Testimonials

I arrived here on June 30th and I started my classes on July 2nd. On the first day, I met a lot of people and I’ve been spending my time with them since that moment. I really enjoyed going to school because I had a lot of fun with my friends and with my teachers. It was amazing! I also loved this experience because I achieved my goal: speak a lot of English and learning a lot of vocabulary. It has been a beautiful time because I was the only Italian and so I met a lot of people from all over the world.

I stayed here for almost 5 months and I learn a lot. Before I can’t speak very well, and it was not good for me. I really learn in this school and I really enjoy all of my classes because all my teacher are very kind and patient to explain all the questions. In Switzerland I never used to have class in English, just German and French and Italian but I am happy for all the new words I know and have so much words waiting for me.

My time in Toronto was really good. I like so much Toronto because it is big and nice. I went to Casaloma and Island Park. I hope to go to Niagara before I go back and I have been to a boat party is very nice – you can see all Toronto. And I’m sure it is not my last time here in Canada.

I learn a lot during my staying in my lovely city Toronto and I am the winner because I can speak English.
Really nice experience, nice teachers – they help me a lot and counselor too thanks for everything!

After spending 3 months of pure happiness, it’s sad that I have to leave this incredible place with the head full of good memories and magical experiences like Niagara Falls, basketball game, visits in downtown, ice skating and celebrations far from our families like Christmas organized by the school. In addition to that I enjoyed participating in the after school clubs allowing me to learn even more and have a great time. Thanks to this experience I met incredible people (Brazilians, Asians, Russians, Mexicans, etc.) from all over the world that I want and will visit. The supervisors are excellent and always listen to my requests. I definitely recommend to everybody to live the same experience as me but all good things have an end and now it’s my time.
