Students can enroll in beginner (FREN 110) to advanced French language classes (FREN 460/462). Prior to departure, students take an online placement exam and are placed at the appropriate level of study for onsite courses. Classes take place at the Alliance Francaise (AF) from 9am to 1pm every week (Monday - Friday), plus an afternoon session twice a week from 1:30-4:30pm, and are supplemented by cultural activities.

The methodology adopted by their qualified and experienced teachers is interactive and dynamic using innovative technologies. Courses are structured around the four fundamental competencies : oral comprehension, written comprehension, oral production, written production.



Summer 2015

French Language Study in Montreal Summer School

Dates: July 5– August 15, 2015 
Application Deadline: March 20, 2015
International Summer School

This unique French language program is designed so that Mason students can complete the full university language requirement (9 credits) in 6 weeks and is now in its fifth year!

Open to beginning, intermediate, and advanced students. Classes explore French vocabulary, grammar, language functions (agreeing and disagreeing, for instance), reading, writing, listening, speaking, and pronunciation. By the end of this program, students should expect to have a better understanding and mastery of French but also a deeper familiarity and kinship with Montreal and Quebec society.

“My daughter’s 9 credits in her French Immersion class in Montreal was well worth the money spent. She not only experienced French every day, she met people from all over the globe, ate new foods and learned a little bit more about herself. As an out of state GMU student the class saved us about $4000. I would highly recommend that you look into this program.”
