Hansa Language Centre

The language school Hansa Language Centre was founded in Toronto, Canada in 1969. Toronto is a vibrant city with lots to offer including panoramic views from the CN Tower and the huge 161 acre High Park where students can go for a hike or partake in other sporting activities. With this in mind, it is no wonder that Hansa Language Centre chose this city for its language school location. The school is found in the Downtown part of Toronto only a small walk away from the subway stop Edlington, which is well connected to all areas of the city. Surrounding the school are restaurants of all varieties, bars and shopping options.



The size of the school is impressive, with 55 classrooms and an average class size of 9 students, boasting of 300 lessons available everyday. Along with a number of immersive courses in English including General Language courses, exam courses in both IELTS and TOEFL and private classes, Hansa Language Centre also offers a Foreign Language course in a variety of different languages including French, Spanish, German and Mandarin. Immerse yourself in the Candian culture at one of Canada's oldest language schools!


The school address is: 2160 Yonge Street, M4S 2A8 - Toronto, Canada (see on map)
