Course Code: CEFR 525
Me and my future in Québec.
This is the first level of francais intermédiare. That means you're feeling pretty comfortable. But there's still work to be done. In this course, you'll continue to refine your speaking skills and gain confidence through group discussions, debates and presentations. You'll be thinking more often in French, forming opinions and expressing them with growing ease. You might even start imagining your futur au Québec. Best of all, you'll be able to share your dreams with others... en français.
