Explore Montréal’s diverse neighborhoods, popular cafes and venues at the same time as you enhance your knowledge of everyday French to communicate more easily with native speakers outside the classroom. Take part in tours, listen to presenters and interact with locals to discover and use specific daily target language in real-life situations. This course will empower you to explore Montréal and to see it through the eyes of Montréalers.
The main goal of this course is to make the students realize how international French can be. Students will not only learn the differences found within this language (accents, dialects, vocabulary, etc.) but also similarities between French communities.
If you want to develop your French skills through exploring media, social media and their impact on society then this course is for you. You will analyze both the structure and context of newspapers, magazines, television, radio and the Internet.
Discover the world of international relations, explore various type of companies/organizations, marketing strategies, and more. Develop your international business knowledge and expand your business vocabulary. Using market research and the knowledge you've learned in the class, you will create a marketing campaign for a product or service of your choice, which will be presented at the end of the session.
Master the language of international affairs and keep pace with today's changing political climate. Practice English through debates on politics, economics and law. Instructional media for this course includes television, video and the Internet.
