Advance your French language skills quickly in this two-week Summer Intensive. Reimagined for online delivery, our course improves your French skills with a focus on practical conversation along with cultural workshops and activities. Learn in a virtual, real-time classroom with our encouraging and experienced instructors.
Beginner 1: For those with little or no previous knowledge of French. Learn to share information about yourself in French and ask basic questions of those around you.
Beginner 2 and Lower Intermediate: You already have experience with French through a conversational beginner course. Add to your basic vocabulary in everyday situations and start forming compound and complex sentences. You will focus on speaking correctly and distinguishing between the past, present and future tenses.
Intermediate and Advanced: You are able to hold a conversation on a variety of topics, but still need improvement in more complex grammatical structures and complex sentence formation. You will improve your grammar and vocabulary through interesting conversational exercises such as debates, presentations, cultural discussions and small group work using authentic materials.

About Online Learning
Our online conversational language classes offer you a real-time virtual classroom where you can see and interact with your teacher and classmates. Each day, you login at a set time to your virtual classroom using our easy-to-use learning management platform, Canvas. Just like in a classroom, you do individual, pair and group work, ask questions and receive verbal feedback from your instructor. Outside of class, you can access handouts and other materials online at your own pace and rhythm. Expect a similar schedule to your face-to-face experience – minus the commute.
