Our Language Courses

Cartier Language School provides training programs for French as a second language for Canadian federal government employees in these Public Service Commission of Canada language classifications:


BBB   |   CBC   |   CCC 


The content, methods and outcomes of our language training programs are aligned with the standards and objectives of the Canada School of Public Service. All our programs meet the linguistic requirements of the Public Service Commission (PSC).

We are highly familiar with the exam format of the PSC and dedicate our efforts to preparing students for success in that area. Our language courses build comprehension, conversation and listening skills, all centred on the vocabulary of the working environment.

You can take advantage of our full-time program or choose from any number of part-time courses and workshops. We also offer one-on-one individualized coaching. For your convenience, all programs are offered right in your workplace.

We use a wide variety of teaching resources, including computerized programs and audio-visual material.

At the end of each course, all learners are assessed and can choose new courses and/or move up a level in their current course.

Cartier Language School provides high-quality French language training programs for private-sector clientele, as well as for the Canadian federal government.

We’re happy to discuss your language learning needs.  Please contact us for more information.
