Italian in Montreal

Montreal is one of the most beautiful and exciting cities in Canada. You can find dynamic festivals, delicious food, fascinating history and a vibrant arts and culture scene. You can also hear a lot of languages spoken on the streets, like Italian, which is the third most-spoken language in Montreal and the province of Quebec, according to a study carried out by Statistics Canada in 2016. The 2011 census shows that almost 10% of Canada’s total number of Italian immigrants move to Montreal. Consequently, the city has many Italian districts, such as La Petite-Italie, Saint-Leonard, Rivière-des-Prairies and LaSalle.

Why Study Italian in Montreal

Learn Italian for Work: Learning Italian in Montreal will give you a competitive advantage and broaden your professional horizons. If you are looking for a new job, you should get in touch with the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada on Sherbrooke West, an international business association fostering Canada-Italy business exchanges and providing business-consulting services to companies looking to expand internationally. This is a great opportunity to meet with like-minded entrepreneurs and join their networking events. For example, every October, they host a business lunch so that members can get to know each other. Take advantage and impress them with your Italian! Also, many international companies in Montreal, such as Prolang, Alphanumeric Systems and Keyword Studios, are looking to hire bilingual speakers, so ready your resume by learning Italian.

Learn Italian for Culture: Montreal also honours its Italian heritage by hosting many events all year long. The largest one is Montreal’s Italian Week Festival, which has been organized every August since 1993. Celebrating Italy’s beauty and diversity, the festival allows you to discover Italian culture through music, gastronomy, fashion and folklore. Italians and non-Italians alike gather together in a fun-loving atmosphere, so join them and make use of the skills you learn in your language lessons! And if you like the theatre, you can attend Italian plays at L’Aquila Theatre once a month. The artists speak only Italian, so why not try to talk to them after the show is over and put your new speaking skills to use?

Learn Italian for Social: Those who are looking to use their Italian skills to make new friends will find many instances for doing so around the city. For instance, you can join La Bella Vita - Social Italians in Montreal, a group where you can make new friends, enjoy good food and drinks and live what they call "la bella vita". Another option is the Parliamo Italiano a Montreal Conversation Group, where you can go and have a chat in Italian. The group is suitable for all people who speak the language at an intermediate level, so you will be able to join them after taking a suitable number of classes with us at Language Trainers. And if you would like to go to a themed restaurant with friends, you will be happy to know there are plenty of options around Montreal. Order more than 20 delicious types of pizza in Pizza Il Focolaio on Place Phillips using your new Italian skills! And don’t miss Restaurant Corneli on St Laurent Blvd, where you can have a taste of traditional Italian food, like lasagna, gnocchi and tiramisu.
