Laura, from Colombia, has been studying at GV Toronto for four months. Every morning, she speaks English and plays billiards with a group of students and one of the GV Teachers, John, and she explains that opportunities like this have been very important in her English development. She also says that teachers have given her individual learning strategies and helped her when she got stuck.
"I remember when I began here," says Laura, "one specific teacher, Margaret, helped me a lot. She can help you when you have difficulty to understand or maybe to communicate with other people. All the teachers can explain to you a lot and help you if you have difficulties."
