Language School Toronto — Eurocentres: Meet the world
In terms of surface area, Canada is the second-largest country on Earth; in terms of the size of its heart, however, Canada is most certainly number one. Ultimately, there are very few countries with a reputation for such an accommodating, relaxed, polite, friendly and tolerant mentality as this North American country. See it for yourself – preferably in Toronto.
The capital of the Canadian province of Ontario reflects the character of the country in an exciting way and peppers it with the dynamism of a metropolis. The city by Lake Ontario is a stand-out destination for language studies abroad, in a cosmopolitan big-city atmosphere combined with Canadian charm. At Eurocentres, a language study abroad is more than just a professional language course; it is a cultural trip to a unique city. Get to know the English language with us in the country of unspoiled nature, cultural diversity and ice hockey. A real bull’s eye!
The centre in ice hockey is a centre forward that leads the play, and he knows how to get attention. Toronto understands just how to do this – appropriately enough right in the centre. This is where you will find the Canadian National Tower (CN Tower for short). Standing at 553 metres high, it is not just one of the tallest buildings in the world; it is also the country’s index finger, which looks as though it is pointing out to all of Canada and Toronto. And not without good reason, as you will discover when you visit the 342 metre-high open-air platform or the sky pod’s viewing platform, which is actually 447 metres high. From there, you can take in the whole city and have an unforgettable panoramic view. In good weather, you can see for more than 100 kilometres, far out over Ontario’s countryside and even sense the raging mass of water that is the Niagara Falls. Not far from this Canadian metropolis, it is a stunning natural spectacle. You should definitely visit; let the waterfalls take you by storm, just like Toronto itself.
Get to the heart of your language stay in Toronto
The best way to set off on your personal tour of conquest of the Canadian capital is by plane. In addition to Pearson International Airport, Toronto also has its own regional airport, just two kilometres south of the city. Alternatively, you can also travel by train from other North American cities. With its magnificent neoclassical entrance, Union Station would be the perfect destination for a journey to any city. In Toronto, due to its central location, it is also the main hub for the city’s public transport system; the three different trams that take you to the nearby Eurocentres Language School in Toronto are easy to find.
The Toronto Language School has global appeal. Students from all over the world meet at their language stay in the largest finance and business centre in Canada to learn English, foster cultural exchanges and make friends for life. The language school is the perfect forum for that: firstly, it has an ultra-modern set-up and air-conditioned classrooms, which alongside the computer room, media centre and library create first-class learning conditions. Secondly, the broad range of courses on offer are taught by highly-qualified language teachers who know how to fill every language gap. And, to complete our hat trick you will have the opportunity to integrate into the life of the city; Toronto, after all, can contribute quite a bit to your language learning.
Learn English on the streets of Toronto
The language school is in the heart of the so-called Entertainment District. Entertainment here means: sights, shops, restaurants and bars close by – and, of course, contact with the English language. Canadian English is considered to be very easy to understand, which will help you progress further with your language learning. If you can understand other people, after all, you are less inhibited in responding, and because of this you will improve your English in an enjoyable way. The friendly and outgoing Canadian mentality provides the perfect framework for this type of daily learning on the streets of Toronto. The exceptional commitment of the teaching staff and colleagues at the Eurocentres Language School also encourages, in this regard, the connection between the lesson and language use in leisure time. In addition to the comprehensive language course, they also organise daytrips and activities, bringing language, city and people closer together.

A typical day at Eurocentres Toronto
Alessia got up particularly early this morning as she wants to check her mail in the school’s computer room before her lessons start. She has promised to send photos of Niagara Falls, which she visited last weekend with her host family, to her sister. She found the natural spectacle absolutely breathtaking, which is why she is looking forward to sharing the experience with her sister – at least with the help of her photos.
Alessia’s journey to school takes almost 40 minutes as Toronto is very spread out. It took her a while to get used to this, but since she knows that a commuting time of 45 minutes is completely normal for Torontonians, she has adjusted to it and makes use of the time to prepare for her classes. On arriving at school, Alessia completes her email correspondence before getting herself up and running with a coffee in the comfortable student lounge. This is where many students from all over the world gather during their breaks and chat in English about their experiences in the school, about their host families and about the city in general.
