Many students choose homestays to further increase their exposure to the English language and Canadian culture. Living in a homestay also provides you with the comforts and warmth of living in a kind and supportive family. Living in a homestay will allow you to practice your newly developed language skills with English speakers.
The number of Homestays which can offer double rooms and/or private bathrooms is limited. These rooms are available on a first come, first serve basis. Double occupancy means two people that book together sharing the same room and bed.

"This school is the best one in Toronto that I know. The atmosphere is really familiar and when I came here I was very nervous because I didn’t know Toronto, however this school helped me so much. Also this school has a lot of activities that students are able to enjoy and meet many foreign friends.
Finally there are amazing teachers here that are really friendly and will help you with whatever you want to know."
