Course Code: CEFR 325
Me and my life in Québec
Level 3 means you already have some basic ability in French. Now it's time to build on it. And what better way than by learning how to vivre au Québec! In this course, you'll learn how to give and take directions (très important!) You'll gain practice speaking on the telephone, ordering food at a restaurant, talking about trips, films you've seen or an activity you took part in. In short, you'll do what the locals do: chat with friends. Sure, there will be some formal exercises, but mostly, you'll be interacting with people... en français!
