About the Program

Program Description

This program is designed for high-beginning and above French speakers and helps you improve your French language proficiency in a short period of time. Enroll in a French language course designed for your language level with a focus on oral expression, vocabulary development, and listening comprehension. Practice your new skills in academic outings and cultural activities, such as theater performance or festivals, then discuss your experiences in class as part of your coursework. If you enroll in consecutive sessions, you’ll be tested at the end of the session and, if appropriate, advance to a higher language level for the next session.

Program Structure

Choose a 4-week session in June, July, or combine both. Each session, you'll enroll in 1 language course. Courses meet for 80 contact hours/5 credits over the session. You may earn 5 credits per session (up to 80 contact hours); if you choose to combine June and July sessions, you may earn up to 10 credits (up to 160 contact hours).

Classes meet daily in the morning, Monday-Friday, and on Wednesday afternoons you'll participate in academic outings. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays.

You'll take a written language placement exam before you arrive in Aix and a brief oral placement exam when you arrive in Aix. Based on the results, you'll be placed in a language class at your language level. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before youleave for France. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

Where You'll Study
