Hi cathy,
I always refer to this site before our trips to Montreal. They are very current with what is going on, weather, all you need to know.
Have a great time!

You don't have to worry about not speaking French in Montreal, nearly everyone is bi-lingual. Most of the live theater however is in French. The one exception is the Centaur in Old Montreal which is an English language playhouse.There should be some performances happening somewhere that aren't language dependant, such as a ballet, concert, etc. Another memorable night would be to go to a Spanish restaurant that features live flamenco dancing - there are a few downtown. Another fun evening might be strolling on St. Denis, checking out the shops, and eating in a restaurant that strikes you. There are lots of options on St. Denis, and most things are open late.

Agreed with Zootsi,

Montreal is Bi-lingual, actually it also has a huge Asian populations as well, so let's just say it's multi-cultural, I speak better Spanish than French, actually I am hopeless at French. I live in Toronto and visited Montreal, it's nice, check out Old Montreal and walk around, go to Chinatown again very close to Old Montreal. I think the highlight of Montreal is really just walking around the various streets, it' so lively and exciting (and I went in Fall)!!
