Edmonton Second Language and Bilingual Schools

Edmonton Bilingual Schools

Edmonton’s diversity is varied and colourful.

Back to school season is here! Stores are filled with excited parents (and maybe a few disappointed children) as they prepare for the new school session.

Now that school is just about started, a lot of our conversations among the team has been about language schools, and in particular, bilingual schools—schools that may offer immersion or second language education in central Alberta.

One of the greatest things about raising a family in or around Edmonton is the diversity of cultures and perspectives we encounter here. People from all over the world wind up settling in Edmonton, Spruce Grove, Leduc Sherwood Park or Stony Plain. This has been the tradition here for hundreds, if not thousands of years. But today, we see this diversity blooming in our education system, which now provides bilingual education in 8 international languages.

And for our children, learning a second language has incredible health, communication and advancement benefits. Children who learn multiple languages have well-exercised minds, develop high communication skills and can achieve great advancement opportunities in the future.

So we wanted to list the Edmonton schools that offer second language and immersion classes so you can have an idea what languages are available and where you might find those classes.

Being a real estate team that provides service in many of these languages (and some languages that are not taught in the current school system), Edmonton Home Pros understands the importance of language and culture in making buying decisions that support our families and communities. We hope that if you are considering buying or selling a home in Edmonton or any of the above communities, get in touch with us.

Why Buy or Sell a Home in Spruce Grove?

Wed, 13 Aug by edmontonhomepros
Spruce Grove Grain Elevator

Spruce Grove is a town with limitless natural charm and history, including the Grain Elevator Museum.

There are few cities in Alberta that can boast an active lifestyle, booming industrial and retail business, big-city amenities and environmental sustainability. Spruce Grove is definitely smaller than Edmonton, but families discover numerous advantages when they consider buying or selling a home in Spruce Grove. Situated 11 km west of Edmonton along Highway 16A, Alberta’s 9th largest city mixes small-town community spirit with enough nature to get lost in it.

Spruce Grove has been seen as a desirable settlement since 1879, when homesteaders first settled and tilled the land for crops. Today, just under 30,000 people call Spruce Grove home, which is a 20% increase over 2010 population levels. This upswing in growth could further bolster homes in Spruce Grove as sound investment properties.

One possible factor influencing this growth is the outcrop of modern industrial parks and zones. These new facilities have attracted new medium and large businesses to the area, drawing in new homebuyers that seek short commutes to work. Transport, engineering and infrastructure companies enjoy the competitive rates, Trans Canada Highway access and railway infrastructure.

At the same time, Spruce Grove’s rustic character encourages families to develop an outdoor lifestyle, one that remains active all year long. The TransAlta Tri Leisure Centre and the West District Park provide families and youth indoor and outdoor activity.

But one of the most memorable attractions is Spruce Grove’s Heritage Grove Trail, which is a network of trails that run throughout the city and city limits. Over 30 km of trail is available year round for activities like snowshoeing, biking, running and cross-country skiing. Even with widespread use, Heritage Grove never feels overcrowded, and any business adds a friendly dimension to winter activities. Find out more about Spruce Grove homes and family-focused activities here.

As one of Alberta’s fastest growing cities, it makes sense to consider buying or selling a home in Spruce Grove. The active lifestyle, growing population and thriving industrial sector have made Spruce Grove an attractive investment option for people seeking big city advantages with opportunities to get captivated by nature.
