Yo estoy muy feliz con mi experiencia con ESL en la escuela EC Montreal, no pude haber tomado mejor decision, le agradezco a Sandra Maldonado de ESL por todo su apoyo desde el principio, luego en la escuela mis profesores han sido los mejores Sobhanm, Peter, Katrina y Fred son mis favoritos, muy dedicados, inteligentes y siempre con las mejores herramientas para hacer de tu proceso uno mas eficiente y a la vez didáctico. Montreal en general es una ciudad encantadora, muy cultural y diversa; y Canada, que se puede decir de uno de los paises con mejor calidad de vida del mundo. EC es una muy buena escuela con un método de aprendizaje adecuado, excelentes profesores y herramientas.
