Course Code: CEFR 355
Level 3 means you already have some basic ability in French. Félicitations!
Now it's time to build on it. And what better way than by learning how to vivre au Québec. This course will help you enrich your vocabulary so you can express yourself more spontaneously in personal, socio-cultural and professional environments. You'll acquire greater proficiency and communication strategies and you'll take part in activities and projects that bring the French language and culture to life. Sure, there will be some formal exercises, but mostly, you'll be interacting with people... en français.
*This course is the afternoon component of level 3 in the full-time French program. Students must be enrolled in Conversation Française level 3 to take this course.
