This program is designed for high-beginning and above French speakers and helps you improve your French language proficiency in a short period of time. Enroll in a French language course designed for your language level with a focus on oral expression, vocabulary development, and listening comprehension. Practice your new skills in academic outings and cultural activities, such as theater performance or festivals, then discuss your experiences in class as part of your coursework. If you enroll in consecutive sessions, you’ll be tested at the end of the session and, if appropriate, advance to a higher language level for the next session.
