French in Montreal

French is one of the most-spoken languages worldwide, with over 250 million speakers, according to Ethnologue, and the language forms a crucial part of Canadian identity. Thus, it should come as no surprise that Montreal, one of Canada’s most important cities, is a key hub of the language. With an estimated number of 110,000 French citizens in Montreal, and with 95% of the population speaking French according to Census Canada 2016, learning the language becomes vital for residents and visitors looking to make the most of the cultural, educational, professional and touristic opportunities. Get in touch with us at Language Trainers and we will prepare a tailor-made programme that will suit your skills and busy schedule.

With our online courses, you can take French lessons wherever and whenever you want. Reach out to us and we will prepare a personalized online program. You can even record the lessons to replay them later as many times as you need!

Why Study French in Montreal

For Social: If you are thinking about socializing using the French skills you acquire with Language Trainers, why not join the Montreal French & English Language Meetup? The main goal of this language exchange group is to provide a relaxed and friendly environment where you can enhance your French skills and build new friendships. The group is open to people of all ages, nationalities and levels, so you can join them even if you have just started your French course! Another option is to join the “C'est la vie - Practice your French with us” group! Do you want to learn French in a relaxed atmosphere while having fun? Then attend their weekly meetings where members enjoy games, jokes, stories and native French speakers who want to have to chat while having fun at the café "Presse Café", next to the Peel metro station.

For Culture: You can also enhance your cultural experiences around Montreal by learning French. For example, if you love cinema, you can attend the annual Montreal - Cinemania French Film Festival. Since its inception, this event has established itself as a masterpiece of French-language cinema. Every year, it screens more than 70 movies in their original French. While the films are screened with English subtitles, we are sure you will not need them after taking some lessons with us at Language Trainers. And if you are more interested in history, you can visit the McCord Museum on Sherbrook Ouest. Founded in 1921, this institution is dedicated to celebrating Canada’s past, traditions and communities, with collections that include costumes, photographs, paintings, prints, decorative artworks, and more.

For Work: Learning French in Montreal will also help you to boost your career. Big companies like Blue Cross, Air Canada and Bell Canada have headquarters in the city and are always looking for new employees to add to their teams. One of their requirements is for candidates to have an advanced command of the French language, so start learning ASAP! And those interested in establishing their own business in a French-speaking location (be it Montreal or a foreign country) should get in touch with the Chamber of Commerce in Montreal on Boulevard Rene Levesque Ouest. The organization seeks to assist local companies by organizing trade shows and events. For example, they hold an annual gala where you can network with important international and local businesspeople. Use your French skills to impress them and build long-lasting business relations!
