Personal recommendation
A very small university which will give you the opportunity to really improve your French. And next to the classes you have enough time to explore the city and the rest of the country. Even got the change to see NYC!

Personal comments
Choice of finding a place through HEC (GIA Gestion) or finding a place yourself. Very easy to find an apartment to share in Montreal as everyone sublets. Most people seemed happy with their GIA Gestion accommodation as well.
