How you will Learn French at EC Montreal:
Learning through speaking is called the communicative method and with EC, you will always follow a communicative method syllabus 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. Your French lessons at our Montreal school will be topic based focusing on various issues from current affairs to everyday issues. Your professional and friendly teachers will expand on lesson topics helping you to increase our vocabulary, work on your grammar, improve your sentence construction and allow you to express yourself in the correct way. EC Montreal offers levels from absolute beginner to advanced in French.
Our advice to our students is to 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 the 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.
EC Montreal has an activity programme where you can meet and speak with other students.
We encourage you to choose French EC Montreal Homestay family. You will have the opportunity to practice your French skills with your hosts. The most ideal time is supper time when you can talk about what you learned during the day and learn more about your homestay hosts and how it is to live and work in Canada. You can also watch French television or movies together to really get the language exposure you need to learn and progress quickly!
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 new surroundings will all help you improve whilst you are studying abroad.
If you want to start slowly, you can also sign up for our Bilingual option where you can learn both English and French at the same time. You can take your core lessons, which are our General English or General French classes in the morning and the afternoon electives in either English or French. We also have a French + Gastronomy programme where you can practice your French skills during different gastronomy sessions in the city. There are food tours, culinary classes, pastry making, bartending lessons and much, much more to enjoy. The sessions are hands on, so even if you are at a beginner level in French, you will still enjoy them by learning and practicing the language constructively!
