Elementary Students Testimonials
Jenny from Korea (Elementary Student Grade 5)
I really like my teacher she is really nice and kind. If I don’t understand what I am learning about she kindly explains about it. I like the principal too and gymnasium and the hallways. In Korea my school was really old, like 100 years old, but here it is very new and decorated. I like the buddy classes, which is when you make a group with Grade 1s, Grade 2s, or Grade 4s. This is good we can listen to the younger kids thinking, they think different things than I do.
Ilber from Turkey (Elementary Student Grade 7)
I like my teachers and friends. My teacher is a great teacher because he is so patient. If I’m sick and I don’t understand he always helps me again. I like track & field. I did long jump. You are running, doing exercise and jumping. In my school we sometimes do school trips, like a science trip or fun trip, it changes, but it’s always fun.
Alex from China (Elementary Student Grade 5)
At school I like the STEM projects because they let us do more hands on things and I like hands on things. I haven’t done as many STEM projects at other schools. I also like this school because they don’t give us as much pressure with the school work which gives me more time to do my hobbies like origami. I like the nature around here in Ladner. It allow us to play hockey outside when in school.

Sona from Japan (High School Student)
I like the teachers because they’re so nice and when I worry about something, they help me. I like homestay program because we can talk about our culture and also we can have an opportunity to speak English.
Cathy from China (High School Student)
South Delta Secondary is located in a small, tight knit community which is great for students to concentrate on studying and volunteering. The school itself has one of the biggest and best fashion program in Vancouver, and competitive sport teams with great sportsmanship. The first responder program is also one of the highlights of the school since it takes students who are interested in going into the medical field a step closer to their goal. The Delta international program has students from diverse backgrounds, and caring and responsible adults who ensure every teenager’s well being and safety. The program also have exciting monthly field trips that allow international students to explore BC and encounter new friendships along the way.
Enni from Finland (High School Student)
In the school I like the teachers a lot. They are really nice and always open to help. Also the field trips with senior PE classes are really fun for meeting new people and seeing new places. In the program the nicest thing is that you are meeting so much new people from different countries with different cultures. Everyone is so different but at the same time everyone is living the same exchange student t life and experiencing it.
Pedro from Brazil (High School Student)
Since the begging of my exchange program, I always felt very comfortable being at Delview, I met a lot of new friends from all over the world and also from here, Canada. I would recommend Delview for other international students without any doubts, the school is welcoming, fun and inclusive. The exchange program totally changed the ‘direction’ of my life. I was able to learn and experience a lot of new things, brought me new friends and many teachers for the rest of my life. It is definitely the best experience I’ve ever been through in my life, all the time here in Canada was worth it.
