Socio-Cultural Activities

The English Language Program encourages students to practice the language they are learning while having fun!

The Forks

The rich history of Manitoba’s Indigenous people is shared in a walking tour, giving students the opportunity to get to know our province. Students will be given language tasks by our trained staff to tie this activity into previous classroom learning. The Forks is also a good place to try some local cuisine and buy a souvenir or two.

Students will catch a glimpse of Winnipeg’s art scene when they visit The Winnipeg Art Gallery. Viewing the galleries can serve as a backdrop to practice many language skills. Manitoba’s history and culture is on full display and students are encouraged to soak it up!
