French Language in Montreal

This unique French language program is designed so Mason students can complete the full university language requirement (9 credits) in just six weeks! 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. Open to beginning, intermediate, and advanced students.
