Real English

To be honest, it's the place where i really felt like i am really learning something. I have studied English in two other institutions in Canada for a year and a half. However, after transfering to the School of English, i realized how important it is to be fully involved. Here, at the School of English, there is a rule forces students to speak english only. This is the key factor of which that makes the institution very unique. Based on a personal experience, i can guarantee that the more exposed to the language you are, the faster you learn it. Thus, i chose this institution.

the BEST choice ever

It was the best choice ever. I took 2 sessions and it was awesome. First of all, the facilities and activities are great. I learned English in class of course, and through the activities as well. Through the activities, I met many friends. Also, thanks to really nice teachers, it was really comfortable being in another country.

Best option.

Queen´s was one of the best academic choices I ever made basically because you receive a lot more than an english course. During my stay at Queen´s you meet people from all around the globe, understand their culture and share with them in a unique social environment.

This is not a cheap course -at least for latin people- but it worth every single bill you spend there. Great teachers, professionalism and good service makes this school a really interesting school to go.
