Find out what methods we use to meet the learning needs of our students
We place a great emphasis on your development and your ability to speak and understand spoken French. These are the successful methods we use, in all our schools, to help you achieve your goals.
Speak French as much as possible
The more you practice and the more exposure you have to French, the faster your ability and confidence will improve. We encourage our students to use French as much as possible outside class. We want you to be surrounded by French, and this is how:
Montreal is a bilingual city where both French and English are spoken. French is the first official language. You will find it easy to practice your French in Montreal.
We have activity programmes where you can meet and speak with other students.
You will be staying with someone you can speak French with, whether it's homestay or residence.
Our teachers also give regular homework ensuring that new vocabulary and grammar structures become easily memorable.
Speaking to classmates and homestay families, reading and listening to materials that you enjoy and discovering your new surroundings will all help you improve whilst you are studying abroad.
The goal of our teachers is to make sure that you learn as much as possible in a short time. They are there to help you reach your full potential at EC. Our teachers provide useful and interesting lessons, all taught in a fun and relaxed way.
Our lessons are designed to be relaxed and fun. That’s because we believe you will learn more in a friendly atmosphere. You will feel confident using French and you will speak as much as you can.
How you learn
Learning through speaking is called the Communicative Method and with us you will always follow this method working on all your French language skills. At EC Montreal you will participate in classroom discussions, work in small groups, in pairs or individually. You will practice your French pronunciation, intonation and accent. French lessons at our Montreal school are topic based focusing on various issues from current affairs to everyday issues.Contact us
