Now more than ever, these numbers are on the rise as waves of people from both French-Canadian provinces and francophone immigrants find opportunities in this truly global city. in other words, taking up French classes in Toronto means that you are investing in your future!

Why Study French in Toronto

For Work and Travel: Toronto sets the pace for some of the world's most important industries, including technology, finance, fashion, art and design, among many others—all of which maintain close ties with the international francophone community that totals over 340 million speakers. If you are actively job-seeking, you can get in contact with the French Chamber of Commerce in Ontario, an institution founded in 2017. It tries to make a significant contribution to the economic, cultural and social fabric of France and Canada. For this to happen, they usually organise events, such as the Annual Gala and Business Awards, an exclusive dinner that brings together professionals, executives and entrepreneurs of French origin. Throughout the evening, they celebrate the achievements of distinguished business leaders in the French-Canadian community. This is a great opportunity to network with top-ranking business leaders, so go and impress them with your French accent!

For Travel: If you are interested in travelling to a French-speaking country, you may be curious to know that Toronto Pearson is Canada’s busiest airport, consistently ranking in the top 30 in the world for the number of aircraft arriving and departing on a daily basis. Within Canada, there are daily flights to Montreal, Quebec, Calgary and Vancouver. Internationally, as of 2018, there are 20 weekly non-stop departures from Toronto Pearson airport flying directly to Paris-Charles de Gaulle via 4 different airlines. As you can see, Toronto is very much a gateway to French-speaking communities, inside and outside Canada. In a little over 10 hours, you will be in the beautiful Paris, ordering delicious dishes and speaking to the locals using the language skills you acquired with us at Language Trainers!

For Culture: French dominates boardrooms, classrooms and households in many places in Canada and around the globe. As a cultural hub, there are countless French-related activities and events in Toronto to fill your calendar throughout the year. For example, the Toronto-based international film festival, Cinéfranco, screens up to 40 francophone films that showcase filmmakers far and wide, from Canada to Senegal. Why not attend and watch the movies in their original language to keep improving your listening skills? There's also the massive annual music event, Franco-fête, which pulled in thousands of attendees for their line-up in honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017. Between the art scene and the numerous cultural activities, Toronto always has something going on to do with French. Signing up for French courses in Toronto and becoming part of such a dynamic local French community is one the best ways to keep your finger on the pulse.
