Apprenez à parler anglais “comme un pro” avec les programmes de l’Université McGill

L’Université McGill à Montréal est certainement l’établissement d’études supérieures le plus renommé du Canada. Mais saviez-vous que l’école proposait des programmes d’apprentissage et de perfectionnement d’anglais “professionnel”, pour les étudiants comme pour les actifs ?



Andrea Emrick

"I was looking to work in a French environment, and I think I could do that now. It really provided the foundation for me to be able to write emails, draft reports, and understand that it’s not just a matter of translation. You eventually get to the point where you can think in French."
