Reviews & Testimonials
I took a one-week, intensive individual course and at the end of five days, I felt that I'd already made progress in comprehension, expression and grammar. The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful.
I attended OISE for two weeks in a morning course that had one other student. As a language teacher myself, I can say that the instruction in this program is excellent. The professors and staff were warm and welcoming, especially as I experienced a few personal crises during my stay.
At times, there was a tiny bit of disorganization. But the extremely pleasant and welcoming staff more than made up for that.
