Armed with globe-spanning lexicons containing two of the world's most popular languages, the communication conveyors at the International Language Schools of Canada's Toronto campus untie non-native tongues with their evening foreign-language courses. Meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the small group sessions venture through transcontinental conjugations in French, English, and Spanish. Instead of relying on rote memorization, ILSC's instructors build understanding through participatory communication exercises, including interpersonal conversation and trust falls into waiting dictionaries. Courses arm wayfarers with elocutionary secret weapons, allowing them to order english muffins in style, realize a dream of becoming a Real Madrid announcer, or explain the concept of restraining orders to amorous French skunks. Students looking to formally assert their dominance of English can take the test preparation course for the IELTS, TOEFL, and TOEIC exams. ILSC's beginner to advanced offerings vary between languages and session dates, and Groupon holders are encouraged to check ILSC's schedule before booking tickets to Togo or agreeing to enter a rap battle against Mr. Bean.

A full bar slakes thirsts with such lip-smacking selections as the mango caipirissma, a strong, sweet concoction of gold rum and fresh mango juice ($10).

Captained by its accomplished namesake, Sonya's Skating School's team of NCCP-certified coaches ingrains ice-trekking pupils with proper skating technique while enhancing their strength, speed, and agility through individual correction. One-hour sessions imbue apprentices with boot and blade awareness, crossover control, and longer strides through drills performed by foremost NHL players and zambonis training for marathons. Recent revisions to the school's regimen include the addition of pucks and sticks to some skating programs, and cardiovascular exercises choreographed to music, all intended to improve the skills of hockey hopefuls. Sonya's Skating School does not teach beginner blade-wearers how to skate, so participants must be able to glide forward, backward, and across ice sculptures of juggling polar bears before arrival. Customers should consult the school's schedule for class times.
If you're in the middle of an emergency scenario at The Highlands Wilderness Training Institute, you can rest assured that your instructor has already experienced it. All of the survival school's teachers are professional Emergency Services Personnel, meaning they possess not only practical knowledge and quick-thinking skills, but also the state-of-the-art equipment to pass them along. Using Moulage-based training models, they immerse students in realistic, simulated survival situations that cover how to assess a situation and improvise a solution. These scenarios may fall under wilderness subsistence and survival training courses, which introduce skills such as foraging for food, defending yourself against a bear, and fashioning a stylish jacket out of moss. Additionally, the school provides training in plane-crash survival, and water and ice rescue via shore or boat. Though many courses prepare the amateur outdoors enthusiast, HWTI also provides specialized training for outdoor professionals ranging from geologists to aviators. Each program matches the standards of at least one professional organization, such as Wilderness Medical Society and the American Association of Emergency Physicians.
