Irish Dancing at EC Toronto!!

To celebrate St. Patrick’s day EC Toronto invited a professional Irish dance group to put on a show for us!! The dancing was amazing and all of our students were very impressed. After the show the dance group even taught us a few dance steps. Some of us were very talented and some of us just had fun trying! 🙂

Why is Augusto smiling?

Augusto is smiling because according to him, he’s in one of the best classes ever! Augusto began at EC Toronto on January 7th and has been taking TOEFL ever since, but unfortunately, his last day is Friday March 1st! He describes his experience in TOEFL as “exceeding his expectations”. “Even when I was confused about an answer to a question, my teacher, Andrew, knew exactly the way to get around that question and figure out the right answer. He always had a way and a strategy. I loved this class.” It doesn’t hurt that his teacher Andrew describes Augusto as the “ideal student”, because Augusto always had great energy and a positive attitude. I’m sure Augusto’s hard work will pay off once he takes that TOEFL test. From all of us at EC Toronto, we wish Augusto all the best in everything he does, and good luck on that TOEFL test, your travels, and your dreams. EC Toronto Staff

New Year’s Resolutions from our EC Toronto Students

The new year has started already, so we thought it would be a good time to ask our lovely EC Toronto students about their New Year’s resolutions. WOW – we got responses from 25 of our students! We were happy to see that most of them want to study more. That’s great! Good for them that they are studying at one of the best language schools in Toronto, right? At this point we want to mention that we are offering free workshops for different English levels for our EC Toronto students! The next workshop topics and dates are: Resume Building I on January 16, 2013 Job Interview Skills on January 23, 2013 Resumes & Cover Letters II on January 30, 2013 Pronunciation Practice for Korean Speakers on February 6, 2013 Pronunciation Practice for Arabic Speakers on February 13, 2013 For more information or to sign up please see our student counsellors on the 4th floor at EC Toronto. We are waiting for you! 🙂 And almost all of the students who responded are willing to change to a healthier lifestyle. This is a great decision! Our EC Toronto students also had the chance to add their own personal resolutions. Some of their wonderful answers are: Chisato: Not too much clowning around (But we like you just the way you are Chisato!) Yurie: ‘Keep smiling 🙂 Make many Canadian friends’ (You have many Canadian friends Yurie. Everybody in the EC Toronto office is your friend. :-)) Dario: ‘Be nicer to my parents.’ (That’s always a good and desirable resolution!) Elisa: ‘Stop procrastinating.’ (Oh yes! We think almost everybody has this as her/his New Year’s resolution.) Guilherme: ‘Start to read another book.’ (Yes, you can improve your reading and speaking skills if you read the book aloud.) Yasushi: ‘Find new English skills.’ (Good luck … Read more
