Two 1.5 hour sessions in the morning and one more hour in the afternoon were led by two different teachers. Both utilized many, many strategies that I, as a retired secondary teacher, recognized, to keep students motivated and engaged. The first 1.5 hr session focused on a new grammar lesson every day including taking up homework. The next hour was spent in listening and speaking skills, as was the afternoon session. Both teachers were always positive and encouraging, though sometimes speaking too fast for me.
The office staff were very welcoming, greeting me by name every morning. The school is located just off the square in front of the basilica, with lots of services nearby and conducive to sightseeing. Staff-led offsite tours/activities are offered daily but none ran during my stay because of lack of numbers. I found lots to do on my own. I only spent two weeks at Bli but found the time very productive and fun. My only complaint was that the classroom was too small for the number of students (11). I loved studying on the terrace of the main building.
The location is really convenient. The classes were really helpful. I didn't need the housing, so I can't tell anything about it.顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
The Montreal Campus is located in a fantastic location in Old Montreal. The teachers where very professional and knowledgeable. The class sizes were small, which allowed for individualized attention and practice.顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
I took the super intensive French course for two weeks. I was so lucky that my teachers were really competent in their job. I learned a lot. The location of the school is excellent. The classes were small but ok for up to 8 students but not more. We were 10 and it was disadvantageous especially during the class activities. Another thing is that I wish no more students had been accepted to the class after the monthly starting date. In my opinion it disrupted the class current balance. During my short visit I was not able to join the school activities and I did not use housing. But the school offers lots of housing facilities and activities. So one can find the bests of all.顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
I was in BLI doing French. I really liked that although I was only one week I felt very welcome by the group, both by the students and by the teachers. I really liked the activities that were done and that we could practice the oral part a lot. The facilities of the academy, the location, the materials they offer are excellent. The only complaint I can make is that this academy is not prepared for students who come only one week, I mean, people in this academy stay months and have a subject distributed for all those months and if you go only a week you will not be able to give all the matter.顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
I liked the classes very much. The teachers were well-trained and very easygoing, so was the staff. Location was also great, as it was downtown. There are two things I’d like to point out though: 1) the organization of rooms for classes was sometimes hectic, and 2) the certificate issued by the school should be based on the concept of hours completed, not “lessons” - a very vague term for a country as bureaucratic as Brazil, where I come from.顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
The classes were good though a little small since in both levels, one and two, there didn’t seem to be enough room. But despite that minor detail class was great because the rest of my peers were extremely talkative and nice as well as both my teachers. I love how we’re forced to talk in French while on school premises and happy we got so many varieties of activities during class to keep things interesting.顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
The classes at Bli were different from and more challenging than any other language class I have taken. I appreciated the multi cultural environment and found that the challenge of speaking French with people who did not speak English as a first language pushed me to have more confidence and flexibility when using French. I was content with my teachers and the location and facilities. It was a huge plus to be in the center of old Montréal and very close to a metro stop. I was nervous to begin classes, but I was pleasantly surprised by the inviting atmosphere and fulfilling experience I had. I was also very happy to meet people from around the world and make good friends that I plan to keep in touch with.顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...

I spent only one week taking the beginner level classes, mostly refreshing what I learned about French zillion years ago. I think taking the class is a great way to get you off the ground. The immersive environment is very helpful, prompting you to listen to and speakFrench. The progress of the classes was a bit slow, but it might just be because I’d learned a little bit of French before. It could be helpful if we can get something to listen to at home, as hearing is perhaps a more challenging part. But we can easily find something on YouTube nowadays, so that’s probably not so essential. People are very friendly there, which is another thing I liked. Location is also great, at the heart of Montreal. Would’ve been wonderful if I had come for personal vacation rather than a business trip. The classroom was a bit cramped but I was told that we were moving to a larger room had I stayed.顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
Likes: professors were well prepared. Good review of grammar. Lots of opportunity to speak
Dislikes: some of the activities were repetitive
I was at BLI for only one week of intensive French. It is possibly the best language instruction I have had in my life. BLI has developed a clever and rigorous curriculum that draws everyone meaningful interaction in French. For example, we would be given a list of items to discuss, such as "describe your first car." Then we would divide into small groups and take turns going through the list. So we were sharing stories of our lives with other people from all over the world. So I was not merely learning the language, but also overcoming inhibitions and creating confidence in my abilities.
