"I had an amazing experience studying at English Encounters. The teachers were very nice, supportive and friendly, and they made learning English fun and engaging. In addition to teaching, they help students adapting to the life in Canada. The communicative approach they used helped me to build my confidence in speaking English and I was able to apply what I learned in real-life situations. The small class size allowed me to get personalized attention from my teacher, and the online learning platform provided me with additional resources to improve my language skills. The school also offered various cultural activities that helped me to learn about Canadian culture and meet new friends. It's also a great opportunity to meet friends from different countries who have the same difficulties, which could be share and made my life here much easier. Thanks to English Encounters, I was able to improve my English proficiency significantly and achieve my language learning goals. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to learn English in a supportive and stimulating environment."

"I really enjoyed studying here. As the groups are small, every student gets individual attention and my English improved a lot, although I have only stayed for four weeks. In addition, I really enjoyed the excursions and activities to Niagara Falls or Toronto. It was a very nice experience and I don’t want to miss that time. Thank you very much everybody for the nice time!"
