French Language Assessment
The Department of French Studies assesses the level of French of incoming students to ensure that they are placed at the appropriate level to optimize their learning of the French language.
All students who wish to enroll in a French course need to contact the Department of French Studies. The first step is to complete on screen a brief questionnaire on prior studies. Please send the questionnaire to firstname.lastname@example.org
