English in Montreal

Montreal is Canada’s epicentre of art and culture, a magnet for young artists and entrepreneurs looking for a place to develop their craft and connect with like-minded people. It is also one of the most welcoming cities in Canada, attracting different groups of people as tourists or permanent residents. Even though French is Montreal’s official language and more than 50% of the population speaks only French, English also has a prominent place, with more than 500,000 speakers, according to the 2016 census. This is the language of international commerce, tourism and even leisure, so sign up for an English course with Language Trainers today and make the most out of your experience in Montreal!

Why Study English in Montreal

For Work and Studies: Learning English in Montreal will open up many professional doors for you if you are looking for a new job. There are plenty of big companies that offer exciting positions with great benefits, such as Blue Cross Canassurance Group, Bell Canada, Canadian National Railway and Air Canada, and all of them require their prospective employees to have an advanced command of the English language. Signing up for an English course will also open up doors if you would like to take up higher education in the city. For example, being a fluent English speaker will come in handy if you intend to study at the Université de Montréal. This is a French-language university, but most of their departments are aware of the importance of bilingualism in order for graduate students to succeed in research careers, so they welcome students who are proficient in English, too. Contact us today and start preparing for your course well in advance!

For Culture: If you would like to experience Montreal’s culture, you will be happy to know that Montrealers love to party and the city enjoys an international reputation for its festive atmosphere. Each year, Montreal hosts some 100 festivals and public events, such as the St-Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival. With more than 800 performances crammed into 20 days, you will be able to enjoy cinema and theatre, dance and music shows, taste the local cuisine and more! These performances are mostly delivered in English, so take some lessons with us before the festival to make the most out of this fantastic experience! And if you love cinema and would like to put your new listening skills to use, you should attend the Montreal World Film Festival. Founded in 1977, this is one of Canada's oldest international film festivals, featuring more than 50 movies in English every year. Enjoy these festivals even more by learning English with Language Trainers! All in all, with so many taking events to enjoy year in, year out, boredom simply isn’t an option in Montreal.

For Social: Knowing English will also help you socialise with other Canadians around Montreal. If you would like to make new friends who also want to practise their English, join the Let’s Speak English Montreal Meetup, a language exchange group to meet people from all over the world, make new friends and have fun while speaking in English. Their meetings are usually at cafes and bars, so you can have some drinks while practising the language in a relaxed environment.
