Emphasizing the basic linguistic structures and verb tenses, this course has been structured for true beginners of French.

Readings from short texts and everyday encounters (Métro, bank, stores, markets and cafés, etc.) will further help students to quickly become self-sufficient through basic language skills. Only visiting summer students should register in this course. To ensure that participants are placed in the appropriate level, all visiting students in the Immersion Program take an online placement test. The course has an extra course fee of 100 euros.
