The Intensive Program is an intensive program that lasts 5 weeks instead of 10 weeks.

The class meets twice a week for a total of 5 hours each week.

It is designed for 3 levels of students : beginner (101), advanced beginner (103) and basic (201).

For instance, for the beginner class, after having successfully completing this course, you will be able to introduce yourself and others, answer basic questions regarding your life and express personal likes and dislikes. You will also have learned the French alphabet, numbers and basic vocabulary. You will be able to ask and answer questions about personal details such as where you live, people you know and things you own, describe or make simple requests and invitations, understand date and time, and explain basic hopes and opinions.



INTENSIVE 1 -  BEGINNER  - Monday 7:30pm and Thursday 7:30pm

From January 6, 2020 to February 6, 2020



We require all prospective students with previous experience studying French or living in a French speaking country to take a placement test to determine their appropriate level before registering.
Once completed, an instructor will call you at your preferred time.

The placement test takes between 15-20 minutes to complete. Once we receive the results of your placement test, one of our professors will contact you directly for a quick conversation in French. They will then let you know your level and schedule options for your course.

If you are a complete beginner, your level is 101, and your class will be Intensive 1.

If you had French in the past, the best way for us to know your level is by giving you a placement test.
