HR Staff Development and the Department of French Language Programs welcome you to the free French at Work Program.
The French classes are structured to enable participants to develop and improve their competence in spoken and written French by consolidating the foundations of their language learning.
This is achieved via participation in various activities in and outside the classroom, created around themes related to work values. Active participation in various components of the workshop (classroom, online, via Lync) is critical to the success of this linguistic training.
The French At Work Program is split into 4 Levels. If a Level is comprised of 2 Modules it is important to note that the Modules do not need to be taken in succession and are simply 2 parts of a whole.
