Travel diary – Studying in Montreal

CDV Montréal

Paul, a final year engineering student at Télécom Saint-Étienne, tells us about his experience at the Ecole de Technologie Supérieure in Montreal, Canada. This exchange takes place via the BCI.

Paul:“After a little hesitation between various destinations I chose to go to Montreal. Having always lived in Saint-Étienne, I wanted to discover a bigger city, and on that aspect I was not disappointed. Canada also attracted me a lot by its nature: its huge parks, its lakes, its forests, I wanted to discover all that!

In spite of a little time to adapt to the expressions and the Quebec accent, I am not lost because the culture is quite similar to ours. Montreal is a very multicultural city, you go from French to English depending on the neighbourhood and you meet people from all over the world. The eating habits are quite similar to ours, but much more Americanised. Moreover, you can eat food from all over the world in the many restaurants

The health situation is similar to ours. Once you have a Canadian health pass and a mask, you can do almost anything as you would normally.

As there are a lot of foreigners and students in the city, you quickly meet a lot of people because the atmosphere is very favourable.”
