Adult Courses

In-person in downtown Montréal or online from the comfort of your home, we offer a wide range of courses, for youth and adults, in nine languages (English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Mandarin, and Modern Arabic).

Whether you want to learn a new language or improve your language skills, the YMCA International Language School is there to support you in your learning.


At the Y, you can learn a new language at any age!

Whether for personal or professional development, learning a new language is always rewarding.

The YMCA International Language School offers dynamic and interactive small group classes taught by certified teachers.

Our language courses include many activities that encourage student discussion and help them make their new language part of their daily lives. We also have two computer labs for full-time French and English students.

True to the mission of the YMCAs of Québec, the International Language School provides financial assistance to promote access to its programs. For more information, click here.
