OHC, Toronto
Duration: 4 weeks

I spent one of my best summers in Toronto. I met amazing people that I would have never met otherwise and, even though we had classes every morning, I had time to visit Toronto. For these reasons, I decided to repeat the experience and this time I chose to go to London.

OHC, Toronto
Duration: 5 weeks

I liked studying at International OHC because they have a method of education that is fun, and allows you to interact with your classmates and also because the teachers are involved in their work and constantly evaluate your improvement, so you are in the appropriate level.

I liked studying in the city of Toronto because the city offers the possibility to do a lot of activities and has a lot of young people, a big mix of nationalities and cultures and also because the Canadian people are very hospitable.

OHC, Toronto
Duration: 5 months

This language trip was the best experience of my life! Since my first day at OHC, I immediately felt at home and I knew I would enjoy the Canadian way of life. Although Toronto is a big city, life is very pleasant and never boring. There are many places to visit, like the CN Tower (really impressive), Toronto Island, Little Italy or Chinatown. The city is full of bars and clubs – perfect if you like to party!
br> As for the school, I really liked the concept of the old building with renovated interiors; the atmosphere was great. Teachers are competent and nice; with interesting and gripping courses, learning English is easy.
br> Also, the school organizes leisure activities every day. Studying at IH was a pleasure, as I met many international people and made really good friends. I would like to thank ESL for helping me turn my dream into reality; thanks for organizing everything so well and for being there when I needed you. See you soon!

There is so much to do in Toronto that it would be almost impossible not to find an activity to suit your taste: this city offers everything from rock climbing to sailing to baseball. Our partner school makes it a point to offer a complete program of excursions, sports and cultural activities each week. Toronto is also a cultural melting pot where you can discover the Chinese, Greek, Korean and Italian districts. The city’s location allows for weekend escapes to New York, Boston, Montreal and Ottawa. Niagara Falls all a short day trip away. You can also try camping and canoeing in the magnificent Algonquin National Park. For after dark, the famous Yorkville district is perfect for drinks and dancing. Join a Sol Schools Club to explore your new destination by picking up a new hobby, a new sport or just do something you’ve always dreamed of doing, but never quite got the chance. Be prepared to open your mind to the many new experiences and adventures you will have. Anything is possible is the lively city of Toronto.
