Toronto, Northwest of Lake Ontario, is the largest city in Canada, counting 2.5 million inhabitants. With nearly 170 ethnic groups speaking more than 100 languages ​​and dialects, it is recognized by the United Nations as "one of the most multicultural cities in the world."

Toronto is known for its museums and art galleries as well as the CN Tower, one of the tallest towers in the world! In the heart of the city, the underground shopping centre, Eaton, has over 320 shops and restaurants. Many parks and green spaces, including High Park, the second largest park in the world, give some air to the city residents and visitors. It's also worth mentioning that the amazing Niagara Falls and their wild beauty are easily accessible from Toronto!


Our partner school, Quest Language Studies, is centrally located in the heart of down town Toronto. Small class size paired with professional and highly qualified instructors ensure that students receive the best English language education possible. Besides its unique atmosphere - beautiful, colourful and comfortable - the school is designed to create an ideal environment for learning and overall comfort.

The school is accredited by Languages Canada and member of CEC (Canadian Education Centre Network) and FIYTO (Federation of International Youth Travel Organisations), and offers 13 classrooms, 2 student lounges, a multimedia and language lab, kitchen, small library, coffee/juice and snack bar, a movie room, and Internet access.


  • Homestay

Staying with a host family is the best way to fully delve into the English language and Canadian culture.

Students stay in a single furnished room with half board. The bathroom, kitchen and living room are shared with the family. Students have access to a telephone, TV, internet, and other necessities.
