Testimonials

José Vicente Masía Hervás
José Vicente Masía Hervás
EC, Toronto
Duration: 10 weeks

I’ve been studying English in Toronto for 10 weeks now, and it’s been a great experience. I met a lot of people and got to practice my English. I refreshed my language skills and am no longer afraid to speak the language.

I’m very happy with the school and its location. EC English is a good option, with excellent teachers and a great staff. They are very supportive and helpful.

I like Toronto because it’s a great city – very beautiful and multicultural. You can do all kind of activities here and everyone is very friendly.

Personally, I loved this experience.

Staying with a host family means you can enjoy a safe environment and speak English continuously, from morning till evening. Some families offer private bathrooms (extra charge). Once a week, you may use the family’s laundry facilities.

Note: It is compulsory for students under 18 to stay in a single room, to book airport transfers and require a parental consent form. Students should also provide a custodianship letter if requested by the Embassy.
