BEC expands to Montréal

June 18, 2013

Canadian language provider BEC Group has opened a new school in Montréal, adding to its original centre in the Rocky Mountains. The centre will provide English and French language programmes.

The new BEC-Montreal school building

"The BEC–Montréal building is newly renovated with modern facilities yet honours Montréal's architectural character, with a historic, boutique–style exterior," said Derek Keet, Assistant Director of BEC, formerly known as Banff Education Centre. He added the major universities, Mount Royal, museums and the main shopping and nightlife districts were nearby.

Explaining the move, Keet said, "When we decided to expand, Montréal was the obvious choice. The city is all about language, culture and education." He added that Montréal was one of the few cities in the world where people speak English and French, was often referred to as Canada's cultural capital, and was rated as the best student city in Canada by university ranking company QS last year.

Keet said the move was founded on the success and style of the Rocky Mountains school. "We have qualified and committed teachers. We never go over ten students per classroom. The students that study with us tend to thrive in their language learning, helping them to achieve their goals, whether it be for passing their Ielts or travelling the world with ease."

Courses at the school include English Communication, an English/French combination, Ielts Test Preparation, University Pathways and French evening classes.

Lauren Hird Rutter, Head Teacher at BEC–Montréal, said, "We are really excited that we can offer quality teaching at both BEC locations. Our lessons have a communicative focus and also work on improving students' study skills so that they can use their new language right away to accomplish their goals, and continue to learn effectively even after their time at BEC is over."
