I’m happy to introduce HOST School. I’ve been so blessed since I came to Toronto. One of the reasons why I am thankful is that I met the teachers and students at Host School. There is a special challenge and pleasure in studying at Host School. I still remember vividly when I came to Host for the first time. The teachers helped me with warm hearts from survival English to writing. They exposed me to broad English skills, knowledge and cross-cultural experience. It enriched the learning experience. HOST gave me confidence and advised me to apply to the York University intensive English program. Now, I have completed the program and am accepted into full time studies at York. Host School is the best place to enjoy learning English. Come and see; I know you will enjoy the experience.
