Montreal French Schools - for a week

Postby James29 » Sat May 12, 2018 9:52 pm

Hi. I'm going to be going to Montreal for a week this summer. A few times when I traveled to Latin America I went to Spanish schools for a week here and there. I'd like to do the same thing in Montreal. Unfortunately, I am having a hard time finding a place where I can go to a basic French school for a week in Montreal. The problems are 1) the schools do not often offer a one week option and 2) if they offer a one week option the "registration" and "placement" charges make it cost prohibitive. Any suggestions?

(I don't see you sightseeing and listening to The Little Prince).

Anyone wishing to take language courses in Montréal should be extremely cautious in their dealings with the Collège Platon, which the CBC French-language programme "La Facture" revealed as having been found guilty on numerous occasions, and fined, for their deceptive business practices.
