What we like about Toronto

Toronto is buzzing with energy year round. Like most large cities, Toronto has lots of shops, restaurants, sport events, museums and a lively nightlife. What is surprising for a large city is that Toronto has lots of green spaces and beautiful beaches. You can escape the hustle and bustle of city life and reconnect with nature easily here. The locals in Toronto are extremely friendly. Everyone is welcome and there is no end to activities you can join to meet new people and practice English. This friendliness has made it a very multicultural city with a variety of cuisines, festivals and local events. As Canada’s largest city, Toronto does not disappoint!

What we dislike about Toronto

Toronto has a high population of both locals and tourists. This makes its streets crowded, particularly in high season. This has only happened in the past few years and has resulted in Toronto needing to expand quickly to cope with the demand. The housing situation has been very affected by this. Accommodation prices are very high in Toronto compared to other Canadian cities. As the city embraces and catches up with the demand, these points may be resolved.

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.
