What we like about the school

  • The oldest language school in Toronto founded in 1969
  • Excellent location in the heart of Toronto 2 minutes way from the subway station
  • Every afternoon free organized leisure activities for adults

Hansa Language Centre

  • 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 language school Hansa Language Centre was founded in Toronto, Canada in 1969.
  • Address: 2160 Yonge Street, M4S 2A8 - Toronto, Canada (see on map)
  • Legal name / parent company: Hansa Language Centre Inc.
  • Tax registration ID: 858055510

Covid-19 related security measures that are taken by Hansa Language Centre

According to Immigration Canada's website, "Starting October 20, 2020, DLIs with a COVID-19 readiness plan approved by their province or territory will be able to reopen to international students". Hansa Language Centre’s COVID readiness plan is still pending approval by Health Canada. Health Canada has only just started the process of approving institutions, and this process will likely take some time. Moreover, there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the COVID situation, and the government’s response to it seems to be changing frequently. For these reasons, students applying from abroad who are interested in studying in-person at Hansa should plan to arrive in January or later, and based on current restrictions, students should budget an additional $2000 for the mandatory 14-day quarantine.
