Meet Our New EC Montreal Student Ambassador: Tatiana Rosas

  Hello! My name is Tatiana Rosas from Colombia. I have been studying in the Bilingual programme (English and French) at EC Montreal for almost three months and still have three more months. I am friendly, always happy and always smiling. I wanted to be a student ambassador because have a lot of energy so I’m active most of the time and also to practice my English and French. I will be happy to help you with whatever you need and want 🙂  

Meet EC Montreal’s New Student Ambassador: Monique Barros!

We are delighted to introduce you to our new student ambassador, Monique Barros from Brazil.  Monique is participating in EC Montreal’s Bilingual programme.   Monique is motivated to fulfill her ambassador role and helping our new EC Montreal students.  Here is her message to her fellow school mates about her full immersion English and French programme in Montreal: Hi!  My name is Monique Barros and I’m from Brazil.  I came to EC Montreal to improve my English as much as possible and to learn another new language, French!  I arrived 5 weeks ago and will stay here for 6 months.  I came alone to study and I know how difficult it is and because of that, I’d like to help new students.  I love to meet new people and to make new friends. As an EC Student Ambassador, I’ll help new students and motivate them to speak English and French. I’m a communicative and responsible person and I believe that my skills can be useful. This opportunity will also be a new challenge, but it will definitely help me develop my communication skills in English. Thank you! Monique

Fun ways to say goodbye to 2012

Once again, we are approaching the end of the year. Our EC Montreal students studied English and French very hard all year long and we would like to present them some fun ways to end 2012 and say hello to the new year 2013! For music lovers In the holiday tradition: hear the Notre-Dame Basilica organ in action on December 23-24 and 28-31 at 2 p.m. and join the Arte Musica choral concert “Let’s Sing Christmas!“ at the Montreal Fine Arts Museum on December 28-29, 2 p.m   Even the cold weather and snow can’t keep you inside? Perfect! Because Montreal offers lots to see and do outside all winter long. You can skate on a huge outdoor skating rink looking at picture perfect skyline of Montreal. You will also want to check out Noël sur l’avenue along Mont Royal Avenue east of Mont Royal Park, and the further-east Olympic Park Winter Village, where from December 22-24 and again December 27-31, kids and adults alike can go ice skating and sledding, hang out with Rudolph and the other reindeer, sing Christmas songs and more – there are even fireworks on December 31.     New Years’ Eve Grand Bal  This is about as close as we will get to feeling like we are in Times Square for New Years eve, right here on home soil. The giant outdoor celebration attracts over 40,000 people with live entertainment and a spectacular fireworks presentation starting at 10pm on on New Year’s Eve at Place Jacques Cartier in Old Montreal. The featured house band this year is Raffy.   (Photos courtesy of Toursime Montreal)