The classes were small and were in small rooms so that it was easy to draw everyone into participation. The only negative was that there was sometimes distracting noise from other classrooms.
The registration, placement, and orientation process was excellent. Everyone in my class seemed to be at exactly the right level. There was no student who dominated the class, nor any who did not participate.
Montréal is such an awesome city.The whole city seems exuberant in its revival of French language and culture. If I wanted to speak French, often people would wait patiently for me to gather my thoughts and then respond in a way that I could understand.
I arranged my own housing through AirBnb and was fortunate to have had a host who spoke mostly French. I walked about a mile to class each day through beautiful neighborhoods where local people were starting their day.
Thank you for your review and opinions about our school, programs and Montreal.
We were excited and happy to have you here. We would like to see you again in the future.
Language Internationale offer a fantastic
Matthew ( my broker )!has been very
Professional and helpful with everything ..
I am very happy about the service
Everything was perfect !
Nothing to complain about ...
Thanks and Best Regards
I thought the pace of the class content was appropriate and interesting
The location of the school is great, very central in old Montreal.
The facilities were great too, computers and space to self study, as well as many activities to get to know Montreal and other students while practicing French.
The only negative point I can think of is that ability to understand and speak French seemed to vary a bit in the middle levels. Teachers needed to focus on some weaker students more, which in my opinion reduced the pace and the overall experiences for the other students. I am aware though that can happen anywhere and I know that the teachers were aware of this issue.
I really enjoyed my time in BLI Montrèal. I felt that my understanding of french improved a lot and the fact that only french was spoken really helped. I enjoyed learning about the culture and history of Montrèal as well. I liked the fact that the lessons followed a theme but were not so structured that only one topic was talked about in the lesson. It was also easy to ask questions if I needed help.顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
The classes were what i wanted. I was in group of max 4 students and i really liked that. I could practice the whole time and every question that i had was fully answered. The only negative point is that when you read the description of the classes online, you think that there will be a different focus in the different courses. For me, it was hard to find these different, it was a bit all the same.
The location was very, very nice. The location is perfect, especially if you stay at EVO vieux-Montreal, like i did. The metro station is nearby, but also culture and cafés. Indoors, it was always clean. I really appreciated the maps of the school that hung out, but also that you were given a map.
I went on the Toronto and Niagara Falls trip, this was a really good price and i was really glad that i went along with that trip. This is the only really negative point of my trip: on the trip everybody spoke Spanish, even the instructors. Some couldn't even understand English. I think that on activities that are with BLI, so BLI instructors, they have to talk English or french.
The welcome at BLI was very good, only you don't get the chance to meet other people, so the first week was really hard to find friends, because there wasn't initiative from the school. I think this could be different.
My housing in residence EVO Vieux-Montreal was very pleasant. I was really pleased with my room and the facilities. A major negative point is, when you arrive they give you NO INFORMATION. I found out how things worked 2 WEEKS, because of what people told me.
There is not a map of the building, information about opening hours, there suppose to be a restaurant... never even found it. Also when you arrive, there is NOTHING in the room. I arrived at 9 pm. There wasn't any toilet paper, and all the shops were closed. I think they should definitely look in to this issue, because this was a bit of a disappointment for me.
My personal experience was so good. I liked the classes structure. The teachers had experience to teach for foreigners. The location was excellent, downtown, near Notre Dame cathedral with easy access. The activities were well planned.顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
I enjoyed the location and the small classrooms. The location was important because one could practice their French when stopping to buy food or drink in a local establishment. The teachers I had were very energetic and enthusiastic about teaching. It made it some of the students, including myself, less nervous, and more likely to participate in class.
One thing I would have liked to have had before entering the class was a syllabus or list of grammatical concepts we would be studying. On the third day, I had to take an exam on the pronouns “en” , “y” , and the imperfect tense. I had not explicitly been taught or studied these concepts before having started my week-long course.
