Trend College, Kelowna
Trend College is well-known in the community and has an excellent reputation. The education our students receive is second to none, and we have proved that since its beginning 13 years ago. We are located in the heart of downtown Kelowna - close to banks, restaurants, shops, drugstores, the postoffice, Kelowna Library, Kelowna Museum, Waterfront Walkway, City Park, Okanagan Lake and much more - all within a 2-8 minute walk. Kelowna is a safe, clean city and one of the most desired cities to live in within Canada! Vineyards line the valley and the seasonal fruit is plentiful. For International Students, it's the perfect place to study! Our students learn quickly as great care is given to encourage each one to pursue the goals and purposes in coming to Canada. Our International department averages 30-35 students (presently running at 42), and the domestic department of our school averages 125-150 students.
ESL Program Introduction
Our ENGLISH ONLY POLICY is strongly enforced at all times. We focus on Conversation, Grammar, Pronunciation, Presentations, Reading, Writing, TOEFL & TOEIC prep, Listening, and Introductory Business for International Students (IBIZ). Our staff and instructors are personal and friendly. Social activities include the following: Winter - snowshoeing, curling, skiing, skating, ranch sleigh rides; Summer - golf course putting, boating, tubing, beach volleyball, soccer, football , barbques, pancake breakfasts; Fall - apple orchard tours, wine tours, corn roasts, salmon run tours; Spring - maple fest (sugaring-off festival) and many city activities. Our international students are able to meet and mingle with the Canadian students on a daily basis. Once every 8 weeks our students participate in domestic classes; allowing the students to audit the class, ask questions regarding the course and meet the instructor. This is a great opportunity for our international students. Since we are a busines/technology based school, our students have the opportunity to use any of our computer labs - all which have FREE Internet access; plus, the labs are a great benefit to our ESL department on a daily basis.
