Student Testimonial: Andrea Rady

Andrea Rady is a student from Mexico who came to learn English in Canada. Here is what she would like to share about her English course at EC Montreal:   I really like this school because it has really good lessons and teachers. I improved my English a lot. When I arrived I didn’t know much, so I was very afraid to speak with people. But now it’s totally different. Now I know more English grammar, vocabulary, and many other things. It helps me to speak with people. I love it because now I have many friends from around the world (Germany, Korea, Brazil, etc.).  I will recommend this school to as many people as I can because it really has been the best experience. I will remember this experience during all my life. Andrea Rady

Student Testimonial: Bianca Brodbeck

Bianca Brodbeck is a student from Germany who came to learn English in Canada. Here is what she would like to share about her English course at EC Montreal:   I chose Montreal because I wanted to study both English and French. However, I focused on English because I could change my level and improve my capabilities in the advanced class. Outside school, I spent time with my friends from Mexico and Switzerland. Moreover, I kept in touch with some French and Japanese guys who already left Montreal. My favorite EC activity was the “Welcome Pizza” in my second week. It was a great opportunity to get to know other students. Besides studying, I got to know other cultures. In my morning class, for example, we were 3 Christians and 2 Muslims. It was interesting to compare how different our lifestyles were. I liked the fact that no one judged anyone else for his origin or religion. Some of my stereotypes are replaced by the knowledge of other cultures. Bianca Brodbeck

Social activities that inspire!

One of the very popular activities at EC Montreal is when we treat our students to freshly made pancakes. The most recent occasion we did that we happened to have left over pancake batter. A small group of our students that met here at EC Montreal who came to learn English in Canada or French and became really good friends, were interested in how we prepare the batter. Of course we shared the secret: it is store bought. As we happened to have some left over batter we gave it to them to try. They promised to make the pancakes at their next get together and send us the results. And boy di they keep their promise! Take a look at the savory pancakes they put together! Thank you Mariana, Anisa and Nicolas! You guys should take the gastronomy programme at EC Montreal and later on open up a successful restaurant in Montreal!

Student Testimonial: Tom Laureys

Tom Laureys is student from United Stats who came to learn French in Canada. Here is what he would like to share about his French course at EC Montreal:   I strongly recommend EC Montreal. The teachers are professional and capable. They have a deep knowledge of the French language and they know how to explain the grammar and vocabulary effectively. I studied 3 other times in Montreal at ILSC. EC Montreal is head and shoulders above ILSC in the quality of language instruction that you receive. EC costs about $10 per week more than ILSC but the quality is 10 times better, and I learned 10 times more French. My homestay was fantastic she was friendly and accommodating. She cooked healthy, delicious meals. She loved to converse and she helped me with French like having an extra French teacher at the house. Plus it was only 15 minute bus ride to school and very clean and comfortable house. Tom Laureys

Student Testimonial: Elba Lucia Sanches

Elba Sanches is student from Brazil who came to learn French in Canada. Here is what she would like to share about her French course at EC Montreal:   I was in the EC French program for 3 weeks and it was really hard for me to make the first test. I started the program as a beginner and not knowing very well how to use the verbs, so my contact with the other students it was a little difficult. But overall I loved all the teachers and EC staff (lovely, helpful, very attentive and between other qualities). I also found my homestay perfect and very clean. The host mother is very attentive. I loved EC and Montreal and I really had a good time learning and at the same time having fun in classes with my classmates. I will definitely recommend EC to all the people that I know.

Student Testimonial: Elisabeth Korrodi

Elisabeth Korrodi is student from Switzerland who came to learn English in Canada. Here is what she would like to share about her English course at EC Montreal: I choose Montreal because my daughter came to Montreal 10 years ago. At EC I have been learning a lot about grammar. I hope that I could improve my English. My favorite EC activities were the grammar lessons. What I liked the most it was the friendly contact between the students and of course the activities with IKO tours with Marcus and his team, they were very amazing. J Only the long way to commute was sometimes boring. Of course I will recommend EC to a friend. At EC I made new friends from Brazil, Japan, Taiwan and Korea. It has been a very nice and enjoyable time here in Montreal. Elisabeth Korrodi
