French as a Second Language

A World of Opportunity

In preparing our graduates to thrive in an ever-changing world and to be global citizens, our French as a Second Language programs offer hands-on, authentic language learning opportunities based on Action Oriented Tasks. We have adopted many of the philosophies from the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Language), and aim to build confidence and proficiency in French for all learners from our various programs.

Educators in all programs are dedicated to developing an interest in life-long language learning for all students.
