The University of Ottawa is bilingual: roughly 40% of the classes can be chosen in french. On campus, you can choose whether you want to speak french or english with some people, though sometimes the English and the French communities are two separate ones.

I had no language or communication problems whatsoever. That's because I was already fluent in English when I arrived. I haven't spoken any French though (the other official language at OttawaU), but that wasn't one of my exchanges goals to begin with.

The uni is bilingual which mean everything is in French and English. Great for ppl wanting to learn some French. But no one language dominates the other so you can get by fine with either or both!

I learned English, even if I found no available place for the ESL course. By the way, classes are taken in French too, and majority of Ottawa people speaks French.

The fact is that, here in Ottawa (Canada), people speak both French and English. As I'm French and I spoke English before coming, it was not a problem!
