About the Program
Hone your French in an intensive program designed for students at all language levels. Attend class alongside other international students from around the world as you improve your written and oral French language skills and immerse into local culture in Grenoble. The program is broken into 4-week blocks; at the end of each block, you'll take a language test and may be moved into a higher level. Not only do you have the potential to earn credits at multiple language levels, you'll also master a variety of French language concepts in a short period of time. Courses focus on oral and written expression, vocabulary development, and listening comprehension.

Choose a 4-week session in June, July, or both. Each 4-week course meets for 80 contact hours/5 credits. You may earn a total of 5 credits (up to 80 contact hours) per session; if you combine two sessions, you may earn up to 10 credits (up to 160 contact hours).
Classes meet for 4 hours per day, Monday-Friday; you'll spend 3 hours in the classroom and 1 hour in the language lab. 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. 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.
