Watch this short video about why our online Language program is one of the best in the country!
You will have the opportunity to review and practice your French while learning about French and Francophone cultures. Using authentic cultural material, we will work on building vocabulary, listening and writing skills, reviewing grammar and improving conversational abilities.
Prerequisite: French 2.
You will practice speaking in weekly one-hour online sessions led by an experienced instructor, with a maximum of 12 participants.
The live online sessions begin one week after the scheduled course start date to allow time to work through the first unit of learning material in preparation for the live conversation practice.
Online course materials introduce new grammar and vocabulary and teach pronunciation, listening, and reading skills through videos, audio, and interactive exercises. Budget 3-4 hours a week to work through the online asynchronous content.
Course materials become available online on the scheduled course start date and remain accessible for one month after the course ends.
