Our summer program is over, and we’re sad to see everyone go! We had a lot of fun and made a lot of new friends and great memories! We hope to see you all next year!

Classroom Fun 2013

Not only do Quest students get to enhance their cultural and linguistic immersion experiences through afternoon/evening/weekend activities, but they also go to class five mornings a week. Class involves focus on grammar and conversation skills. But it’s not all work! Class can be fun too! We want students to get up, get moving, and get active as much as possible. Students enjoyed taking part in cooperative games that both helped them get to know their peers, and improve their English.

We even find opportunities for students to go on mini field trips with their classes! This year, a lot of the students wanted to go bargain shopping at Dollarama (a very cheap store with every item you can think of!). One of our classes also went to the nearby Allen Gardens (a small botanical garden) where they got to see a variety of plants and flowers.

High Park – July 24

Today, some of our student groups went to High Park, Toronto’s largest (and arguably the most beautiful) park. After a bit of suntanning, students formed teams and played a few games of soccer. Afterwards, many people decided to jump in the pool for a quick swim.

Shopping at Vaughan Mills – July 24

Students were able to check a lot of things off their shopping lists at Vaughan Mills Outlets, just north of Toronto! Many of the students were very organized and had lists of what they wanted to buy for their families and friends (and of course, themselves!). When it was time to leave, many students wanted even more time… although if we’d stayed any longer, we couldn’t have fit all our new purchases on the bus!

Blue Jays Game – July 22

Our Brazilian students enjoyed a new experience tonight… a Blue Jays Baseball game at the Rogers Centre! Although it was difficult to figure out the rules, students had a lot of fun watching the game, enjoying the exciting atmosphere, cheering, trying to get on the Jumbotron screen, and buying Blue Jays gear!

Movies – July 22

On Monday afternoon, students headed to the Carlton cinema to watch a movie. Students chose between Grown Ups 2 and Despicable Me 2 (better known among our students as Gru 2). Everyone really enjoyed the movies… even though they were sequels, they were both hilarious! And the students who chose to see Despicable Me 2 had the theatre all to themselves. All in all, a great way to spend a cool Monday afternoon!

Niagara Falls – July 21

On Saturday students woke up early in order to catch buses down to Niagara Falls. Everyone was impressed by the famous 53m high water falls, and enjoyed getting up close and personal with the falls (not to mention very wet) on the Maid of the Mist boat ride. Then students used their free time to explore the city of Niagara Falls, including tourist attractions (such as Haunted Houses, Wax Museums, the Aquarium, and more) and shops.

Canada’s Wonderland – July 20

Today our Brazilian groups travelled north of Toronto to Canada’s Wonderland Amusement Park. Many students tell us that this was the best part of their entire trip! At the park, students enjoyed a variety of rides, especially the newest, most thrilling and terrifying rides, Behemoth and Leviathan. Most of us weren’t ready to leave when it was time to go!
