German in Montreal

Montreal is a multicultural city that hosts many international communities. One of the most populous ones is the German community. According to Statistics Canada 2016, there are more than 20,000 people of German origin in the city. The immigration wave from Germany and Austria began in the 1860s with the Prussian war, and has not stopped since. So, if you would like to connect with this growing community on another level and experience the Germanic culture around the city, you should study German. Contact us today and we will design a course package tailored to your needs and current German ability.

Why Study German in Montreal

For Work: Studying German in Montreal will allow you to explore all the language-related professional opportunities the city has to offer. For example, many companies are looking to hire fluent German speakers, such as Giro, TTEC, Keyword Studios and Poggenpohl. And if you are looking for a new job but are you don’t know where to start, contact the Canadian German Chamber of Industry and Commerce on Sherbrooke Street. With over 50 years of experience in German-Canadian trade, this institution understands the business needs of German companies in Canada. The Chamber organizes various conferences, seminars and delegations, and you will learn, for example, about new opportunities the Canadian market has to offer. If you would like to network with entrepreneurs of German origin in the field of mechanical engineering, you can join their annual Conference and Reception in Lightweight Materials. Most of the talks are carried out in German, so you will be able to take advantage of these conferences after taking some lessons with us at Language Trainers!

For Culture: Learning German will also be of help when participating in cultural opportunities around the city. For example, you can join in the events organized by the German Society of Montreal. Founded in 1835, this institution has been a long-time supporter of charitable organizations in Montreal, holding cultural events like conferences on the history of Germans in Canada. And if you like parties, you will be happy to know that every two years, the society organizes the German Ball, a traditional fund-raising event with ballroom dancing and delicious traditional food. Another institution that promotes the German culture around the city is the Goethe-Institut Montreal on Boul Street. For instance, this institution hosts the yearly Bazar de Noel Allemand (Christmas Market) on Avenue Roosevelt, where you can find German food, decorations, gifts and entertainment for you to celebrate Christmas as if you were in Berlin!

For Social: And if you are looking to make new friends who share your love for the German language and culture, why not join one of the many language exchange groups around Montreal? One of them is the InterNations space for Germans in Montreal, a group that was originally intended for German expats to share their experiences when moving to Canada. However, today they welcome anyone with an interest in speaking in German and learning more about the culture. Another option is the German Montreal group, open to all German speakers, from beginners to advanced speakers. Their events are divided into study and practice sessions and friendly, social get-togethers. All of these meetings are held in German-themed restaurants, like Gypsy Kitchen on Rachel Street, where you can order schnitzel or roast pork with knodel using your German skills and impress your new friends!
