EC Montreal’s Annual Gingerbread Housing Making Activity!

EC Montreal held its annual Gingerbread house making activity this afternoon.  We set up each table with a kit that includes the gingerbread cookies, icing sugar and candies. The groups were formed, and the activity began!  The students enjoyed creating their houses together and making sure that they didn’t fall apart.  It was so nice to see all the students interacting with each other while practicing their English and French.  It was also nice to see them getting into the holiday spirit!  They even burst into song, singing Christmas songs! The students displayed their final houses with great pride!  When the activity was over, they all dug in and enjoyed their delicious creations! When you choose to study at the EC Language School in Montreal, you are booking more than just a language course, you are booking a memorable experience and a world of lifelong friendships!

I liked the teachers and the classroom.   Wataru Fujisaki From Japan I have learned English at EC.  I think speaking and listening is a task for Japanese people.  We have learned English for 6 to 10 years in school back home, but we never get the opportunity to speak English.  My purpose was speaking and I am satisfied to speak English because my friends who know my first English skills said to me “you are crazy about improving your English speaking”.   Francine Tromm From Brazil I have known EC school from my other experience in Canada and it was very nice because of that I chose EC again.  I think that I improved a lot, most as a speaker.  The first day, the Sunday activity, was very nice to get to know other people and friends.  I loved my accommodation.  It … Read more
