In order to ensure that your English course is as successful as possible, you need somewhere to relax and recharge after each eventful day. You get to choose between living with a local host family or living in our very own residence, where you'll meet other Sprachcaffe students.
Staying in a homesta will give you an unparallelled opportunity to get to know local people, practise your English as much as possible and engage with the Canadian culture.
This doesn't mean that you won't get opportunities to practise English outside the classroom if you choose the residence accommodation option. Our students in the residence regularly practise English together, and it is often the easiest way to communicate between two students from completely different countries.

Tourism in Ottawa
There is plenty to do while in Ottawa, including winter sports, shopping, visiting markets and museums, exploring the city and surrounding countryside or just simply relaxing. Some of the most popular sites and events in Ottawa are:
- The Rideau Canal: Going through the heart of the city, this canal welcomes ice skaters onto it's thick layer of ice each winter, but as the year progresses it turns into a scenic boating route, perfect for a relaxing summer's afternoon. There's a constant flow of pedestrians, rollerbladers and cyclists crossing paths along the canal's banks.
- Sound and Light Show: This amazing sound and light show captivates onlookers with it's dramatic music and spectacular lighting effects. Gigantic projections on the Parliament Buildings tell the story of Canada during the show.
- Parliament Hill: Ottawa is the capital of Canada and the center of the Canadian government. When visitors arrive they often remark that the city looks no different from any large European city because of all the European style buildings on Parliament Hill.
Geography and Climate
Ottawa has a humid continental climate with an extreme range in temperatures between winter and summer. This extreme range in temperature allows Ottawa to boast a variety of annual activities - notable events include the Winterlude Festival on the Rideau Canal in the winter and the National Canada Day celebrations on Parliament Hill in July.
Culture in Ottawa
Since Ottawa is the nation’s capital, it is overflowing with Canadian culture. The city is home to many famous landmarks, museums, institutions, government buildings, memorials and heritage sites. In order to preserve its beauty and historical relevance, Ottawa has restrictions on building heights. This prevents the skyline from rising above the Parliament buildings.
Besides being the home of the government, Ottawa has many cultural events and festivals scheduled throughout the year. In fact, the city’s festival industry received the IFEA World Festival and Event City Award In 2010.
Shopping in Ottawa
Ottawa has many unique gift and souvenir shops for visitors, and for the more serious shoppers out there, Ottawa is a paradise. Downtown Ottawa offers a wide range of stores, including tons of boutiques and craft shops.
The ByWard Market is the top tourist attraction in Ottawa. It is the premier destination for shopping, dining, arts and entertainment. Every weekend over 50,000 visitors pass through the market. There are over 260 stands where local farmers sell their produce and over 500 businesses. Approximately 90% of travelers visiting Ottawa stop by at the ByWard Market.
