The Canadian Dollar Is Weak, Making ESL School in Canada More Affordable Than Ever

Living and studying abroad can be an unforgettable experience, but it is also a big investment. Fortunately, this year the value of the Canadian Dollar has decreased. In fact, one Canadian Dollar is currently equal to about 75 cents American. As a result, students who want to study English can get a wonderful experience that is also less expensive than in many other English-speaking countries.

This can help you pay for tuition and can also help you travel around Canada in your free time. If you want to get a lot of value for your money, you might want to study English in Canada in 2017.
