Your knowledge of the French language is limited? It is possible and even recommended to start or continue learning French. At the beginning of each term, you will receive an email from Student Life Services regarding French courses offered by various centers and external organizations. You will also find resources to practice your conversation and to improve your knowledge of the French language.

French is the official language in Quebec, although it is generally possible, especially in Montreal, to function in English. If you already speak French, you may have questions about certain Quebec words and expressions. To help you, or simply out of curiosity, consult this small Quebec lexicon (lexique québécois).
