« Ho fatto necessariamente dei progressi perchè non essendoci italiani ho dovuto parlare inglese sempre quindi ho acquisito maggiore confidenza con la lingua. Non ho fatto progressi di listening nè di vocabolario perchè non ho potuto fare abbastanza pratica. »

Les professeurs sont à l’écoute, dynamique et sympathique. Ils basent l’apprentissage sur la communication et l’echange. Un bon moyen pour progresser. Le choix est diversifié. J’ai put visiter à plusieurs reprise les US et le French Canada via les agences à l’ecole... très bon rapport qualité prix.

Super experience.L’école est très bien placé, bon programme, personnel d'encadrement de qualité et excellents professeurs. Classe de 14 à 16 personnes.Moyenne d'age autour de 35/40 ans.Une mixité exceptionnelle qui contribue fortement à la richesse de cette experience. Excellente technique d'enseignement.professeurs complémentaires et adaptés au profil des + de 30ans. Première experience en Homestay assez catastrophique: logement à plus de 60mn de l’École, très mal desservi en bus, logement sale et surchargé, peu d’affinités et d’échanges avec la personne qui habite le logement (Linda Foster)Mais l’école fut très réactive et m'a proposé un nouveau logement qui fut parfait!Ravissante maison au nord de Toronto, à environ 30mn de l’école en bus puis métro.Logement spacieux et propre.Famille adorable, on se sent intégré de suite.Échanges avec les parents et les enfants variés, riches et intéressants.Repas: parfait, bon, copieux, variés...Je recommande à 100% la Famille Bell, ils sont juste exceptionnels ! Experience tres riche et tres interessante sur le plan profesionnel et personnel.je n'hesiterai pas à repartir avec votre organisme.

Mon séjour linguistique s'est bien passé dans l'ensemble mais quelques points no satisfaisants à souligner: Dans la famille d'accueil, c'était pas agréable parce que le but de ça c'est d'avoir un temps d'échange et de dialogue avec les membres de la famille d'accueil ce qui n'était pas ok pour moi. Je voyais la dame maximum une heure par jour et c'est le moment où elle fait la cuisine pour le dinner, elle ne mange Presque jamais avec moi soit elle regarde la télé ou dans sa chamber entrain de téléphoner....Ma chamber n'a jamais été nettoyé pendant tou mon séjour et les draps non changés....Sinon en ce qui concerne la provision de nourriture je n'avais aucun souci en rapport. Elle mettait la nourriture à disposition en quantité et en qualité... J'ai beaucoup aimé l'école et leur façon de dispenser les cours cépendant. Aussi la multiplicité des nationalités permettait de diversifier les cultures donc une approche plus intégrée d'apprentissage.

You’ll stay in a single room with bed linen provided and share the bathroom with the family (a private bathroom can be reserved for an extra charge). With half board, you can take advantage of breakfast and dinnertime to chat with your hosts and work on your English conversation. Families normally live about 35-45 minutes by public transport from the language school, with a maximum journey time of 60 minutes.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and as such, there are tons of things to see and do! Get your dose of culture at the Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario, or if you’re a thrill-seeker, check out Canada’s Wonderland, an amusement park to the north of the city. Old Toronto and the Entertainment District are perfect for a leisurely stroll, with a stop at St Lawrence Market to sample local goodies like freshly baked bagels and apple fritters. Canadians love their coffee, so take advantage of Toronto’s cool cafés on every corner. If you’re in town in September, get tickets for a movie during the Toronto International Film Fest, and make sure not to leave without taking a day trip to see the majestic Niagara Falls.
