Français à Calgary

Start Learning

Canada is a very diverse country, and so is Calgary, a multicultural city with inhabitants that speak more than 100 different languages at home! According to the 2016 metropolitan census, French is one of the most popular languages in Calgary, with more than 20,000 speakers. The province of Alberta has long-standing ties with France. In fact, the first European language spoken in the province was French, by the first fur traders to arrive. This French connection remains today and hundreds of social organizations and clubs promote French heritage across the city. Further, dozens of international companies, especially in the fields of heavy machinery and medical instruments, are always looking for French speakers. Take advantage of these professional, cultural and social opportunities by learning French with us at Language Trainers! Get in touch with us today and let’s make it happen.

Why Study French in Calgary

Learn French for Work: Learn French in Calgary today and broaden your professional horizons. A socioeconomic profile of the Calgary area, produced for the Réseau de développement économique et d'employabilité of Canada in 2011, shows that the Francophone population, as a whole, enjoys above average employment and economic activity because their language skills allow them to get better jobs at international companies. Also, there are many companies looking to hire French fluent speakers to communicate with their clients of French origin, such as GardaWorld, Bayshore HealthCare and FedEx. And if you are job-seeking but don’t know where to start, you can get in touch with the Calgary Chamber of Commerce on 8 Avenue, an institution that has been promoting business relations between Calgary and other countries, such as France, since 1891. Take advantage of their networking events and impress native French speakers with your language skills.

Learn French for Social: You can also use your French to get to know new people in the city by joining language exchange groups, such as Calgary French Rendez-vous. French speakers and learners of all ages and levels are welcome, so don’t hesitate to join them, even if you are a beginner. Take advantage of this opportunity to further practise what you learn in your lessons with Language Trainers! These meetings are usually held at restaurants that serve traditional French dishes, like Fleur de Sel Brasserie on 4 Street, where you can order cassoulet or coq au vin using the flawless pronunciation you acquire with us. And if you are more into pastries, you can go to Yann Haute Patisserie on 23 Avenue and buy some delicious croissants or chocolate éclairs.

Learn French for Culture: And if you are looking for opportunities to explore the French culture, you can find many instances for doing so in Calgary. On March 1, 2018, the Alberta government proclaimed March as the annual Mois de la francophonie albertaine (Alberta Francophonie Month), and this is celebrated in the city of Calgary via the Franco Fest Calgary. This is a celebration of many Francophone cultures through music, dancing, cooking, crafts and other aspects that demonstrate the breadth and diversity of French-Canadian Heritage. Join in the festival and sing along to the beautiful French songs. And if you enjoy cinema, you can take part in the Ciné-Débat that the Alliance Francaise organizes every week. Discover new movies in their original language and put your French listening and speaking skills into play.
