About the Program

Program Description

Designed for intermediate French speakers and above, this program will help you improve your French proficiency while deepening your understanding of French culture. Language courses focus on oral expression, vocabulary development, phonetics, and listening comprehension. You'll also choose elective courses focused on the culture, history, and art of France; elective courses are taught in French to complement and enhance your language learning. Elective course options increase in proportion to your language level, but all are designed to expand your language skills while expanding your knowledge of French culture.

Program Structure

You'll enroll in 1 language course at your level and 2 elective courses taught in French. Language courses meet for 40 contact hours/3 credits; electives meet for 20 contact hours/1 credit. You may earn a total of 5 credits (up to 80 contact hours).

Classes meet Monday-Friday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays.

You’ll take a language placement test after you arrive in Grenoble. Registration will then be finalized on-site, based on the results of your language placement test. If you don’t test at the intermediate level or higher, you'll be moved to the Intensive Language Program (additional fees may apply). It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home university pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for France. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
