Our English courses in Toronto

In our Toronto English school, there are a variety of course types, durations, and intensities available. We offer classic English courses at three intensity levels in Toronto: basic, general and intensive. These English courses are differentiated mainly by the hours of time spent in English class. Basic English courses are only offered in the summer. The other two types of English courses can be started on any Monday throughout the year and continued for a flexible length of study.

We also offer a range of specialized English courses in Toronto for students with specific objectives. For example, if you would like to continue your studies in a Canadian university, we have a dedicated English course to help you reach that goal. Likewise, if you are preparing for the TOEFL, we have a TOEFL preparation course in Toronto. These are only two examples of the many types of English courses available.

Our traditional brick building features an onsite cafeteria and an activities lounge so you can hang out with friends and keep speaking English after your English classes are finished. EF's English school in Toronto is a short walk from several parks on the shore of Lake Ontario and the University of Toronto campus, home to 50,000 students.
