  • BM Testimonials"I love KGIBC-CTC so much! It’s not just a college; it’s a big family! People here are so friendly and enthusiastic. Teachers have both extensive knowledge and diligent personality. School activities helped me to make more friends. By taking TESOL and BM programs, I learned how to use English to express my thoughts clearly and communicate with different cultures. If I visit Vancouver again, I will visit KGIBC-CTC again. I love my big family in Vancouver"
