Student Testimonial

My name is Sofia Pla Alemany and I was a student of yours last summer. Ever since I left (really pleased with my experience) from Montreal I had wanted to let you know about my time there, however I keep forgetting every time. I hope that it’s better late than never.
I would like to talk especially about my excellent home stay as I had the pleasure of staying with Valerie Vieira. Although I was only one month there she made me feel from the very first moment as if I was at my own home and mostly as if she was my family. She was always comprehensive with me, talked to me and listened, she was there for me all the time and made my experience even better. I could probably say that she was the main reason why I returned so happy to my country and the reason why I still have so good memories of my time there.
As I said she was always willing to chat, in particular at dinner time, where we had really nice talks and where we shared lots of things from our experiences as well as our culture, which was great for my English communication improvement, one of my main objectives for this month. Above that, the food was always amazing, and I had the chance to taste every Canadian dish at the very best level, seriously awesome.
Besides, this was my first time in a home stay, so I was more than impressed and could have never imagined I would get the chance to live with such a nice and caring person in a beautiful home and superb neighborhood.
I could not forget about my outstanding teacher, Essadia. It was an absolute pleasure to be in her class as it was enjoyable but still useful and effective. Thus, she was able to make me love French even more in only four week. I learned, improved and achieved my goals, for what I am so grateful, and I wish every French teacher in the world was so capable and loved his/her job as she clearly did.
Finally, I wanted to thank you, EC Montreal and congratulate you for your great job and for making all of this possible for all of the many students who are lucky to study here and to get to know Montreal by your hand. Its been a gladness to have had this opportunity and I hope to be back soon!

Teacher Testimonial

My name is Melissa and I’m excited to join the EC Montreal’s teaching team. I’m originally from Toronto, Canada, and have lived and worked both in Toronto and Hong Kong, teaching English. I strive to create a positive, peaceful, and warm environment in my classroom, so that students feel free to learn.

One of my favourite things about working in a place like EC Montreal is the variety of people that I get to meet as a teacher, and I love getting to hear people’s stories and see how learning to communicate plays a role in their lives! In my free time, I like to watch movies and read – I especially enjoy scouring used book stores for good finds! I also love music – I play guitar and piano, and sing, and I absolutely love going to see live music.

I’m looking forward to meeting lots of students and helping them share their stories, gifts, and experiences with the world.
