Lugares que no puedes pederte si visitas Montreal

Montreal es una de las mejores ciudades para viajar y una de las más grandes de Canadá. Esta bella ciudad se caracteriza por su arquitectura, sus hermosos parques, sus interesantes museos y la mejor poutine del mundo. Desafortunadamente, la mayoría de la gente que viene a la ciudad no tiene tiempo suficiente para visitar todos los atractivos turísticos, por eso, te recomendamos los mejores en base a nuestra experiencia como agencia de hospedaje.

La primera parada obligatoria es la Basílica de Notre-Dame, la cual posee un estilo gótico que la convierte en la basílica más hermosa de la ciudad, está ubicada en el 110 al oeste de la calle Notre-Dame, esquina con la calle de Saint Sulpice.

La segunda parada es el puerto antiguo de Montreal donde podrás disfrutar de una interesante película IMAX en el Centro de Ciencias de Montreal o admirar la torre del reloj. También podrás disfrutar de actividades al aire libre como ciclismo, caminatas, patinaje, paseo en botes de pedales y cuatriciclos.

Además, la ciudad tiene una variedad de museos para todos los gustos, por ejemplo: el Museo de Bellas Artes de Montreal, el Museo de Historia y Arqueología Pointe-à-Callière, el Museo del Holocausto y el Chateau Ramezy, por mencionar algunos.

Finalmente, el “Reso” o “Underground City” es una ciudad subterránea que conecta las torres de oficinas, hoteles, centros y complejos comerciales. Este lugar es excelente para visitar con tu familia y amigos, con el fin de pasar la tarde, divertirte y comprar una deliciosa poutine.

Por otro lado, si te gustan los deportes te recomendamos visitar el Estadio Olímpico de Montreal. En este edificio se llevaron a cabo los juegos olímpicos de 1976. Actualmente, se llevan a cabo algunos juegos de fútbol americano y béisbol aquí, no pierdas la oportunidad de presenciar un partido en este grandioso estadio.

5 Reasons why you should send your children to study abroad

Studying abroad is a life changing experience that a lot of students are experiencing lately and it is something that will soon become necessary for every one of them.

It can be such an enriching experience and we are going to give you five reasons why you should send your children to study abroad.

1. It is good for their curriculum:

Instead of having your children spend their summer with their friends or working, you can give them the opportunity to study abroad in a fun and different environment. This experience will help them improve their curriculum as they will be able to speak more than one language, become more responsible in their academic projects, and they will be more prone to work towards concreate goals.

2. Learn to be independent and develop problem-solving skills:

Being alone in another country could be somewhat frightening for both, your children and yourself; however, this experience will help them become more independent as they will have no choice but to get things done by themselves. For example, leaving for school on time and not miss the train, cooking for themselves, cleaning up, doing laundry, etc.

At first, this might sound little convincing but have no doubt that this experience will help your children become more mature.

3. Learn new languages:

Studying abroad gives your children the opportunity to learn a new language just by diving right into the new culture from their first day abroad. Staying with a host family is a fun and easy way to practice a new language. Host Families welcome students from around the world and treat them just as another family member which could allow your children to practice the language in daily basis. Also, most schools have Intensive Language Courses, which help students boost their language level.

4. Make lifelong friendships:

While abroad, your children will feel the need to connect and interact with other people who will most likely become their friends. This is not only important for their interpersonal skills but it also represents an opportunity to meet people with different ideas with whom they can develop work projects in the future.

5. Take in a new culture:

Interacting with different cultures and getting to know new places will certainly be enriching and will help your children have a broader view of the world as they will be exposed to different ways of living, thinking, acting, doing business, working, studying, and so many other differences. This in turn, will help them evaluate and decide what the best of what they have seen and learned is better for them.

Do not wait any longer! Send your children to study abroad and give him the opportunity to know the world.
