What students liked about OHC English, Toronto
There are only a few people in the classes and so you can speak and learn a lot. The teachers have a good structured plan of their lessons and they take care to send you to a class with a suitable level. There are a lot of students from very different countries.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: To go out with other students with a different nationality and in this way learn about their culture and try their food.
Other comments: If you are in a lower level especially at the beginning of your course it is very difficult to unterstand your classmates who are from an asian country. At my first weeks I felt that some of the teaching rooms were too narrow. But after a few weeks the school opened a second building and then the rooms were okay. Nevertheless, the number of toiletts at the school is too small. However, the majority of the teachers is highly motivated, knows how to interest you in the lesson topics and is willing to answer all your question and to give you some extra work if you want. Sometimes at the school is a high quantity of teachers changes which makes you feel uncomfortable. Eventually, you can use the internet for free.
