Breaking The Social Media Addiction in 2018

It has been in the news a lot recently.  Educators, Doctors, Psychologists and even the inventors of some of the most powerful social media platforms in the world are ringing the alarm bells on the effects of social media addiction and the overuse of on-line activity on cognitive and social development.  Global Village offers a wonderful antidote to that!  GV provides for a vibrant and dynamic community setting in which direct communication is the norm, authentic international relationships are established, meaningful and lasting connections are made, and personal confidence and socio-lingua skills are mastered -- all while having a great deal of fun along the way!  Join us at Global Village Vancouver in 2018.

Christmas: Elena’s Favourite Time of Year!

Elena, GV Toronto’s Full-Time Activity Coordinator, loves Christmas! “The City of Toronto comes alive with sparkling lights, festivals and celebrations,” Elena explains. “The Santa Claus Parade, Cavalcade of Lights and the Distillery District Christmas Market are great events where thousands of Canadians come together to spend time with friends and family, and I love sharing these traditions with our students.”

A fantastic way to bond with other students is by accompanying Elena to the GV ice skating activity at iconic Toronto City Hall. Whether helping your new friend stand up, or laughing at them falling down, students are sure to make amazing memories together!

“I’ve also organized a full range of indoor activities,” says Elena, “including conversation at a cozy local cafĂ©, a restaurant for Canadian poutine, staff vs. student ball hockey, craft brewery tour, NBA Basketball game, art gallery tour and new this year, a Christmas cookie baking lesson from our Director of Programs.”

Christmas and New Year Programs and Activities at GV Calgary


We are open during the Christmas/New Year season, except for Dec 25/26 and Jan 1. We offer all our programs during this period, because many students find the Winter season a great time to study in Calgary. We have just graduated our first group of students from the Global Competence Certificate and will be offering this again, starting Dec 18. Check out this video to hear from two of our students who recently completed GCC: https://youtu.be/m5Y8NNxpObM

Also, we have a full schedule of activities. Please see Read More.These events combine many GV Calgary traditions, which are free, such as a GV Christmas lunch and brewery tour with yoga, zumba, indoor soccer and toboganning. From ski lessons for beginners at Canada Olympic Parks on the west side of Calgary to trips to Banff, Lake Louse and Drumheller Dinosaur Museum, and the “Club Crawl” on New Year’s Eve, there is so much to do. In Winter, we get warmed up at GV Calgary!
