Montreal

Learn French in Montreal, Canada and experience the world’s largest bilingual city. Named after the Mont Royal, a large hill in the city centre, Montreal is a city famous for its culture, excellent shopping and magnificent surroundings. Today, Mont Royal is one of Montreal's largest green spaces and hosts many sporting and cultural events in the city.

As a centre for the arts, Montreal is home to many cultural events throughout the year and visitors flock to the famous jazz, film and firework festivals, not to mention the renowned Cirque du Soleil.

With the Laurentian Mountains just an hour away, Montreal is also the ideal location for all kinds of outdoors activities, from hiking and sailing in the summer to skiing and ice-skating in the winter. Montreal is an excellent choice for a French language course at any time of year!

Courses in Montreal

Available courses

    You can learn French on an Intensive course of 20 or 24 lessons per week, which cover all main aspects of the French language (speaking, listening, reading and writing) with an emphasis on communication.  If you would like to learn at a faster rate, you might wish to consider a Super Intensive course which includes 30 lessons per week. All group lessons are conducted in classes of no more than 15 students of a similar ability.

    Alternatively, you can choose to take a course of private lessons, which will be tailored to your specific requirements. They can be used to concentrate on areas of the French language that you are especially interested in, or your weaker areas that you feel you need to improve.

    Accommodation

    Available accommodation

      We encourage students to stay with French speaking host families, which will give you the perfect opportunity to become totally immersed in the language and culture of Montreal. Host families are carefully selected by our colleagues at the school and provide a warm and welcoming environment for your stay in the city.  Your host family will provide half board (2 meals each day), giving you even more opportunities to practise! For accommodation with a private bathroom, just select the Host Family Plus option.

      Alternatively, students can stay in a nearby student residence, located just 15 minutes’ walk from the school. The residence is comprised of apartments accommodating 3-5 students, each in their own room. The residence is equipped with shared kitchens and bathrooms and provides students with access to laundry facilities, a gym and Wi-Fi. There are also common areas where you can relax and meet other students, and a recreational room with a pool table.

      Activities

      Like many of our other French language schools, our school in Montreal organises a cultural program of visits and activities, which helps students use their French skills outside of the classroom. Activities may include welcome tours of Montreal, visits to places on interest within the city, sports activities, karaoke evenings, boat cruised along the St. Lawrence River, cycling trips, and even excursions to Niagara Falls and Quebec. Your language immersion programme wouldn’t be complete without our school’s activity programme!

      It was delightful to be on this course. The staff were wonderful and I feel I made a lot of progress with my conversational French.

      My accomodation was excellent. The hosts were warm, friendly and welcoming. I was very happy to be there.

      The whole two week experience in Montreal was excellent and I have not a single negative thing to say.

      My f2f class was great - esp as I had a great teacher. I can highly recommend her - in case I decide to take a refresher course next year, it‘s because of her.

      I was very impressed by the school in Montreal. The standard of teaching was excellent and they really did manage to pitch the lessons to my existing level of French so I could progress. Both the teachers and the students were all very friendly. The food was fantastic and both of my host family parents were extremely welcoming.

      Good course overall with small groups which was ideal for language learning. The trips at the weekend were fantastic opportunities to visit the surrounding areas and the evenings to bars and clubs were equally good but the itinerary perhaps lacked some alcohol-free activites (sports for example) to allow people to meet each other in a more relaxed setting. I stayed with a very nice host, they were very helpful and friendly. The food was always provided and the offer of washing was made. My room was equally good and access to a computer which was a huge bonus. I was very happy there.

      I was only able to take the course for one week, which I realize was not nearly enough, but I was extremely impressed with the organization, and particularly the teacher. As I am somewhat older than most of the students, I was slightly concerned about my ability to be 'back in school' but found the whole experience quite inspiring.

      I thought the course was very well structured, and the various school activities allowed for students to gain a cultural appreciation for the location. Most importantly the school made the learning environment fun, and the credit for that goes to the teachers and administration who don't give up on you, and won't allow you to give up on yourself! My accommodation was excellent - a great French family, nice house, and a taste for various cuisines made it memorable. An added bonus was that I was never the only foreign language student staying with the family, and having someone to relate to helped me settle into the house and city quite quickly!
