At the Intermediate and Advanced level, you should be able to understand most common and non-technical speech in French, and be able to hold a fairly fluent conversation on a variety of topics.
In this course, focus on improving your conversational fluency by acquiring more complex grammatical structures and sentence formation. Possible grammar topics, based on student needs, may include the advanced level verb tenses (conditional, future anterior, and introduction to subjunctive,) or use of relative pronouns. Increase your language spontaneity through interesting conversational exercises such as debates, presentations, cultural discussions, and small group work using French articles, poetry, websites and more.
Explore French language and culture in an enjoyable, interactive environment, guided by an experienced, native-speaking instructor. For extra practice between classes, you can access resources chosen by your instructor using our online system, Moodle.

This course can be applied to the UBC Certificate in French Language and Culture.
