Canada, with its breathtaking landscapes, vibrant cities and magnificent national parks, is a prime destination for international students wishing to make rapid progress in English or prepare for a language exam.

Canada has a deep history that goes back thousands of years, but it was the arrival of European explorers and British and French colonization that marked the beginning of its modern history. Since then, English has become one of the country’s two official languages and is widely used in all areas of life, offering foreign students an excellent opportunity to practice their English. With its own accent and distinctive local expressions, Canadian English is a unique and recognizable variant of the English language.

By opting for a language study holiday in Canada, you’ll also have the chance to immerse yourself in Canadian culture, which is a fascinating blend of Aboriginal, French, British and other global influences.

Choosing the right destination for a language study holiday in Canada.

Before booking your language study holiday in Canada, it’s essential to select the city that best meets your requirements and aspirations. Several criteria, such as budget, weather, time of year and length of stay, need to be considered to make the right choice.

  • Budget is a determining factor in choosing the city where you will spend your language study stay in Canada. Cities like Toronto and Vancouver can be more expensive in terms of housing and cost of living. If you’re on a tight budget, you’ll want to consider Montreal, which is considered the cheapest major city in the world, with more affordable housing and transportation costs. Nevertheless, it’s important to take your own needs and priorities into account when assessing the cost of living in each city.
  • The weather is also a crucial factor in selecting a city for your language study stay in Canada. Being a vast country, it offers a diversity of climates, from the oceanic climate of the west coast to the harsh winters of the central and eastern regions. If you’re a fan of mild, humid temperatures, choose cities on the west coast, such as Vancouver or Victoria. On the other hand, if you prefer a more continental climate, central and eastern cities such as Montreal or Ottawa may be more suitable.
  • The period of your language study stay in Canada should also be taken into account. If you want to take advantage of summer activities, choose a period between June and August. If you like cooler temperatures and fewer tourists, Canadian autumn (September to November) might be a better choice.
  • What’s more, the length of your language stay in Canada can influence your choice of city. For a short stay, we recommend choosing a city with a variety of nearby attractions and activities to maximize your experience. For a longer stay, you might want to consider a city that makes it easy to get around and discover different regions of Canada.

In short, the choice of city for your language study stay in Canada depends on a number of criteria, such as budget, weather, period and length of stay. Take the time to evaluate these factors and research the various Canadian cities to find the one that best meets your expectations and offers you a memorable linguistic and cultural experience.

The best cities in Canada to learn English

If you’re looking for the best places to improve your English in Canada, you’ll be delighted to know that the country is home to several cities renowned for their outstanding teaching.

  • For beginners, Toronto is the ideal place to acquire a solid knowledge of English. This major metropolis offers a wide range of options for improving your English, including international-standard courses certified by qualified and experienced professionals. With a wonderful mix of different ethnic groups and nationalities, this metropolis offers a warm and stimulating environment where you can interact with other students from all over the world.

As a visitor, take advantage of the excellent restaurants offering a multitude of exotic dishes, discover the many historic monuments and admire the beauty on the shores of Lake Ontario while acquiring a better command of English thanks to the quality school programs available in this region.
  • If you’re looking to improve your command of English, Montreal is ideal, thanks to its unique combination of English and French. Take advantage of the excellent specialized schools available here, as well as the very popular custom called “code-switching”, which allows people to practice both languages at the same time. For example, a student may use French expressions but retain the English syntactic structure. This practice strengthens cognitive capacity and stimulates faster learning throughout the language acquisition process. What’s more, Montreal offers its visitors a wide choice of specialized institutions where every student can find the type of course that suits his or her level and personal interests. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced student, there’s always a suitable, internationally recognized school program to meet your needs.

Vancouver’s diverse, multilingual population offers learners the ideal opportunity to interact with native or semi-native speakers from all over the world to gain a better understanding of English. What’s more, being located in the heart of British Columbia, this large city can easily be visited by car or train to explore the region and share its unique natural beauty while improving your English. Finally, for those in search of entertainment, Vancouver’s lively streets also offer a multitude of exciting activities such as live concerts, festivals and spectacular water sports during the summer months. So, whatever your reason for visiting Vancouver, this city is sure to satisfy your needs!
