Navigating the city: Montreal is a bilingual Canadian city and M.I.L.A language school teaches both French and English. The De La Savane metro station (orange line) is just 3 minutes from the school entrance making it easy for students to navigate around Montreal. Montreal downtown is 35 minutes by metro from the school on the orange line and it is here that students will find the main attractions of the city including the Notre-Dame Basilica, the Modern Museum of Fine Arts and the Royal Park.

Location: The school is situated in The Triangle neighbourhood with shops, bars and gyms all within walking distance from the main building. The facilities available at M.I.L.A include a cafeteria, a computer room, a lounge, a movie room, an outdoor patio, a student support desk and free unlimited high speed internet and Wi-Fi access.

Accreditation: M.I.L.A is accredited by Languages Canada / CAPLS and affiliated with other institutes.

Course structure: There are 3 courses available at the school: a semi-intensive programme, a premium intensive programme and a super intensive programme. The Premium course also includes the option to join a workshop, a reading club or tutorials. The Super Intensive programme provides students with a selection of elective courses to specialise in an area of specific interest to the individual. These elective courses are not available for complete beginners.

Teaching style: The size of the class is between 6 - 12, small enough for good student teacher ratios but large enough for practical group work. The teachers are all highly trained and have different teaching methods at hand to mould the learning to the needs of the group. There is student monitoring throughout the course for suggestive improvements and to build confidence in the areas each student is strong in. This is a very motivating technique in learning a language and really encourages participation.
