Language courses - hybrid session

In response to the health crisis that has been ongoing since March 2020, the Maison de l'amitié has adjusted to continue to offer language courses in the best possible conditions. Our online experiment has proven to be a success, as this initiative has allowed several hundred students to continue or begin their language learning despite social distancing or even isolation, thus weaving a energizing web of communication and motivation around our communities. 

In the hope that the situation will continue to improve as it seems to have done for the past few months, and to prepare for the long-awaited reestablishment of a normal rhythm of life, the Maison de l'amitié is now embarking on the path of a return to in-class learning by adopting a hybrid formula for this new session. We will offer some French and English courses at the Maison de l'amitié's headquarters (120 Duluth East), taking into account the capacity of our classrooms and the distancing guidelines. The other courses will be offered on the Zoom platform. 

On-site course details

  • Max number of students varies depending on classroom capacity

  • 3 hour courses, with at least one break

  • Student's manual is included and will be provided during the first class

  • On-site students must be double-vaccinated

Online course details

  • 12 students maximum per class

  • 2.5 hour courses, with at least one break

  • Use of the Zoom platform - all the information you need to get started will be communicated to you

Technical requirements for using Zoom

  • The use of a computer is strongly recommended. If you don't have one, you can use a tablet or cell phone, but this is not recommended as these can present technical challenges.

  • You will need a high-speed internet connection, a camera and a microphone (if you use a laptop, the camera and microphone are normally integrated).

  • You must have a web browser (Chrome recommended). You can also use firefox, but avoid using Internet Explorer.
