Student Testimonials – Mar 06, 2020

Some of our students that left last week shared their testimonial with us about when they were having English courses in Toronto. “I choose this destination because this school offers a 30+ class. It helped me a lot to improve my English, especially because I was not confident, and now, thanks to EC Toronto, I’m ready to speak with everyone. I met a lot of friends from Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Japan, South Korea, and also a few French, just enough to meet them in Paris again. In general, the number of students was around 10 in my class. Sometimes less; teachers were great and lessons interesting. I’d recommend this school until B2 level for adults!

Student Testimonial – Eduardo Gava

Eduardo Gava was a student from Brazil who studied in our General English for 1 month. This program consists of 20 lessons per week, each lesson is 45 minutes. He was placed in the Pre-Intermediate level. EC Toronto works on a double bank schedule, so he had classes two days a week in the morning and three days in the afternoon with 2 different teachers. He also stayed in one of our homestays and this is what he wanted to share with everyone about his EC experience:     “I chose the EC because of travel agency recommendation. I am very happy with my teachers Sandy and Christine S.; both were fundamental to my learning. On the first day of class was worried about my understanding of the class, so I went to talk to Sandy and she with her professionalism talked to me after class to calm me down because it was my first day and today I am very grateful to her for that. Christine S. helped me too, because her classes are fun, making learning simple. The most unforgettable memory of EC will be Teacher quality and school structure. My stay in Canada was perfect, from my homestay Jolita, to the last day of school. I would recommend EC to a friend because it is a school that understands the students and makes learning simple. Thank you” We are glad to hear that Eduardo had a great time studying English in Toronto. He made a lot of progress and we hope he will keep practicing his English. EC Online is still available to all our students, for up to three months after their departure.

EC Toronto Student Testimonial – Jorge Gonzalez from Mexico. #ecexperience

People strive throughout their whole life in the pursuit of happiness, but certainly it’s an almost impossible task because people do things that they DON’T LIKE. We should look for what makes us happy. EC English language center in Toronto has taught me this. I’ve met people that I may never have had the chance to meet, visited places that I never imagined I would visit and learned English in the process! I strongly recommend Studying English in EC Toronto to everyone, but especially for those who are broadminded enough to take time for themselves and get real life experience living abroad in a country as diverse and interesting as Canada. EC Toronto has been an unbelievably and unexpectedly great experience so far and the end of the journey will provide many more great memories. Jorge Luis Gonzalez Reyna. Intensive English program in Toronto student.
