My Toronto Story (Staff Edition)


My Toronto Story (Staff Edition) When I came to Toronto in 2009, I knew that I was going to have a very different and life changing experience. Before even arriving I knew that Canada was going to be awesome! I had heard the people were friendly and respectful with each other and that the city was safe and eco-friendly. When I finally arrived here I could confirm everything was true and I was just amazed. However, I quickly came to the realization that Toronto, although wonderful, can be very expensive, and that as a student I needed to save as much ...

Why we chose to study in Toronto


Why we chose to study in Toronto I chose Toronto to study English because Toronto is safe. When I applied for University I read something about Toronto’s liveability. It spoke about Toronto being safer than other countries, motivating me to do my own research about the city. I realized that in Toronto crime rates are low. For me, the most important thing is my safety; when I am walking on the street I shouldn’t feel nervous. I thought about what the best way to learn English would be, and then decided to come to Toronto. If one wants to learn English, ...

What else can I do when visiting Niagara Falls?


What else can I do when visiting Niagara Falls? Many students who visit Toronto love to make day/weekend trips to Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls includes three waterfalls; located between the Canadian province of Ontario and the American state of New York. From largest to smallest, the three waterfalls are: the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, and the Bridal Veil Falls. The Horseshoe Falls lies on the border of the US and Canada, and the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls are entirely on the US side.

Restaurant Review: Five Guys Hamburgers


Restaurant Review: Five Guys Hamburgers Today I will be reviewing my friend Dongmin’s favourite restaurant in Toronto, Five Guys Hamburgers. It is located at 329 Yonge street, close to The Eaton Centre. Five Guys is easy to find, and the restaurant has a nice interior, but it feels somewhat messy. It sells hamburgers, french fries, and some drinks. The hamburgers are very big and delicious. The french fries are pretty good too, but they are a little too salty in my opinion. Five Guy’s serves peanut-free food. You can also use the self-serve ketchup station. The service is great and the staff are kind. ...

Rules to live by when studying English in MLA


Rules to live by when studying English in MLA There are many things to keep in mind when studying English at MLA. These are a few tips about what students should and shouldn’t do.
