If you like sports, you can practice almost any sport here. I've learned hokey on ice and now I'm part of the local team, like one more, and I practice near my school. I like the open atmosphere of Canadians and I am learning a lot from this experience, not only the language but the culture, making new friends and learning other ways of living
