Tamwood Whistler

There is no comparison with Tamwood Whistler for those looking to hit the slopes after classes. Located in the middle of Whistler town, at the base of some of the best ski and snowboarding slopes that Canada has to offer, students can easily spend their time between the classroom and the outdoors.   

The school is well equipped to make sure students can make the most of their stay in Whistler, with snow equipment storage available exclusively to students to store their snow gear during classes. From the school building, which is equipped with modern classrooms, students can easily access the ski lift. Additionally, during December to May, the school offers English and ski/snowboarding combined classes.

Each week, the Tamwood team has a program of activities to make sure that students can spend their time outside of class practicing their English with fellow classmates. These activities are either included in the course price, or are available at an affordable price. The team is also happy to help students organize their own program of activities. If students find themselves wanting to explore more of Canada, they can pair their study at Whistler at one of the other Tamwood schools in Vancouver or Toronto.

All English professors at Tamwood have a university education and a diploma in English teaching.
