EC Montreal English School reviews

Oksana Klimova, European Center Montreal

Recently returned from the language courses in Montreal. She studied at the European Center. The program "Intensive bilingual" left an exceptionally good impression. There was a need to improve English and French to participate in the exchange program for students from their university.

The goals have been achieved, the selection has passed. In the EuropeanCenter for the sake of entertainment I went to the elective course on gastronomy. Now I have a new hobby - cooking. Thanks to the teachers of the school and the cooks who worked with our group!
