English Courses in Toronto

EF’s English courses in Toronto offer students the opportunity to experience the North American lifestyle in Canada’s most multicultural city.

Study in one of North America’s most truly diverse cities. Our English courses in Toronto are held in EF’s loft-style language school. EF Toronto is located in the trendy Queen West neighborhood, steps from dozens of cafes, boutiques and ethnic eateries. Locals take fashion seriously, and there are countless shopping opportunities just around the corner from our school.

Our traditional brick building features an onsite cafeteria and an activities lounge so we can help students make the most of their time in Toronto outside of their English courses. EF Toronto is a short walk from several parks on the shore of Lake Ontario and the University of Toronto campus, home to some 50,000 students.

Canada’s Cosmopolitan Hub

Toronto is the cultural and financial capital of Canada. Waves of recent immigration have shaped the city into a patchwork of neighborhoods and ethnicities, each adding another layer to the thriving cultural landscape. Toronto is incredibly multicultural, with nearly half of its population having been born outside of Canada. While the diversity can be dizzying, the myriad cultures are linked together by the English language and support for Toronto’s beloved sports teams, the Maple Leafs in hockey and Blue Jays in baseball.

Toronto’s arts and music scenes are second to none, and the city’s theatre district is the 3rd biggest in the world. After class, our students can be found having picnics along Lake Ontario, filling shopping bags in downtown boutiques and trying to point out EF Toronto from atop the CN tower. On the weekends, groups head to nearby Niagara Falls to witness one of the world’s most spectacular waterfalls. Canadians are notoriously friendly and locals are open to casual conversation, making Toronto a great place to put those English courses to good use.

Student life in Toronto

Toronto is the epicenter of Canadian life. There’s something for everyone here, whether you’re a culture hound in search of live theater, a foodie looking for the perfect plate of curry or a nature lover eager to explore Canada’s iconic wildlife. EF’s activities coordinators are onsite to point you towards whatever direction you want Toronto to take you.

Sightseeing & CultureShoppingSports & OutdoorsExcursionsEntertainment & Nightlife
Take in the view of downtown Toronto from atop the CN Tower, Canada’s highest free-standing structure. Explore the colorful patchwork of cultures in the Greek Town, Little Italy, Chinatown, Korea Town and Little India neighbourhoods. Attend a screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, a magnet for Hollywood celebrities or see a live performance in the city’s world-class theatre district.
Toronto is the capital of Canadian fashion, and the annual fashion week draws designers from across the globe. Browse the boutiques of Yorkville for high-end shopping, and peruse the Fashion District along Queen Street, a favorite for the city’s trendsetters. Kensington Market is the place for bohemian and multicultural styling.
Toronto may be one of North America’s biggest metropolises, but access to the Canadian wilderness is never far away. Play beach volleyball on a Lake Ontario beach. Cycle around the car-free Toronto islands. Paddle a canoe in nearby Algonquin Park during the fall foliage season and ice skate on a public rink once winter arrives. Torontonians are passionate sports fans and watching a Maple Leafs hockey game is an unforgettable cultural experience.
On the weekends, you’ll be able to go beyond the city limits. Get in touch with North American nature at the nearby Niagara Falls. Discover French Canada on a trip to fun-loving Montreal or walk among world-famous skyscrapers on a visit to New York City.
Toronto’s entertainment options are almost as diverse as its population. Bob your head to a blues performance at a Queen West jazz club. Sip wine and listen to indie music at an art gallery opening in Parkdale. Dance the night away at the city’s ‘Clubland’ area, or head to the bars and cafés lining Little Italy’s College Street.
