Course recommendations
If coming from outside North America, it's best to do courses which are a level higher. Also with Montreal being a Francophone city, it's best to take a course in French if you're not already French speaking.

I am much more comfortable than I was before when it deals with speaking english now. I think what made the difference was the fact that I really wanted to communicate and exchange ideas with all the people around me with whom I had to work in every courses. I made the choice of studying abroad since I wanted to discover a new culture through people, countryside and the education system but I also knew from the beginning that I was there to improve my english everyday.

If you're a french speaking student who wants to really improve his english forget it. There are far too many french people and you cannot really do without them, more, nearly all the students in Concordia speak also french. However the courses will permit you to practice english.

I would say that life in Montreal is a bit cheaper than in most european countries. Going out is less expensive and you will surely spare money with the appartement.

Personal comments
You will fastely see that Concordia likes your money. You'll have to pay for everything you ask them. It is because Canadian Universities lack money since the governement is decreasing its grants. Bank services are also a bit more expensive than in Europe.
