There're different classes based on the levels, including a beginner class. I couldn't speak English well though, I made friends with other students from many other countries. The teachers are friendly and the school is very nice.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
They don't have a Japanese teacher and the class is small. There're few Japanese students. If you want to study English seriously, I recommend this school.

Great teachers, very well organized school, excellent leisure activities (for only a few extra dollars), very good location, free internet access. I can really recommend this school! Booking over 'languagecourse' in Germany can also be recommended - easy, nice contact, no problems. Visiting this school during winter time might be better for improving your english because of smaller classes.

If you are going to be a little time (I was only two weeks), if you come to Toronto on a Friday morning and / or they come back on Monday you can be useful one or two more weekends to visit New York, Chicago, Niagara falls, Quebec, Montreal Otawa, Algonquin Park...
Other comments
The school is very well placed, in full center. The school is small enough for what the environment is family, there are sufficient activities, but not too much. It has enough computers for Internet, but it doesn't have programs multimedia to study.
