  • Jamie Matechuk

    Centre Director                                      

    Hey! Some students might call me Justin Bieber, but my real name is James. On top of that, my friends call me Jamie. Confusing, eh?

    I've had the pleasure to be working with language students for over ten years. In that time I've been a Teacher, an Academic Director, a Ukulele Player, and now a Centre Director.

    I truly believe that learning a language in Toronto is a magical and life-changing experience. I was born in Niagara Falls, but I've spent most of my adult life here in the 6ix, and I can tell you that is an amazing city. 

    Can't wait to see you here in T.O.!

    Hello everyone! I am always excited to meet new students and help students to adjust to this wonderful city, Toronto. I am happily willing to help you have a new experience of learning English and exploring this city. I briefly would like to share my experience in living in Canada.

I love watching soccer, baseball and tennis games!

    China

    I’m a Chinese girl who have been in Toronto for 6 months. When I arrived in Toronto, it was winter and the snow covered everywhere. I thought it wouldn’t be great but enjoyed the difference from my country and for the first month, I always went to the library and tried to practice English by communicating with local people. In this multi-cultural city, people are very helpful to others especially the teachers and staff at this school. By participating in many different activities the school offers, I was able to make many friends from different countries. I’m currently in Academic Program and will go to College next year through the pathway program.

    Toronto is a unique city where people from all over the world live and work. My language school is a part of Toronto, there are students from all over the world. The school is conveniently located near the subway station. All the formalities and any issues are solved quickly with excellent student service staff: Akane, Veronika and Sam.

    I really like the size of classes and the large windows with them. This school also has computer room and a comfortable room where you can have lunch. My lovely teacher doesn’t leave any questions unanswered and make sure everyone in my class understand. I’m sure that the study in this school will bring the expected result! Education is always in a positive way and many events and activities are hosted by the school almost every day.

    I’m from Korea and am studying English here. At this school, I can meet various people from other countries! And every staff are really helpful. As I’ve been taking the Academic program, my English skills including reading, listening, vocabulary, as well as writing have been improved a lot.

    Toronto has over a hundred races and is known as a multi-cultural city. There are many places to visit, many attractions and events to participate in this city. It’s a great place to study English and get to know different cultures at same time. It’s your turn to experience it!!

  • Thai Carvalho

    Toronto is a large multi-cultural city located in the East of Canada, which is a beautiful and developed country attracting tourists and students from all over the world. This school is a very welcoming school located in the area called North York. This area is very safe and clean. There is easy access to the transportation and to Downtown Toronto as well.

    That’s why I chose Toronto and think that it was my best choice for my exchange experience. The opportunity to meet people from many different countries and learn about their cultures in one city that also offers both nature and city side, is very satisfying!

    My study abroad experience is completed in Toronto. I can live in one of the biggest, greatest, and safest Metropolitan cities. Every day, I have a new experience and face many opportunities.

    About English study, I took ESL and am currently in Academic Program and my teacher is amazing. She provides us with different materials, not only from the textbooks but some reading materials from the news, Internet and some other books like TED. I’ve learnt and been given more than I expected.
