"I needed to learn some French because I'll be relocating to Canada next year. My Business French course was great - my teacher was real professional, and if I had any questions she was happy to answer them. Can't believe how quickly I got into it."
Belfast factsThe historic capital of Northern Ireland, Belfast is the second largest city on the island of Ireland, after Dublin, with a population of over 275,000 in the city limits alone. Famous for its shipbuilding (the Titanic was built here in 1912, and Belfast also sports the largest drydock in the world), Belfast has been for a long time an industrial city, with industries such as linen, rope-making, tobacco and heavy engineering thriving by the end of the 19th century. However, the city is not without its greenery, with over 40 public parks; and is also a cultural and academic centre, earning it the nickname The Athens of Ireland.
