French in Halifax, NS

Why learn French in Halifax? –  The French language is deeply ingrained in Canadian culture and history, and in Nova Scotia, the French influence is particularly strong. Over 400 years ago, the Acadians, along with other European settlers, began laying the foundations for a French society in North America. Today, one-third of Canada’s population speaks French or both French and English, and according to the 2016 Canadian Census, there are over 66,000 Halifax residents of French origins. Although francophones are only a small part of the greater community here, taking French lessons in Halifax is a perfect way to connect with locals as well as better appreciate one of the cultures which has shaped Nova Scotia into what it is today.

Not only does French hold an important place in Canada, but its influence can also be felt all over the world. With as many as 29 different countries listing French as their official language, speaking French will, therefore, allow you to maximize your business opportunities wherever you are. This could be a life-changing investment, particularly in an international city such as Halifax, rated by fDi Magazine as one of the Top 10 Cities for Business Friendliness in 2017. Taking French classes in Halifax will allow you to reach greater horizons than before, extending your possibilities into Europe, Africa, and further beyond into places you would have never thought possible.   

As far as the job market goes, multilingualism is an attractive asset for prospective employees of any country, and it is definitely the case in Canada — 10% of Canadian job postings require candidates to have a working knowledge of both French and English. Considering that international tourism in Nova Scotia increased by 9% in 2017 and is expected to rise in 2018, there are fantastic opportunities waiting to be explored in the region. By taking French courses in Halifax, you will distinguish yourself from the 90% of Nova Scotians who speak no French at all.  

Since the Canadian Multiculturalism Act in 1988, Canada has been a country which welcomes all who come with respect and tolerance, regardless of their background. Studying French in Halifax means embodying that open spirit and becoming a more integrated part of a multicultural society. Our tailor-made lessons, guided by native-speaking teachers, are designed to suit your needs, professional or personal.
