French in Toronto

Why learn French in Toronto? French culture and the French language form integral parts of Canadian identity, and there is plenty of both to be found in Toronto, Ontario. Boasting a population of nearly 3 million people, Toronto is the largest city in Canada and is the fourth largest in North America. In 2011, Toronto's French-speaking population was 32,665. Just 5 short years later in 2016, that same population grew to 35,365—up 7% percent! 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.

 

Taking up French classes in Toronto means that you are investing in your future. Recognized as one of the top ten “most useful” languages to learn in 2018, French dominates boardrooms, classrooms, and households 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: the Toronto-based international film festival, Cinéfranco, screens up to 40 Francophone films that showcase filmmakers far and wide, from Canada to Senegal. 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 arts 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.

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. Toronto Pearson is Canada’s busiest airport, and regarding the number of aircraft arriving and departing on a daily basis, consistently ranks in the top 30 in the world.  As of 2018, with 20 weekly non-stop departures from Toronto Pearson airport directly to Paris-Charles de Gaulle via 4 different airlines, Toronto is very much a gateway to French-speaking communities inside and outside Canada.

There are so many reasons to learn French: travel, business, relocation, family, etc. Whichever yours may be, taking French lessons in Toronto is a great first step to participating in the global economy. At Language Trainers, we specialize in finding the best possible French trainer for your needs, to teach you at a time and location to suit you. Send us a quick inquiry  to find out more about our personalized French courses.
