Real language
You will experience how the French language is spoken and used in many real-life situations. Relevant and engaging lessons will develop your understanding of grammar, vocabulary, idioms and pronunciation, and allow you to practice the four skills of everyday communication: reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Creative and energetic classes
Our teachers are qualified and experienced, and when it comes to creating lessons, they know what works. French classes are dynamic, engaging and motivating, designed to activate and build upon your strengths, whilst also giving targeted attention to your weaker areas. Relaxed and informal classroom environments create an encouraging atmosphere, to help build your confidence, realise your potential and advance towards fluency.

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.

Expert support
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.

Authentic materials
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.
