French as a Second Language
French proficiency is a valuable asset, in so many ways.
The FRENCH Program (French as a Second Language) is for anglophones and allophones who want to learn to interact in French, verbally and in writing, and are also smitten with the French language and culture.
Students who wish to enroll in the French as a Second Language program or FRENCH courses must take a placement test. For more information, consult PLACEMENT TEST.
Since there is more to French than just grammar, the program is comprised of a range of French language, literature, linguistic and culture courses, providing quality, comprehensive training in the field.
Further, courses take into account francophone cultural events happening in the area, in which faculty and students alike take part. While participating in these events, students are in direct contact with francophones and the francophone culture.
