Je sais pas si c'est moi qui ai été malchanceux mais le métro était souvent bloqué ce qui inclut de longues heures de marche et dans le froid du Canada évidemment c'est plus pénible. A part ça la ville est super même si tout parait loin vu la taille, mais cela veut aussi dire que il y a tout ce que tu veux trouver. Beaucoup de coréens et de brésiliens mais tous très gentils et l'écoles est super avec des infrastructures modernes.

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.

EC, Toronto
Duration: 10 weeks

I’ve been studying English in Toronto for 10 weeks now, and it’s been a great experience. I met a lot of people and got to practice my English. I refreshed my language skills and am no longer afraid to speak the language.

I’m very happy with the school and its location. EC English is a good option, with excellent teachers and a great staff. They are very supportive and helpful.

I like Toronto because it’s a great city – very beautiful and multicultural. You can do all kind of activities here and everyone is very friendly.

Personally, I loved this experience.

They live about an hour from the course centre, whether by bus or metro, and offer a warm welcome, a single bedroom, half-board (breakfast and dinner) along with an enriching language and cultural exchange. The bathroom and common areas of the house are shared with the other members of the family. Staying with a host family means you can enjoy a safe environment and speak English continuously, from morning till evening. Some families offer private bathrooms (extra charge). Once a week, you may use the family’s laundry facilities.

Note: It is compulsory for students under 18 to stay in a single room, to book airport transfers and require a parental consent form. Students should also provide a custodianship letter if requested by the Embassy.
