About Excellence Language Assistance
Just like yourself, when we arrived in Toronto, we had to adapt: different culture, new life, new everything. For some, that’s a simple task. For others, however, even something as easy as grabbing a cab can become a nightmare. Our day-to-day living with people from our country made us realize that a big amount of immigrants didn’t have basic English knowledge, thus struggling everyday in their new lives. That is when we decided we would offer English classes for a few people. In no time we were teaching Monday to Saturday non-stop. But we wanted to deliver you more than just classes. And that’s why we are here. From immigrants to immigrants, Excellence Language Assistance is here to assist not only in learning English, but also in getting settled in your new life. Through our website, blogs and social media, we will give you tips and help you out. Don’t forget to send us an e-mail in our contact section to ask for available classes – or to ask anything you want. We always love hearing from you.

Which one is correct? “You were my friend for a long time” or “You have been my friend for a long time?”.
