An international student who comes from a mainly English-speaking Asian country, I am interested in applying to McGill arts (probably majoring in Political science and economics).
But, is knowledge of the French language necessary to survive in there academically and socially? Being aware that it is located in Montreal where French is the official language, I am afraid that I might be left out as I can't speak and understand French.
And does McGill really have many many international students there?
I would really appreciate if anyone who has, is currently attending, or has friends from McGill, shares your experience :)
