Arabic in Montreal

According to the 2011 national census, around 750,000 people in Canada identify themselves as “Arab,” with Arabic being their native language. The city of Montreal alone accounts for a third of this total, with approximately 280,000 Arab people living in this large metropolis. As a melting pot of many nationalities, Montreal hosts many festivals and academic events to celebrate its multiculturalism, including the Arab World Festival, where attendants can enjoy music and film which introduce them to cultural and intellectual issues related to the Arab world. However, there is a limit to how much you can understand without speaking Arabic, so make the most out of these opportunities by enrolling in a language course! Contact us at Language Trainers to make it happen.


Why Study Arabic in Montreal

Learn Arabic for Culture: Those who want to learn more and experience the Arab culture around Montreal will find many opportunities for doing so. If you are into arts and celebrations, for instance, you should not miss the Montreal Arab Festival that runs from October to November every year. This event hosts shows and exhibits and showcases artists, singers, actors and dancers of Arab origin. There are also live debates, conferences and lectures, as well as films screened in their original language. Forget about English subtitles after some classes with us and put your Arabic listening skills to use. Another great festival is the Festival du Monde Arabe de Montréal, which draws close to 100,000 visitors each year. At the festival, some 100 artists from Canada and the Arab world present a range of artistic works in disciplines such as dance, music, theatre and visual and media arts. Feel as though you are enjoying entertainment in the Arabian Peninsula without ever leaving Montreal!

Learn Arabic for Work: Saudi Arabia is Canada’s largest trade partner in the Middle East and North Africa: trade fluctuated between $3-4 billion between 2018 and 2020, with Canadian exports valued at about $1 billion and imports at $2-3 billion, particularly in the fields of oil and energy. This means that organizations working in these fields and who are based in Montreal need employees who can speak Arabic to aid communication; so, if you are working in those industries, learning Arabic will be an asset and give your career a boost. Meanwhile, if you would like to network with companies of Lebanese origin, you can get in touch with the Lebanese Chamber of Commerce in Montreal, an institution—founded in 2005—that provides business opportunities to entrepreneurs of both Canada and Lebanon by organizing monthly networking events and conferences. Most of the speakers are businesspeople of Lebanese origin, so make sure you polish your Arabic skills with us before attending these events!

Learn Arabic for Social: Learning Arabic will also come in handy if you are looking to make new friends with a similar interest in all things Arabic. For instance, why not join the Arabic Montreal Meetup? This language exchange group is open to everyone interested in Arabic cultures, gathering both learners and Arabic native speakers to their weekly meetings. Attend their events, make new friends and discover more about the many and fascinating cultures, all while improving your Arabic listening and speaking skills. Another great way to make new friends is by joining the Arabic Summer Program, organized by the Institute of Islamic Studies. This course is an intensive language experience combined with social activities that aim to create an environment in which participants feel comfortable communicating only in Arabic. This program requires participants to have at least an intermediate level of Arabic, so ask us about our Exam Preparation course to get ready and take advantage of this great opportunity!
