My friend will come to Ottawa next week to learn English. He will stay here around 6 months. He may go to OU or UC to take these courses. But first of all, I will help me to find one homestay living with native English speaking people. Can somebody give me some ideas about it.
You can try to take a look at http://www.wwrnet.com/
They told me that homestay with 3 meals ask for 750CAD per month.
My sister is here taking ESL courses in algonquin college, I am not sure is there any different from OU or CU. She lives in campus residence because she can have time to talk with other students in residence and use the campus resource as much as possible.