The classes were the perfect size and you got the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. Every single teacher I had went out of their way to make sure I got the most out of the class. They could tell if you needed help with comprehension or speaking and would target that area for you during class. All around it was an amazing experience and I hope to go back one day!顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
In the heart of the Old Port of Montreal, I could not have been happier with the location of the school. It was quite easy to get to from where I was staying, and it is surrounded by cultural landmarks and fantastic restaurants and coffee shops.
I was happy with the facilities with the exception of only a couple minor criticisms. When the door to the stairway is closed and the stairway is not accessible, there would sometimes be crowds of people waiting for the elevator. Perhaps leaving the stairway accessible during school hours would be a good idea. Also, the classrooms were a little bit small and cramped at times, but when there are only 8 or less students in a class it isn't a significant problem. All of the rooms and facilities were always clean, tidy and fresh-looking.
Definitely pleased with the activities. Conversing with students and teachers outside of the classroom makes for a very enjoyable educational experience.
The classes were good; the only statement I could make is that having extended dialogues with fellow students is not always that helpful if the teacher is not listening to provide corrections. There were several times where we were instructed to have a dialogue with fellow students but we would be making grammatical mistakes without knowing until much later. However, when a teacher was present to provide immediate feedback, that was very helpful.
I have absolutely nothing but great things to say about the teachers. They are all fantastic. They were exceptional at breaking-down grammatical concepts and explaining them to students. They are all so knowledgable, patient, and a pleasure to learn from. What helped me the most was their willingness to go above and beyond to help me with my personal goals by giving me extra time and resources. I would like to especially thank Baya, Tatiana (both of them) and Elodie. They were the best French teachers I've ever had. I truly hope I get to come back to Bli sometime soon and learn from them again. I would certainly have arranged to come back much sooner - and for much longer - if the costs were more affordable. It cost me nearly as much as a full semester of university tuition for only 4 weeks of studying at Bli! If I could get a reasonable discount to extend my studies there I will definitely agree to do so. I had to leave after 4 weeks to take my DELF exam and then go back home to graduate from university.
All in all, I was extremely pleased with the school, and the teachers were incredible.
The classes are good but need more facilities the teachers are so patient and helpful I'm greatful for them I like the school's location but need more facilities in cafteria like more coffee and meals...etc
The course was not proper for beginners as Arabic natively. ...activities are good and the housing is great and I want to say here a special thanks for madam Ariela she is a good and appreciated host I'll never forget
I come to school with my love to french and I left it with passion for french
Thank you BLI
Although I only had two weeks to study French, it was two very productive weeks with great teachers and intense language diving, regretting not having taken the full-time course. In addition, I felt very safe with Francine's attachment to International Language. It is good to have minimal knowledge in French or English because when you arrive at school they pass all information in English or French, so if you do not speak both languages you can get a little lost. But the experience was great and intense. I recommend.顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
Overall I had a wonderful time at BLI. I found the classes very varied. On any given day we would always stick with a theme but not in a repetitive way. The location was great, 10 min from the harbor front and 10 min from the main shopping street in Montreal. The teachers were all very friendly and enthusiastic. There are a couple of down sides I can think of: the lunch break was too short (50 min); there was only one WC; the social activities started at 2 pm each day, but this clashed with lessons. I was housed at EVO, student housing. The facilities there were very good.顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
I enjoyed the lessons and the structure of the day helped to cover each of the topics. All the teachers were helpful and professional. The location was good, close to cafes and the harbour. The facilities were good. There was a wide range of different activities, which made it interesting! Overall it was good!顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
All in all it was just perfect, class size was good, everyone was respectful and friendly and we had a good group dynamics.
Teachers were all wonderful. Since I only took a one week course it's obviously a little difficult to evaluate how the learning process would be over a longer period of time, but for what I did, it was simply perfect.
Thank you so much for your positive review! It was a pleasure having you as a student at BLI. It will be great if you can come back to study with us in the near future - for a longer period next time :) All the best to your French studies!
The location is right in old Montreal and close to the metro, so it is a very convenient place. I didn't use the housing system.
I like the teachers there. All of them are full of passion, are patient, and experienced. The school offers a French only environment which is good for French learners, except absolutely beginners. I tried various games to help with vocabularies and conjugation.
I felt so confused though during the first day, as no one explained how my schedule would be like. That's my only complaint. By the way, my class was from 9am - 5pm and there was only a half-hour break at noon, and almost no breaks in between the two classes. So if you plan to take a full day class, it's best to bring some snacks.
