CANCELED – Summer in the City

Because of public health concerns, UQAM has canceled all summer schools.

Study English and French in the Heart of Montreal!

Just like its vibrant city, UQAM is a dynamic, open, creative university with an international outreach. Located in the heart of Montreal, UQAM welcomes students from a wide variety of linguistic and cultural communities.

Recognized for the high quality of their programs, UQAM’s École de langues (School of Modern Languages) and Formations linguistiques non créditées (Non-Credit Language Courses) are offering an immersive language experience.

This summer programme is not just about language – it’s about the city, its people, and its culture.

  • You will take three types of language classes:
    • English in the City: focuses on situational language – language to use in Montreal whether it be with your host family, locals, or new friends
    • Discover Canadian Culture: addresses academic topics such as Canadian education,   society, people, food, and nature all while perfecting your English
    • French in the City: introduces basic French vocabulary and expressions for simple conversations during your stay
  • In three weeks, you will use two languages in their authentic setting.
  • Language professors, UQAM student volunteers, and a programme coordinator will make your stay stimulating, fun, and stress-free.
