or six weeks, ELP welcomed a fantastic group from the International Christian University in Tokyo. Twenty students participated in two sessions of Speaking English to learn and study English as a credit towards their English for Liberal Arts degree. Here is what a few students had to say about their time in Toronto: “I made a lot of friends from foreign countries with different backgrounds who came to ELP. Sometimes it is difficult to communicate using English, but it became a precious experience. This experience inspires me to learn English more. I appreciate everyone and everything.” ­­— Naomi Koyama “I’m very glad to have come here and learn at ELP because it gives me a lot of chances to improve my English skills. There are a lot of activities that make the experience fun, such as going to Toronto Island, Music Club, and Coffee Chat. If I had more time, I would love to be here longer. I could make a lot of friends and have quality time here.” — Keita Ishii “I enjoyed being at ELP and I can make a lot of friends here.” — Ayano Fukui

“I learned its important not to be shy to speak English in front of everyone. I got courage to speak English and the CAs helped us improve our skills through lots of activities.” — Kana Terashima “It was a great time. Everyone was very kind and I love Toronto.” — Momo Matsuo
