What our students said about Toronto

Rating: 5/5

5.0

Everyone is so friendly and there are a lot of interesting sites to visit. It was, however, surprising to see how dirty the streets were and how many homeless people were around. Some even slept in the middle of the sidewalk or in bus stations on the main roads. They frequently begged for money, going as far as harassing customers waiting in line at stores. Nothing happened to me but some of my friends got their wallets stolen or got screamed at by homeless people, so I would rate "safety" at 3/5.

Toronto is a very pretty City, but very expensive City. So, just take care about it. The TTC is good, but too simple. You have to pay the most part of the activities, but there are a lot of amazing things to discover.

My teacher Adeeb.
I booked a 20 hour course. Day 1, only 50min class in the afternoon. Day 4, all morning lost on a ghost tour. Day 5, no class in the morning (we went out for breakfast all morning). So I only had 2 real days of class out of 5. I paid $50 for a book that I only used for one day. Activities are only a suggestion. Nobody from OHC school comes with us anywhere. They only offer different trips organized by other agencies.

Consider that every month there is a holiday Monday, so those who go for short periods lose a day of class
