Where to Study Foreign Languages in Montreal: Montreal is home to many reputable institutions where you can take up language courses, such as McGill University or the University of Montreal. The École de Langues of the University of Montreal, for example, is recognized for its teaching excellence of French and English as second languages. Sign up for their courses and broaden your career horizons. And if you are looking to study more exotic languages, such as Sanskrit, Persian or Tibetan, then McGill is the place for you. Further, you may decide to enrol in a Bachelor’s degree, like their Middle Eastern Studies or East Asian Studies, where you will learn about the peoples and cultures associated with these regions, as well as the languages they speak. To sign up for one of these programs, however, you will need to have at least a basic understanding of one of the languages on which the course focuses (like Japanese or Arabic, depending on the field of study you choose). But don’t worry: we can help you get ready for this exciting opportunity with our Exam Preparation course, ensuring it suits your needs and requirements. Meanwhile, if you are already studying with us at Language Trainers and would like to get an international certificate, you can do so at many institutions around the city, such as the Alliance Francaise on Avenue Viger if you are studying French. Just let us know your goals and we will help you prepare and achieve them.
Where to Practise Foreign Languages in Montreal: Learning a language in one-on-one lessons with Language Trainers is great, as we will provide you with an amazing teacher who will deliver personalized lessons to help you improve your vocabulary, grammar and communication skills at your own pace and rhythm. Still, to improve more quickly and become more confident, it is important that you practise outside the classroom. So, why not join a language exchange group around the city? These meet-ups usually organize fun, easy-going and casual events in the safe environment of a pub or café, where you will use the language in real-life situations. For example, you can join World Citizens in Montreal, which arranges weekly gatherings and activities, which can range from laser tag or eating pizza in Little Italy to going to an art gallery. Another option is Mundo Lingo Montreal, whose members meet twice per week. All levels are catered for at the meetings, so, whether you are fluent already or just a beginner, you can get involved and benefit from talking to native speakers or other learners.
Language Jobs in Montreal: The economy of Montreal is the second-largest of all the cities of Canada: it is a centre for commerce, technology, culture, finance, and world affairs in general. Furthermore, Montreal is a hub for artificial intelligence research, with many interested international companies operating in the city, including Facebook, Samsung and Google. Being companies with partners and clients overseas, these businesses are always hiring bilingual speakers to aid and improve business communications at home and abroad. Sign up for a language course and increase your chances of being hired when applying for a job at one of these international companies. Meanwhile, those who already have a business and would like to expand overseas can get in touch with the many chambers of commerce established in Montreal. These include those of the Chinese, Italian, French, Portuguese and Lebanese, all of which try to promote friendly and productive business relations by organizing networking events, conferences and talks. Don’t miss out on these opportunities to make your business grow and expand your horizons by making new acquaintances using a foreign language that you learn with Language Trainers!
Using Languages to Experience Culture in Montreal: Learning languages in Montreal is certainly useful to get a new job and to meet new people, but it will also allow you to know more about the culture(s) of the language you are learning. For example, Montreal St. Patrick's Parade has been taking place since 1824 to celebrate the Irish heritage of the city, while those studying Japanese can take part in the Otakuthon, a convention organized for anime lovers. And if you are studying French, instead, you should not miss Les FrancoFolies, the biggest French music festival in the world. It attracts over a million attendees every year and brings in over a thousand French artists from all over the world. What better way to get better acquainted with the French language than by attending this event? As you can see, in Montreal there is something for everyone. Check out Go Montreal’s website for a full list of the multicultural events organized in the city.
