Intended for those who have some knowledge of French, this course provides students with the opportunity to become proficient, focused, autonomous French language learners through complete immersion in French language and culture in Tours, France. The course’s main objective is to provide a communicative learning environment through activities based in real-world, everyday contexts, as well as an introduction to French culture of the Touraine region. Specific course content will depend on language placement according to the Institut de Touraine. Students must write the in-person Faculty of Arts & Science (St. George) Department of French placement test upon their return to Toronto to determine their appropriate next level.
