Focus on Your French Learning in Winnipeg

Learn French in the Prairies

When we think of learning French in Canada, most people usually think of cities like Montreal or Quebec City with their cobbled streets and historic, European architecture. Winnipeg, located in the heart of Manitoba, is a city most Canadians associate with the region鈥檚 expansive prairies, rivers, and Louis Riel, one of the country鈥檚 most famous politicians. Why would anyone consider Winnipeg as a place to learn French?

French Culture in Winnipeg

Take a closer look into the city and you may be surprised that there is a flourishing scene for culture and the arts, academics, and the neighbourhood of St. Boniface, the heart of the Franco-Manitoban community. In this neighbourhood, you will find the gorgeous St. Boniface Cathedral along with Western Canada鈥檚 only French Language university, Universite de St-Boniface. St. Boniface is also the birthplace of some of Canada鈥檚 most prolific Francophone figures, like author Gabrielle Roy and hockey player Jonathan Toews.聽

Winnipeg is also home to the Metis community, a unique Canadian community descended from unions between the First Nations peoples and French settlers. For nearly 150 years, Francophone Metis people made up the majority of the Manitoba area. Louis Riel, a famous Metis leader and politician, occupies a place in nearly every book on Canadian history for leading the Red River Rebellion, which ultimately led to the establishment of Manitoba as a province and the creation of French separate schools for Metis children.

More recently, Winnipeg established the Francophone Community Enhancement Act, putting funding in place to contribute to the vitality of the French-Manitoban community. Add all this to the fact that Winnipeg is a beautiful city nestled at the forks of the Red and Assiniboine rivers - with a significantly lower cost of living than Vancouver and Toronto - and you have the perfect place to study French.

The Benefits of Learning French

Learning French in Canada has numerous advantages that can enrich your life both personally and financially. First of all, learning a new language can broaden your intellect by deepening your appreciation of French Canadian culture. France, previously a colonial superpower, has mixed culturally and linguistically with countries all over the world, resulting in a myriad of dialects and influences on food and art.聽

The long-lasting influence of French culture is present in modern day North America. Take the French dialects of the Quebecois or French-Manitobans, which vary greatly from the French you might hear in Paris. Try the deliciously unique flavours of Cajun food in the American South, which has roots in the Acadian people that were deported from the area of New France, now modern day Atlantic Canada.聽

Speaking French can also lead to numerous career opportunities all over Canada, and is considered an asset by most employers. Check job listings in Canada and there is always a need for bilingual workers who can communicate with the country鈥檚 large French speaking markets. An ability to speak French is an easy way to be more competitive in the workplace and be a real, vital part of the country鈥檚 French community.

Travel much? French speaking countries are all around the world, most notably France itself. French is the sixth most spoken language in the world, and is an official language in Belgium, Switzerland, Madagascar, Monaco, and so many more places. Being able to communicate in a country you are traveling in can enrich and transform your holidays, and if you prefer to travel independently, you can get all the satisfaction of ordering in restaurants or getting directions on your own. You will also be able to connect and converse with local speakers, which can greatly improve your speaking abilities and enable you to have a richer experience of a place.聽

Where to Learn French in Winnipeg

Winnipeg offers plenty of options for learning French, from beginners to advanced speakers looking for an immersive experience. Check out the Alliance Francaise, the largest cultural organization in the world teaching French in over 37 countries. Adults and children will find a French course here, and can prepare you for French proficiency exams like the DELF. The school is also a cultural hub where you can attend events and film screenings related to all things French.

Postsecondary Options

The Universite de St. Boniface has a fantastic range of French courses to choose from in their Continuing Education program. You will find courses for learning conversational French, French for Immigrants, Advanced Level French, and even French for Civil Servants. Because the school is French speaking, you will surely be immersed in a culture and environment that enables language acquisition to thrive.

Many of Manitoba鈥檚 other postsecondary schools offer options for learning French, both in person and online. The Red River College offers French courses alongside many other exciting choices like Ojibway, Chinese, and Spanish. You will also degree programs in French Studies at the University of Winnipeg: you will simply take a placement test to determine the best course, or take a beginners course if you are just starting on your journey as a French Language Learner. Adult learners can also find courses with many of Winnipeg鈥檚 school divisions: classes for retirees or night classes are available for much lower fees than you might find at a University.

Get a Private French Tutor

When it comes to learning French, having a private French tutor can be an excellent option. A private tutor can supplement the program you are taking, help prepare you for a DELF exam, or can be a way to get a bespoke learning experience if you are preparing for a European holiday or planning to work with French clients. With a private tutor, you can have all the flexibility when it comes to time or developing the right curriculum for your learning.

Develop Speaking Skills

With a tutor, you can really focus on developing the speaking skills needed to converse and improve your automaticity in conversation and real-world contexts. Large French classes may help you learn the basics of grammar and lead you to learn language through writing activities, but it is nearly impossible to get the one-to-one or small group immersive practice that is needed to truly develop your skills as a speaker. Having a tutor for a weekly or bi-weekly session to help you get through assignments or simply only speak French to you will go a long way in your learning.

Focus on Specific French Skills

Finally, having a private French tutor can help you to really focus on areas of need. Perhaps you are simply struggling with irregular verbs or passe compose, or maybe you need to learn the kind of French you will need to communicate in a specific industry or sector. Maybe you have a child that is struggling in their French immersion program or high school course. Private tutoring is a budget friendly and efficient solution to getting the practice and instruction that you truly need.
