Program description

This non-credit diploma program is open to adults at all levels of proficiency. It features five levels, each level taking a full academic year (fall and spring term) to complete. As participants can enter the program at any level, based on an initial level assessment, the program can be completed in one to five years.

Levels one and two meet twice a week for two hours. Levels three to five meet once a week for three hours. Evening classes are offered at all levels, and a daytime option is offered at some levels if enrolment permits.

The mandate of this program is to provide members of the community with educational programs to achieve an advanced command of the French language and a detailed knowledge of the Francophone culture in Canada and of Francophone cultures in the world.
