What People Say


Angela Clavijo

If I am asked, “How was your experience with Language Students International?” I would say, it was amazing! I can tell it in three important points. First: This experience gave me the opportunity to meet different cultures from all around the world, like: Arabic, Korean, Chinese, and Canadian. Second: I learned English easily because of having in real living experience; for example at my homestay, with lots of new friends and many several different circumstances that forced me to practice the English language. Third: It also gave me the opportunity to leave my comfort zone. I truly can say “I will always love every second I lived in London-Ontario” thanks to Language Students International orientation.


Ian & Peggy Stewart

We would like to express our satisfaction with the Spanish Conversation Group sessions that we attended, in which we practiced the language in a relaxed atmosphere with our very knowledgeable Spanish speaking leader. It was an experience that enabled us to acquire the everyday language and expressions of native speakers. We especially appreciated the fact that in a small group setting, we could ask questions at any time and get immediate information or clarification from the instructor, something that can’t be reasonably done in a large class. Perhaps nothing improves one’s language ability more than lots of practice in speaking face-to-face with a native speaker, and we had plenty of opportunity to do that, on topics of our own or of mutual interest. Also, we were hearing and being instructed in correct pronunciation at all times, so it added to our confidence and comprehension.


Itai Malkin

Hi, my name is Itai Malkin and during the past year I was a part of the Spanish-English exchange program. I think this program is unique because although you can learn a language in a class, nowhere else can you get the one-on-one conversation style learning, where attention to detail is just one of the many benefits. The focus is fully on you, so you learn fast how to apply the language in realistic situations. The best thing is that both sides are an asset, as you get to do the same in the other language in return.


Ingrith Sierra

My experience with Language Students International has been one of my best moments in my life. I attended an English ESL school where I could share with people from different countries, learnt about several cultures, and lived a real language immersion with the help of a true Canadian family. After this experience, I feel more encouraged to hold conversations with any people. I truly recommend this program to students who feel insecure or shy to speak English.


Michel Parkin

I am happy to provide a testimonial for the classes I have been taking. I am happy to recommend this program after being disappointed with my progress taking traditional continuing education classes in Spanish, I was fortunate to experience a conversational Spanish class organized by LANGUAGE STUDENTS INTERNATIONAL. I found that the small group environment, with a focus on conversation as well as grammatical lessons, has really contributed to improving my capacity to understand and speak Spanish, with only two hours of instructions per week for the past year. I was so excited to find myself able to communicate functionally during a recent trip to the Dominican Republic! Based on my experience.



Visiting Canada and attend to an English ESL program was actually a great experience thanks to the orientation process provided byLanguage Students International. I really improved my English language skills and had a lot of fun and excitement visiting such beautiful places like Niagara Falls, the CN Tower and the Great Lakes beaches among several more touristic attractions in a very safe and friendly student environment. I truly recommend people to live this amazing experience.


Diana Tabima

I truly lived a wonderful experience with Language Students International. While attended an excellent English ESL school; I made new friends from all around the world and visited some of the most beautiful iconic places in Canada. Once back in my home country, I could introduce to my family, some Japanese friends who came to visit me to my home town. With the help of language Students International, I also had the chance of sharing some original folk dance from my home region in Colombia.
