New Core Class for Fall Term

Accelerated French

You'll find two new accelerated classes this fall. In addition to the beginning level 101/102 Accelerated, you can keep going at warp speed with 103/104 Accelerated. For those of you who are ready to start the 200 series, you can blast ahead with Intermediate 201/202 Accelerated.

Introduction to French

Take this class before starting with Beginning French 101 to  prepare yourself gently for the immersion method and learn some basics that will prepare you to continue smoothly into the Beginning French series. This class begins October 21, Part 2 of Fall Term.

The Core Classes includes Beginning 101 through 106, Intermediate 201 through 206, and the B1 and B2 Edito Series. Most classes move at the regular pace. These classes take students from the A1 Beginner Level through the B2 Proficient Level. Read how to assess your level of French.
