General English, Business English - 20 weeks

UMC experience changed my life in so many ways! I met so many special friends with whom I keep in touch till this day. I explore the world with them, this year we all went to Tokyo!

Everybody at UMC  was always kind and ready to help any time, and my capable teachers taught me the best ways to learn English. I got so comfortable at speaking and writing in English that I instantly became ready to face new challenges my career in Brazil. I recentely started working in a multinational company where proficiency in English is a must. And UMC became the first step to my new and independant life!

Thank you for everything and see you all soon!

General English - 20 weeks

UMC English Program definitely helped me improve my basic English skills. Each class in the program focuses on different skills: communication, grammar, reading & writing and speaking skills, each with a different teacher. Teachers always provide clear explanation and make sure every students understands. The school has perfect environment for studying.

When I did not know anybody in school just yet, my teacher would invite me to all the activities and help me meet new friends. UMC Japanese student advisor was very friendly and approachable, always in school ready to answer questions and help.

The campus is located very close to a subway station, food court and a supermarket which is really convenient for when you want to lunch out. I loved the weather and transportation system, I believe Toronto is a great city for living! As safe as Japan, it made me feel at ease because it was my first time living outside of Japan.

Thank you so much UMC and the city of Toronto!

General English, EAP - 16 weeks

The program was really helpful.

When I first came to Canada I did not know anything about it,  but now I know a lot about Canadian lifestyle, history, economy as well as about world issues.

Now I’m ready for university and I got accepted to one of the best ones in Canada without IELTS. Thanks to UMC for this amazing time of my life!”

General English - 12 weeks

Teachers at UMC are really dedicated to teaching. All my instructors even stayed after classes and during breaks to answer the students’ questions and to help them get over the learning challenges they may face.

Students learn English using different methods and tests, I had most fun acting, playing games, and making ads in class. Teachers helped me improve my English and I feel much more confident now.

I also enjoyed  the after school activities organized by UMC activity coordinator. These activities gave me the chance to make new friends coming from different cultures all around the world; and also improve my communication skills in a very fun way!
