English Courses in Calgary for Adults

Calgary is one of the fastest developing cities in North America. This Canadian city has everything you could want from a major city, minus the stress. The Calgarians' relaxed mentality gives this city a sense of calm unparallelled by other cities of its size. Even though the city has so much to offer, the cost of living is relatively low.

Since the 1988 Winter Olympics were held here, the city has become a meeting point for athletes. Calgary embraces this association and encourages athletes to come and stay in the city while preparing and practising for winter sports.

Banff National Park and Lake Louise lie just outside the city, about 45 minutes away. These natural retreats are well known for their majestic and sprawling beauty. Keeping with the natural atmosphere, each year Calgary hosts the "Calgary Stampede". This festival allows for the 'city folk' to get in touch with their old western cowboy spirit. The festival has become so popular that it now attracts visitors from all around the world!

Geography and Climate in Calgary

Calgary is located near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and gets more than 300 days of clear skies each year, making it the sunniest city in Canada. The city is famous for its friendly locals and beautiful scenery.

Calgary’s climate is usually very dry - not surprising, considering it's Canada's sunniest city. The spring months usually provide the most rain. In the winter, the mountains are usually covered in snow, but Calgary itself receives substantially less. Calgary’s winters are known for a local phenomenon referred to as a Chinook Wind. This wind can raise temperatures by more than 10 degrees Celsius in a single day! Over the course of a typical winter, Calgary experiences Chinook Winds 3 or 4 times for 3-6 days at a time.
