Message from the School Director

Welcome to Victory ESL! We are located in Abbotsford, the city in the country, which is only about 20 minutes from Langley or Chilliwack. We aim to help students focus on their speaking skills, while also helping students with their listening, reading, and writing skills.  This is because we want students to communicate well with other English speakers, so they can be able to pursue their goals.  Our ESL classes focus on both communication and content. Our goal at Victory ESL is for English to be of practical use for all our students. I am confident that your experience at Victory ESL will be extremely helpful and rewarding for you and for others.

“It was an amazing ESL class with teacher Victor because over half of all of my classmates got jobs as a result of the ESL class. It was very helpful for me because the ESL class let me become more confident and know how to prepare for an interview. I appreciate Victor for teaching me and helping me to find a job!”
— Ray Wang (Taiwan), Chilliwack ESL Student
“Thank you Victor for everything. Now I have two jobs: one at McDonalds and the other at Superstore because of you. I think your ESL class was really useful for me and the other students in the class.”

About | Mi Ran (Seoul, South Korea) - Victory ESL Student | Abbotsford ESL Classes | Abbotsford English Classes |

English is an incredibly fantastic language. Before my lessons at Victory ESL, it was a punishment for me. I do like to cry without a serious reason :), but the first year in Canada had the risk of flooding :) It started from a terrible tension, preventing me from answering the most common question “How was your weekend?” Yes, it was not easy to control my grammar, vocabulary, and finally my unruly tongue. However, each new lesson in the class allowed me to be more confident, more relaxed, and even happier. It was a real pleasure, when I was able to avoid saying just “yes or no” and actually adding something after the word “because”. Now, I understand that I can enjoy the English language in a process and it will be endless! Thank you, Victor!
