Ottawa. Traditionally an Irish and French settlement, Ottawa became a popular trading post for frontiersmen from all backgrounds. From these multicultural roots, Ottawa has grown into a cosmopolitan city, rich in culture with a soaring employment rate and standard of living. Tourists and immigrants come from all over the world, drawn by Ottawa’s many universities, research positions, and thriving technology industries. In fact, 36.5% of the population speaks a native tongue other than English. Ottawa is currently the largest city in Canada with both French and English serving as the official languages.
To keep up with Ottawa’s rapidly progressing career sector and international community, it’s necessary to speak a foreign language. Stay competitive at work, prepare for travels abroad, achieve a greater understanding of world cultures, and much more by learning a second (or third! or fourth!) language. Take our free online language level test to see how good your current language skills are. Then, send us an inquiry for information on customizable language packages and to meet a native, qualified tutor in your area.
