What is English Adventure?

English Adventure provides a unique English language learner experience for international students studying in Canada. We specialize in education and development programs for elementary school aged children.


During the summer we run a small ESL adventure camps where students combine intensive study with afternoon adventure activities such as kayaking and horseback riding.


During the regular school years we operate a homestay for international students enrolled in the public school system. As well as taking care of their daily needs and looking out for their welfare in the school system, we provide after school support, journal writing, guided lessons, and, of course, adventure activities.


Language activities are taught by me, Chris Gunn, the author of Boggle's World ESL. I have over 12 years experience teaching ESL and EFL (English as a Second Language and English as a Foreign Language) including 10 years teaching abroad at the University of Incheon, the College of North East Asian Studies and Sangji University in South Korea. As well, I have over three years experience doing homestays and adventure camps in Canada.
