French

UBC Award of Achievement Program

Students in a UBC Extended Learning French class, along with their instructor, Frédéric Jombart, talk about their experiences.

Being able to communicate across cultures is key to understanding our multicultural world. In bilingual Canada, as in many other parts of the world, speaking even a little French allows you to engage more effectively with French-speaking friends, neighbours, colleagues or clients.

The UBC Award of Achievement in French enhances your knowledge of francophone cultures, prepares you for travel or increases your career opportunities. You gain insight into another culture and way of thinking, enhancing your cross-cultural skills and your ability to adapt to different cultural and linguistic situations.
