Hello, I'm Yuka.
I'm a Japanese student who love to study language.
I've been in Toronto since this March, and studying English.
I have only one more week to stay here becouse I'm moving to Montreal on Nov 9th.
I'm studying French there.
I'm so much excited about moving to Montreal now.
Last year I lived in Kyoto.
I feel like Toronto is pretty much simmilar to Kyoto.
Every streets have own names.
Those are big cities but there is some nature.
Especially, people.....I can't say in English but, as a non-local person( I'm not from Kyoto), I feel like they have some common thoughts.
Sorry about my poor English skill...
The one thing I like Toronto is that there are a lot of kinds of people
so that I can easily pretend to be Torontanian!!( if I'm not speaking, anyways)
However, it's a multi-cultural city so there are a lot of people who can't speak English.
Therefore, if you are thinking of moving or studying in Toronto, you don't really need to worry about English skills, I guess.
At many places, you'll hear a lot of kinds of languages such as Korean, Japanese, Spanish, French and English etc.
Toronto is famous for international students and working holiday people
There are many ESL schools especially downtown.
You may be dessapointed with such situation, but sctusally you'll need to talk in native language some time.
Living in a foreign country is easy, but there are a lot of differences, stress and colture shocks.
But, I'm sure that this experience wil bring you some wonderful gifts.
I have three more monthes to stay in Canada.
I'll enjoy it.
