Why Study English in Toronto

For Social and Tourism: If you are visiting Toronto as a tourist and heading for places like the Tower, Royal Ontario Museum or Rogers Centre, taking English classes will improve your experience. Knowing the language of the place to which you are travelling means you will feel more confident while sightseeing and makes navigating the airport, using public transport, and your finding your accommodation smoother and easier. And if you have moved to Toronto and want to make new connections, you can join the ESL (English as a Second Language) Group in North York, Toronto. This English meetup group gets together twice a week to practise English and to allow members to meet new people with similar passions and experiences. You can also join their Monday Movie Nights when they learn conversational English from movies and discuss their opinions about the content of the films.

For Culture: From the Toronto Film Festival in September to Toronto Pride in June, there are hundreds of events taking place in the city all year round. Also, there are many city tours around Toronto where you can see the main sights and attractions while learning about the fascinating history of these places and getting advice on how to fully enjoy your stay in Toronto. These tours are mainly in English, so make the most out of them by taking some classes with us! And if you are a theatre lover, you can enjoy the shows at High Park on Bloor Street or The Flick on Crow’s Theatre. The majority of shows are in English, so make sure to polish your listening skills with Language Trainers first to enjoy your experience as much as possible!

For Work: Toronto is a city where English is the language of work for around 1.5 million people, so taking an English course will definitely improve your job prospects wherever you go. If you are making Toronto your home, then learning English is a great way to help you fit in and feel at ease. There are many international companies in the city, such as Amex Bank of Canada, Accenture, AstraZeneca, Kruger Products and more. All of these top employers ask their future employees to have at least an intermediate level of English, so learning the language in Toronto will broaden your professional horizons in the city!
