If there's one thing that's really hard to do in Montreal, it's finding a job when you don't speak French.
And even if you do find one, chances are it won't be your dream job.
So if you want to get the job YOU WANT, there are basically 3 solutions:
- Hope to get lucky in the job market
- Or suck it up and learn some French.
You do live in Quebec after all, so at the very least, you should probably consult this French Canadian Common Expression Translator.
If you need a little bit more vocabulary than that, though, and don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on French courses that you're not guarantee to stick with it, why not try one of the following FREE courses.
