The Importance of the French Language In Quebec
Quebec has always been known for its bilingualism as well as the multicultural heritage of its people. This makes it a great place for international students to study English or French (or both!). In the last few years, the number of students studying in Quebec has been on the rise. This is especially true for international students! In fact, 12% of Quebec students are from abroad – particularly from Mexico, Brazil, and China.
Quebec is the only French-speaking province in Canada and the process of learning a new language can be difficult but it can lead to so many great opportunities in this unique Society. It is the only place in the world where French and English blended with each other to create a very special mix of culture and language that we often call "Frenglish". Here are some interesting numbers and statistics on the student population in Quebec;
