About French as a Second Language

About French as a Second Language

Courses in French as a Second Language are open to students in any program who need to develop their oral and written skills in the French language either for use in their future professional career or as preparation for more advanced studies in French linguistics, literature, civilization, translation or in Canadian studies.

Arts Freshman students enrolled in the Option 3: En français may select up to a maximum of 18 credits from FRSL courses.

Admission and Registration

Admission and Registration

A Placement Test is required before admission to any FRSL course, including Beginners' French. All students should bring a photocopy of their transcript from high school or CEGEP. Departmental permission will be given after the student’s level has been determined by a placement test. Where students' levels in French make admission to this Department inappropriate, they will be directed to the Département de langue et littèrature françaises.

No auditors are accepted.

Placement tests and registration take place at the Arts Multimedia Language Facility (AMLF) in the basement of the McLennan Library, 3459 McTavish, on August 25 between 9:00 and 10:45 a.m. and between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m., on August 26 between 9:00 and 10:45 a.m. and between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m., on August 30 between 9:00 and 10:45 a.m. and between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m., and on August 31 between 9:00 and 10:45 a.m. and between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. The schedule and location are subject to change. Please check the EFLC website (www.mcgill.ca/eflc) for the most current information.

Students must bring a headset or earbuds, the kind used with iPods, MP3 players, etc. Only a limited number of students can be tested and they will be served on a first come basis.

Registration is limited and Departmental permission is absolutely required.

As numbers are limited in all courses, students who meet the required standard for any given course are admitted on a first-come, first-served basis, until the day before classes start. As of the first day of class, if places open, the department will accept students who have not yet registered based upon the date their permit was issued with priority being given to the earliest date.

The Department reserves the right to transfer a student to another course if the level is inappropriate. Any absence from class during the Course Change period may lead to losing one’s place to another student.
