    Mon Français es donc je pense que je vais être capable de se débrouiller dans le département des langues.

    Tips, hints, recommendations and what such would be appreciated.

    hahaha you wouldn't need to know a lot of french to get by anyway

    Montreal's amazing!

    In May the weather would be a lot milder, it would be great time to take a hike up Mont Royal, or take a stroll by the old port.

    Club wise, I think Sky, Parking, and Unity are your best bets, so much fun!

    I'm not from there, but I've been there a few times, so my suggestions are mostly from the 'tourist' point of view.

    1. Head down to Old Montreal and the old port area and just wander around. The promenade down there is nice just to wander. You can then easily walk around the old town.

    2. Go to the Olympic park. I did the guided tour which is pretty cool. If the weather is nice, try and go up to the top of the Tower. The views are great; however, if the weather is sucky don't do it (and you may not be able to, because they don't run the car to the top if the weather is bad).

    3. Go to the Parc du Mont-Royal and walk up the to various look outs. Again, if the weather is nice you'll get stunning views across the city,. At the foot of the Parc you can then walk around McGill university if you want, it's a nice campus.

    4. If you can spare a day or two, go to Quebec City. It's really pretty and definitely worth going there.

    Hope you have a great time!

    Sky -- a bit of an older/ bear-ish crowd I find

    Parking - really fun kind of like Unity but a little more alternative and edgy, no longer exists though

    Unity - your typical main 18-26 top 40 gay club

    There's a new club that just opened up called Apollon, I went last week and it was pretty good. I would say its a mix between Parking and Unity

    Unity for sure. La Rockette is a nice little bar that has really good music. Foodwise, check out La Banquise: yummy (but not very healthy) poutine, and they are open 24 hours. Perhaps Juliette et Chocolat as well.
