The vast country of Canada prides itself on being a truly multicultural society and you are sure to find Canadians to be incredibly welcoming and hospitable! This is a country with two official languages, French and English, which reflects the long struggle between these two colonial powers to retain control over this, the second largest country in the world! Learn French in Canada, the perfect alternative to France, with its dramatic scenery and unique culture which has been influenced by what can only be described as a true melting pot of European, American and indigenous cultures!
Both of our French schools in Canada are located in the province of Quebec, the centre for Francophone culture in the Americas! Capital of this province, Quebec City was built on the site of the first French settlement in the New World and became capital of New France. This is an historic city that offers a glimpse into the region’s colonial past. In particular, the city’s old town, known for its winding, cobbled streets, is the only fortified city north of Mexico and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Alternatively, learn French in Montreal, the second largest French-speaking city in the world after Paris. This is a truly bilingual city, with many locals using both French and English in their everyday lives! This city is a cultural hub, not just for Quebec, but for Canada as a whole! Home to some of the country’s finest restaurants, as well as a large proportion of Canada’s French language media and art, Montreal is also well known for playing host to a renowned international jazz festival!
