Information on the English School in Montreal
Montreal is the largest bilingual city in the world, a place where the English and French have created a perfect balance. It is a beautiful city, safe, rich in culture and history and has recently been named “ UNESCO City of Design“. The centre offers cultural events, entertainment, shopping and nightlife of the highest quality … and these are just some of the aspects for which this city is so popular with millions of students each year.
The public transport system is reliable at all times of day and to any destination (and there are metro-stations and bus links right near the school!), so getting to your English lessons will be no problem at all! It’s brimming with culture and festivals, amazing food and lots of outdoor activities.
