Today is the day that we turn 2.

For most people, 2 is not a big number. “Why are you so excited about a second anniversary?” you might ask. “You’ve only been open for two years!”

But for us, it doesn’t feel like it’s been only two years. It’s been two years of learning new skills, bridging local and global communities, and constantly reaching for our best. We’ve laughed and made great friends and a wonderful family. When we’ve made mistakes, we’ve always gotten back up stronger than before. It’s been a lifetime of discovery, and we’re so honoured that you helped us get this far.

From all of us at REV, and from the best, warmest, and proudest part of our hearts, thank you so much. We’re looking forward to spending year 3 with you!

 

 

If you want to come and celebrate with us, we’ll be having a casual picnic at Beacon Hill Park on July 5, from 3:30 – 6 PM. Everybody is welcome! If you’d like, you can bring some snacks or drinks to share.

Hope to see you there!

The sky is blue, the clouds are white, and the sun is golden… summer’s coming! What are your plans?

On Sunday June 17, you can go downtown to enjoy Victoria’s 3rd annual Car-Free Day. On this day, Douglas Street is transformed into a huge pedestrian area (walkers only  – no cars) with food stands, craft booths, music, and activities. You can enjoy walking around, or you can volunteer. (PS – It’s also Father’s Day in Canada, so don’t forget to call your Dad!).

I am really excited about our Open House this Friday, March 9th. Real English Victoria now has 3 unique, full-time paths to English fluency in the Global Leadership English Program: Real Life, Business, and Academic and I am looking forward to telling you all about it here at the school.

You can choose to study everyday English in our Real Life Pathway and feel confident doing almost anything in English. You will learn to talk to medical staff or teachers, store clerks and bankers with confidence while you live and enjoy life in Victoria.

For people who want to be able to communicate effectively and efficiently in global Business, the Business Pathway will take you to the next level of English proficiency. Get experience working with local Victoria businesses on projects that interest you and can also help to build your resume. REV’s community partners can help you get the experience you need to even get a job while you live in Victoria.
