What students liked about ILAC - International Language Academy of Canada, Toronto
The staff and teachers are very kind, always ready to help. Classes are a bit more interesting than in Russian schools. I didn’t even want a weekend, I wanted to go to school. It is also very cool that I got friends from almost every corner of the Earth.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Buy a monthly metro card:) Since it is quite expensive, and you use the metro several times a day.
A very nice atmosphere, very good teachers, good variety of courses and electives. The school offers activities every day during your stay (some are free and others aren't). Good location. There are people of all ages, but most are university students.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I was there for two weeks and time flied. I think it would be good to stay longer, a month would be great.
Other comments: Upon arrival to school, there are several people there to help you and answer any possible question. It's great! I found my own accommodation.
Excellent family. Everything is quite organized. There were small incidents with excursions. But in general, everything is fine. I'd like to go back to that school.

The effort about different elective classes and the controls to pass the levels. In my opinion, these are great challengers.
