Student Stories

"It has been so amazing because I have an opportunity to meet many different people. We are not just learning English, we learn different cultures. I like when we learn English grammer by doing games, because it makes you learn faster. My summer experience with ILSC in Montreal has been so amazing and I'm enjoying it."
