Location of the English School in Ottawa

Our language school is located in the heart of downtown Ottawa. In a matter of minutes, students can be inside nearby art galleries, museums, and the world-famous ByWard Market, known for its outdoor shops and a diverse range of local and international restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

Our Accommodation

In order to ensure that your English course is as successful as possible, you need somewhere to relax and recharge after each eventful day. You get to choose between living with a local host family or living in our very own residence, where you'll meet other Sprachcaffe students.

Staying in a homestay will give you an unparallelled opportunity to get to know local people, practice your English as much as possible and engage with the Canadian culture. This doesn't mean that you won't get opportunities to practice English outside the classroom if you choose the residence accommodation option. Our students in the residence regularly practise English together, and it is often the easiest way to communicate between two students from completely different countries.

Optional Activities

Tourism in Ottawa

There is plenty to do while in Ottawa, including winter sports, shopping, visiting markets and museums, exploring the city and surrounding countryside or just simply relaxing.

Culture in Ottawa

Since Ottawa is the nation’s capital, it is overflowing with Canadian culture. The city is home to many famous landmarks, museums, institutions, government buildings, memorials and heritage sites. In order to preserve its beauty and historical relevance, Ottawa has restrictions on building heights. This prevents the skyline from rising above the Parliament buildings.

Besides being the home of the government, Ottawa has many cultural events and festivals scheduled throughout the year. In fact, the city’s festival industry received the IFEA World Festival and Event City Award In 2010.

The most exiting sights in Ottawa

Parliment Hill

One of the most important sights in Ottawa is Parliment Hill. This is a hill on which the Parliament building is located. During your visit, you can book a guided tour to see the building. There are also beautiful gardens in front of the building and statues depicting personalities from Canadian history.

Rideau Canal

This canal is special because it is the oldest continuously used waterway in North America. To really explore the canal, you have the option of taking a tour. But the best time to go is in winter, when you can skate on the Rideau Canal.


The Winterlude is a winter festival that has been held annually in Ottawa since 1979. The biggest attraction is the Rideau Canal Skateway, the largest skating rink in the world at 7.8 km. You can also admire beautiful ice sculptures and play in a snow playground. Other Winterlude activities showcase Canada's cultural, artistic and culinary diversity.
