Classmates are international and American students, and courses are taught by host university faculty. 

All students take a two-part French language placement exam: one portion before departure and the other upon arrival in Paris. The exam will indicate the student's language proficiency level, and will determine the courses in which the student is eligible to enroll.

  • Students who place into the True Beginning (A1-1), Beginning (A1-2),
  • Students who place into the True Beginning (A1-1), Beginning (A1-2), High Beginning (A2-1) or Low Intermediate (A2-2) levels are required to take a French language course.
  • Students placing into the True Beginning (A1-1) or Beginning (A1-2) levels can take one English class in addition to French language per semester.
  • Students placing into the High Beginning (A2-1) or Low Intermediate (A2-2) can take up to 3 French civilization courses or 2 English courses in addition to French language per semester.

 

Scheduling: Culture & Civilization courses are typically in the afternoon, and French language courses are in the morning. To avoid course scheduling conflicts, it is recommended that students take a combination of French language and culture courses.

  • Please Note: courses are subject to change. Course syllabi available upon request.
