it as "interesting" and "useful".
The histories and stories which are well-researched, clearly presented and
enriched with area appropriate interviews give the listener a wonderful sense
of place. I think every new and even not so new arrival to Vancouver, visitor,
immigrant, international student or resident should take advantage of these
