  • Hello, everyone. I'm Robin and welcome to my video.

  • In this video I'm going to talk about how to make Canadian friends

  • Specifically, how to make Canadian friends in Canada.

  • Maybe you're going to Canada to study English

  • and you want to make some Canadian friends.

  • I'm making this video because a lot of my Korean students...

  • uhh... they have the experience of going to study in Canada

  • ...six months, one year, over one year...

  • They come back - I talk to them... and they tell me...

  • Ahh...they made a lot of friends. They made a lot of international friends.

  • For example, from China, Japan, Taiwan.

  • Uh...maybe some European or South American friends.

  • But they didn't make any Canadian friends. Ok.

  • Uh...and I'm very surprised and shocked...

  • a little bit disappointed

  • because you're going to Canada to live,

  • to experience the culture.

  • Uh....you should interact with Canadians,

  • make Canadian friends, and of course...uh.. their main goal (going to Canada),

  • is to improve their English.

  • Yes, you can improve your English with some international friends

  • But the best way is to make Canadian friends.

  • Alright... so let's talk about that.

  • How do I make Canadian friends and improve my English?

  • First, I have work or volunteer.

  • So if you get a job in Canada or even if

  • you just volunteer in Canada,

  • you're put in a situation where you're interacting with Canadians.

  • It's a very good situation to improve your English quickly.

  • Uh, so I recommend this.

  • But make sure you have the right visas and it is legal.

  • Not illegal, so if you work in

  • Canada get the proper visa.

  • Second is homestay.

  • Now if you go to Canada to study English, staying with a homestay...

  • I put a star here because this is the best

  • way to immediately start interacting

  • with Canadian people because you're

  • going to the homestay family

  • If they're a good homestay family, they will treat you very nice.

  • They will take you places.

  • Uh...and they will... you know... you become part of the family.

  • And this will really help you improve your English

  • and understand the culture.

  • Uhh... but, sometimes there are bad homestay families. ok.

  • A bad homestay family is more interested in the money .

  • And they will have a lot of rules.

  • And they don't want to talk to you very much.

  • And if they do talk to you maybe they're yelling at you.

  • Okay, so you got to be careful with homestay.

  • It's a great experience if you get a good homestay family,

  • but if you get a bad homestay family, you've got to get out.

  • That brings us to roommates.

  • So in Canada, if you're going to live in Canada or study in Canada,

  • you should make a Canadian roommate.

  • You know when I visit Canada,

  • and sometimes I visit my students -

  • Uhh... they have roommates that are usually other

  • Koreans or Japanese or Chinese.

  • Again our goal should be - we want to improve our English

  • and experience Canadian culture.

  • So really try to get a Canadian roommate.

  • I'll talk about more about that in a moment.

  • Online websites, apps. These are good to quickly meet Canadians.

  • I'll talk about that in a moment.

  • Join a club: camping, swimming, taekwondo, etc..

  • Join a class: swimming, piano, yoga, photography, art, etc.

  • These two - really good for...ah... meeting Canadians right away.

  • So a club... clubs are usually free.

  • I had one student join a camping club.

  • She went camping twice a month. She met a lot of Canadians.

  • Uh...she had a good time.

  • I had another student. She joined a yoga class.

  • So she went to Canada to study English

  • after about a month, she joined a yoga class.

  • All Canadians.

  • And she learned a lot of English. She made a lot of friends right away.

  • Ok. The last two very good for meeting

  • Canadians and making Canadian friends

  • and improving your English

  • Alright let's talk more about websites and apps.

  • Uh...these websites and apps work in

  • every country so whatever country you

  • are in you can use these to meet

  • foreigners and make friends or

  • girlfriend or boyfriend to improve your English.

  • Dating apps.

  • Tinder is probably one of the most popular uhh...

  • if you're looking for a girlfriend...

  • Uh...if you go to Canada - you want a girlfriend - Tinder is a good place to start.

  • OK Cupid is another. There are many kinds of dating apps.

  • So when you go to another country, download an app.

  • You can start being connected with Canadian guys or girls right away.

  • Uh...if you're not interested in dating... you just want to make friends

  • I...I recommend Meetup.

  • Meetup is an awesome app. That's why I put the star here.

  • It is awesome.

  • Ah...when you go to Canada, make sure you have the Meetit.. the Meetup app.

  • cause when you check that app, it will show you all kinds of clubs

  • and activities - every day of the week almost.

  • Well in some cities every day of the week...

  • there's multiple activities. It's a great way to meet friends right away.

  • And have fun.

  • Badoo is another app.

  • Uhh...it's... it's meant for friends, but you can make a boyfriend/girlfriend.

  • Uh...of course if you want. But these two are good for friends.

  • Meeting Canadian friends right away.

  • Websites - Kijiji this is Canadian.

  • And Craigslist - this is more international.

  • These are good websites if you want to..uh...find a roommate.

  • Uh...if you want to buy or sell something.

  • So if you want to buy a bicycle or sell a phone,

  • these sites are great to interact with Canadians.

  • Alright?

  • Ahh...when you make your Canadian friends, you want to keep contact with them.

  • And the messengers they use...uh.... Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger.

  • These two are the most common for Canadians.

  • I think Americans, too.

  • Uh...and of course Facebook is very important.

  • You need a Facebook account to keep in...

  • ...keep in contact with your English speaking friends.

  • Uh... if you're from Korea or Japan...

  • and South East Asia - they they don't use line much in Canada.

  • and of course Katalk - they don't use that in Canada.

  • If you meet a Canadian friend in Canada and you said,

  • "Do you have Katalk?"

  • They're not going to understand what you're talking about.

  • They do not use that.

  • You have to use these ones. Really - if you want to talk with Canadians.

  • Ok.

  • My final words.

  • Participate in the foreign culture. It's very important if you go to Canada,

  • to participate in the culture.

  • Uh...if you're from Korea, you could have a lot of Korean friends there.

  • That's good, but you want to try to meet

  • Canadian friends - interact with Canadians and do Canadian things.

  • Do not only observe the foreign culture.

  • Observe is just watching. Ok? And when I visit Canada and

  • sometimes I visit my students...

  • Uhh...I see them not participating in the culture.

  • Actually watching...you know... they stay

  • in their groups with other Koreans.

  • And they go places and they're just watching Canadian culture.

  • Uh...this is not good. We want to participate in Canadian culture.

  • Alright! So I hope this video helps you.

  • If you go to Canada, and you want to meet

  • a Canadian, and you want to improve your English,

  • Uh...there's lots of information in this video.

  • Alright! Good luck see you next time.
