Laura Elisa Schwander From Switzerland: “I met many nice people…”

Laura Elisa Schwander is a lovely young woman from Switzerland participating in EC Montreal’s English for Work programme which combines General English with a business English elective in the afternoon.  Sadly, this is Laura’s last week at EC Montreal.  Here is what she wanted to share about her EC experience:

I chose EC Montreal because Canada was my favorite destination and after comparing Toronto and Montreal, I thought Montreal would be the better option.  The lessons were very varied, consisting parts of speaking, writing and listening.  Besides the school, I met many nice people, mostly from South America, but also from Japan, Korea and Europe.  I appreciated the cultural exchange because you can learn about lives in foreign countries.  After the lessons, we could meet in town to discover the sights of Montreal, such as the Old Port, Mont-Royal or the Notre-Dame Basilica.

My favorite EC activity was the trip to Quebec City and the Independence Day we celebrated on Wednesdays in our student lounge.  That was a memorable stay which I will never forget!
