In class i have some dificulties, since most of my classmates were form Asia, and middleast were the languages are so, diferent that it was dificult to understan them, not to metion the different mentality. in general, they were very shy, and well in Mexico the class atmosphere is very different and everyone in general are social, and talkative, so there i had the rol of the one who always started and mantain the conversation, which was a litlle dificult since i never had to, but i think i handle it pretty well, and I learn to be discreat, because being amog students from all over the world, with different belifs, traditions, maners, it was a very interesting experience

When I started taking courses in Concordia University I had already been living in Montreal for three years. Montreal being a bilingual city (French/English), I was already familiarized to English. My studies in Concordia helped me to perfect my English and to meet even more Englih speaking people from Canada and all over the world.

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.

Most people speak English in Quebec, however there are a suprisingly large number of people who don't. The French language in Quebec is hard at first to understand for anybody who is taught from traditional French langauge courses.

Being a native Canadian, I speak fluent English and French. After attending the University, I was able to further enhance my English language and communication skills given the high quality education I was provided and the various communicative methods, i.e. essays and presentations, that I practised throughout my degree.
