French Language Conversation Classes (FLCC) is a club you’ll be glad you joined! You’ll meet new people who want to learn a new language in a fun, stimulating and relaxed atmosphere, among friends.
FLCC is open to the general public. You don’t need any formal education or previous knowledge of French to take these classes.
- a friendly atmosphere
- an encouraging learning environment
- a communicative approach
- the most current materials and techniques
- a small time commitment: just one two-hour class each week
Whether you’re a full- or part-time student, professional, retired or stay-at-home parent, these classes will help you learn French!
FLCC offers three 10-week sessions per year, in the fall, spring and summer. Classes are usually offered in the evening, with a few morning sections as well so you can choose the option that best fits your schedule if there is a choice at your level. There are no required textbooks and no exams in FLCC.
Classes are offered at different levels: you choose the level you are most comfortable with (pre-novice, novice, conversant, advanced). You can take each level as many times as you wish: each session is different, based on the interests and needs of each class.
There’s no rush to get to the next level: you decide when you’re ready to move up. The only exception to this is the pre-novice level class, which is meant for complete beginners, and usually only taken once.
Students who prefer a program that normally takes them from one level to the next are encouraged to take a course in our French Language Diploma Program instead.
You also have access to the many language resources available at UVic, including the digital language labs and the library.