Thank you for your valuable review! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed our French classes! I'm sorry to hear that you felt confused on your first day. Every Monday, we have an orientation session before the first class (9am) for new starters. If you miss the orientation, you can still ask for a quick orientation session with a school staff. Our lunch break is 50-min long and there is a 10-min break between the first and second classes. Bringing snacks is definitely a good idea so that you can be focused till the end of the day! We hope that you will study with us again in the near future - for a longer period! :)
BLI was excellent. It raised my French language level very fast and improved my language skills immediately. All the teachers I had were seriously insisting on the fact that we (the students) had to learn the language. They were not too patient and not too impatient; they provided the education with full passion and with great respect for the people in the classroom. I found everything - the expectations, the ambitions, and the way of educating - very appropriate for the level (level 1).
At the beginning, the cynicism obviously frightened me a bit, but I realised that it was not implemented to its full extent. The only thing I want to criticise in the process is actually this fact: that the teachers did not implement this toughness completely. In my opinion, people who did not make do homework (more than 1 time of course) should receive a reprimand. It seemed to be too easy to get around without making the homework. My reason for telling this is the fact that it slows the education completely down when people have not made their homework. It delays the learning, which is very annoying to the people who have completed what the students had to complete. I experienced this repeated times, and it annoyed me a lot.
Aside from this, I do not have anything else to criticise or to complain about the teachers!
My roomstay was great – except for the hostess.
The people there respected each other and interacted formidably. We had great fun.
When the hostess arrived, this changed a bit. She seemed to be more preoccupied with the earnings than actually making a proper stay for her customers. You could not really count on her, and she was not present - she was not there. For instance, she told me she would be at the place when I arrived, but instead of being present, she arrived 2 hours late. I expected a friendly and distinguished elder lady, but instead I had a money-minded not-present woman. The kitchen and the room were not well-equipped, which she certainly has to do something about.
I would definitely consider challenging myself with extremely proper and well-prepared teachers, and a well-organised school!
Thank you so much for your detailed review! We are very happy to hear that you had a great learning experience and improved your French skills a lot at BLI!
Your feedback on the homework issue in class is sent to our Academic Department and we will improve it as soon as possible.
We are very sorry that your roomstay experience did not meet your expectations. Your feedback is sent to our Accommodation Department and we will solve the issue as soon as possible.
We look forward to having you at BLI again in the near future :) Good luck with your French studies!
Firstly, I really appreciated the welcoming! The teachers and the students were very polite and it was a pleasure to go to my lessons! The lessons were great because it was a mix of games and learning! I think I have really appropriated my lessons in your school!顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
Thank you very much for your positive review! We are happy that you had a great time at our school!
We hope to have you back again, for a longer period next time! ;)
I chose this school because I have wanted to start studying English enjoyably. A class was small which means it is easy to ask, also teachers and other staff were nice and friendly.
In classes, it was also great to study because it was usually only Asian students. It was not so easy to study together with people from other countries because we have studied English in different ways, but my teachers supported me and we could help each other with classmates, and there were many students from other countries who were interested in Japanese culture, so we could study not only English but also each of our cultures.
Besides, you can hear many different accents in Montreal, which would be great when you go around over the world with English. There are many places where you should visit in Montreal and other cities in Canada. I could go to sightseeing spots in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto through activities of BLI, and visiting places with my schoolmates is still my precious experience and memory.
In last month in BLI, I also took a private class to improve speaking English more fluently. Accordingly, it was worthwhile to take and it is very helpful there were some courses I could choose. I miss BLI and Canada!
Hi Yuka! Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are very happy to hear that you could improve your English and enjoyed your BLI life! We are proud to offer small classes to our students to maximize their learning experience. It is wonderful that you learned not only Canadian/Quebecois culture but also other cultures from various countries! We hope that you will keep in touch with your international friends and come back to Canada soon!
BLI has great location in the heart of the city of Montreal, it's beautiful! I studied with only 6 students which allowed the teacher to pay attention to the difficulties of each one and I could improve my English. After the course we did activities outside to explore the city. I loved it all: teachers, course, location, city and staff!顯示詳情 » 更多資訊...
