I first started studying in Montreal, I had many difficulties because I had to learn English and French at the same time. But thanks to the help of many teachers and friends, I was able to overcome those difficulties. Don’t be afraid because you are not comfortable speaking in English and French. It is your first adventure in a new country. Embrace experience to make new friends who speak different languages. It opened my eyes to whole new world.

3 years of high school at EMSB gave me the most beautiful memory in my life. I would like to thank EMSB International Student Facilitators for organizing extracurricular activities to help us deepen our understanding of the new culture and contribute to our unique experience in Canada.

Being a shy international student was not a wise move, but EMSB got my back and introduced me to the community where the students were just as homesick as me. Let us just say I made lifetime friends! Go to the EMSB orientation for international students which will take place every year after the pandemic!! It is helpful for fresh off the boats and a great chance to get in touch with your community in a foreign country.

I am very happy in my new school. My classmates are really nice and helpful. The teachers are funny and cool. They are there to help whenever I need them. I did not expect people to be this nice!
