New campus, new store, new ILAC. In July of this year, we celebrated our 20th anniversary. Today, let’s discover our newest project to increase students’ happiness: The ILAC Experience Store. Located at ILAC’s Cumberland Building in Toronto, consider it the place where your journey through Canada begins.
Mateus and Erika, ILAC students from Slovakia, are living the Canadian experience! With smartphones in their hands and smiles on their faces, they share their favourite photos of their trip to New York with Laura, their event leader:
“Look at how nice and crowded it was“, Erika brags.
“I have been there three times, I love it. I am happy you tried guys“, Laura says.
This is the perfect scenario defining the Experience Store, trying and sharing.
Matheus beams: “I love ILAC’s activities; I have been to the Sunset Canoeing, The CN Tower, Niagara Falls, and Ripley’s Aquarium. The event leaders brought us to amazing places.” ILAC’s staff plans out local social events for students all across the city at the ILAC Experience Store.
ILAC Experience Store: A personalized service
Laura explains: “Students do not come to ILAC only to learn English. They want to live the whole Canadian experience! It’s more than studying; it’s an opportunity to meet people and make new friends“. She tries to get to know each student better so she can suggest activities that will be close to their interests. She enjoys her job and feels great at ILAC. She is not the only one:
“I love working here. I can meet new people and be a part of their Canadian Experience. I try my best to exceed their expectations by creating an unforgettable trip for them!” Event leader, Aneta, chimes in. Rafael and Tae Lim, the masculine side of the team, completely agree with their co-workers.
Marina Serozini, the Social Events Manager at ILAC, shares her colleagues’ love for their work: “ILAC wants to be that school that is raising the level of everything. I think the service of creating an opportunity for great experiences outside the classroom for students has always been important to us.“
Marina and her team are proud to have a place where they can connect with students; answer any questions and most importantly, help build memories that will last a lifetime.
A fast service
You will also find a concierge-style ‘express’ counter where you can buy your textbooks and activities. This is a place where everyone is welcome. No matter where you’re from or what your interests are, the Experience Store provides an inclusive space for everyone to explore opportunities that bring their experience to the next level and see what Canada and ILAC have to offer! What a beautiful place to practice your English!
