There’s also a cafeteria in the building where they can sit, eat, and chat with their friends.

TEACHING ENGLISH IN MONTREAL
Our global world is becoming smaller, and today’s workplace is international. With Canada turning increasingly multicultural, there are countless opportunities for trained professionals in Canada in both the public and private sectors. Opportunities outside Canada abound.
If you plan to travel, teaching EFL/ESL is a great way to finance and even extend your travel plans. Teaching is a superb way to immerse you in new cultures and to meet new people. If you plan to stay here in Canada, there are many teaching opportunities for qualified professionals. All major cities in Canada have long been a destination for immigrants. While many know several languages, they may need to learn or improve their skills in English. Our program provides you with the skills required to teach English to those who speak other languages.
If you qualify for a working holiday visa, this is the best option for a foreign teacher. Simply look for language schools in the Yellow Pages or ask around once you’ve arrived. In Canada, people apply at schools and go for an interview.
