Es hat echt viel Spaß gemacht mal für 2 Wochen in Montreal zu leben und eine Art Alltag in Kanada zu haben.Montreal ist sehr vielfältig und vor allem bietet die Ilsc viele Aktivitäten um das Land und die Leute kennenzulernen.Die Schule wirk zu Anfang ziemlich streng aber ist sie gar nicht. Der Unterricht hat Spaß gemacht, wir haben auch mit der Klasse viel unternommen aber dabei auch viel gelernt.

Die Atmosphäre an der ILSC-Montréal ist sehr angenehm und offen: LehrerInnen und SchülerInnen arbeiten kollegial und engagiert zusammen. Die MitarbeiterInnen sind stets hilfsbereit und freundlich. Es werden verschiedene Aktivitäten angeboten, was das Kennenlernen der SchülerInnen untereinander erleichtert. So besteht auch unter den SchülerInnen eine fröhliche und ausgelassene Stimmung. Eine Sache hat mich zu Beginn gestört: Am ersten Tag werden zwei Verträge ausgegeben, die so unterzeichnet werden müssen. Ich bin mir sicher, dass viele der Studierenden, auch aufgrund sprachlicher Hürden, gar nicht verstehen, was sie da unterzeichnen. Im Normalfall würde ich persönlich einen solchen Vertrag niemals unterzeichnen. Doch ist er bspw. Grundlage um überhaupt an Aktivitäten teilnehmen zu dürfen. So ist man gezwungen. Die Familie ist außergewöhnlich freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ich habe mich sehr gut aufgenommen und betreut gefühlt. Einfach perfekt! Die Lage ist etwas weit außerhalb. Gerade mit Baustellen und Verkehrschaos, war der Weg zur und von der Schule teilweise sehr lang. So war der Weg auch schwieriger mit weiteren Aktivitäten nach Schulschluss / am Abend zu verbinden. Gut organisiert, abwechslungsreich und nette Begleitpersonen.
