Learn by doing
At EC Montreal, progress is maximised as students are encouraged to learn by doing. Our task-based lessons focus on the active production of the language, promoting class participation and interaction between students.
Improve your 'thinking time'
As your skills and confidence develop with support from your teachers, so too will your ability to listen, understand and respond quickly and effectively in French. You will notice these improvements most of all when you take your new skills outside of the classroom and into everyday conversation.
Your teachers are trained to deliver on-going support, feedback and care throughout your time at EC Montreal. You will be taught by at least two teachers, exposing you to a variety of voices, improving your listening and boosting your vocabulary.
We believe there is no substitute for authentic language so, in addition to text books, our teachers use resources taken from newspapers, TV, radio and the Internet. The authentic nature of these materials gives our students an appreciation of the richness of the language used in a variety of everyday contexts.
