Name: Munkhzul (Zula) Erdenedagva
City: Ulaanbaatar
Country: Mongolia
Studied at the ELI: IEP Summer 2012 (Term 2), IEP Fall 2012, IEP Winter 2013

It was a priceless experience to study at ELI UBC for 10 months. I still can't believe that my life at ELI is already finished. It was too quick, which means my time at ELI was exciting and fun. In that time, I have met hundreds and hundreds amazing people from all over the world and even met life-long friends.

Acquiring global life experience, learning different customs and cultures, and sharing ideas with people from varied nations were invaluable for me.

I have attended almost all kinds of activities those are organized by CA's. Especially, The International Night is an awesome event. I cooked the Mongolian dishes three times, and created my country board and represented my country.

I lived in downtown area by myself during my studies at ELI. Living far from my family has taught me a lot of things. "Home is not only the place where you were born. Feel the place where you currently live as your home". That concept helped me to live without homesickness.

The teachers and the staff are smart, the CA's and the students are friendly, and the atmosphere and the environment are warm. Of course the students are highly encouraged to speak English everywhere, which was the most important thing to international students.

I am doing a business program downtown. Besides that, I'm preparing for the application to enter into an MBA program in Canada.

The decision to come to Vancouver, particularly to study at ELI-UBC, was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. It is difficult to express all of my great feelings and memories about this place by writing. I am 100 percent sure that you will have one of your greatest moments of your life there, at ELI…
