Korean in Montreal

Korean is one of the most studied languages in the world, with more than 77 million speakers overall, according to Ethnologue, many of whom live in Montreal. The ties between the city and Korea are long-standing ones, as Montreal was the third-most popular destination for Korean migrants during the 1990s because of the benefits given by the government to those who wanted to establish a business in the city, and the flow of immigrants has continued ever since. Today, there are more than 5,000 people living in Montreal who claim Korean ancestry, according to the 2011 census, and most of them are monolingual speakers. This means that signing up for a Korean language course will enable you to communicate with this community like few others can, and to take advantage of the many professional opportunities available in Montreal to bilingual speakers. Contact us today and we will design a program that suits your needs and schedule!


Why Study Korean in Montreal

For Work: Studying Korean in Montreal will definitely help you get a new job in the city or overseas. South Korea has experienced remarkable economic growth for over 30 years, and its ties with Canada were reinforced in 2015 with the signing of a new free-trade agreement, which has since created important trade and investment relationships. To encourage these partnerships, many institutions, such as the Korean Canada Centre, organize events and seminars to promote business opportunities. For example, you can participate in the annual Korean Business Forum, an activity that will help you to acquire knowledge regarding different facets of South Korea, including its business culture, legal and tax framework, and potential business sectors. Also, many companies, like Keywords Studios, Morneau Shepell and SSENSE, are always on the hunt for new employees proficient in Korean to communicate with their Asian clients, locally and abroad. So, start a Korean course and boost your employability today.

For Culture: Those more interested in experiencing this ancient culture will be happy to know there are plenty of opportunities for doing so in Montreal. For instance, you can attend the annual Fantasia Film Festival, an event full of Korean films that will satisfy all your K-movie needs. The festival runs from July to August in various locations and it is a great opportunity to improve your listening skills by watching excellent movies in their original language. You can also enjoy the events organized by the Montreal Korean Language & Culture Centre on Boulevard Cavendish, an institution that crafts enriching, intercultural experiences and acts as the reference point for Korean language and culture in Canada. It hosts various workshops and events throughout the year to promote the dynamism, energy and passion that inspires Korean culture, like K-Pop karaoke nights. Join in and sing along to some great music with the flawless pronunciation you learn with us at Language Trainers!

For Social: And if you want to practise Korean while meeting others in your area who are also interested in the language and culture, you should join the East Asian Cultural Events Meetup: a group that welcomes all ages and levels of proficiency. Take advantage of this opportunity to improve your speaking skills in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere! Most of these meetings take place at bars and restaurants that serve delicious Korean food, so if you have never tasted dakganjeong (a deep-fried crispy chicken dish) or jokbal (pig's feet smothered in spices), this is the perfect occasion to do so. You can even order your food in Korean to really impress the staff with your language skills.
