French as a Second Language

All French as a Second Language courses given at the French Language Centre (688 Sherbrooke Street West, 2nd floor, Montreal, Quebec, H3A 3R1), have limited enrolment and mandatory placement tests for all students (including Beginners). Students who have already taken a course at the French Language Centre do not need to take the placement test and should contact: flc [at] to get a permit to register.

Class attendance is mandatory for all our courses.

Placement Tests

Please check our website: for dates. At the placement test, students receive a permit so that they can register on Minerva. All students should bring to their placement test a photocopy of all transcripts showing previous French language courses. Credits will not be given to a student who has taken and passed equivalent courses at a CEGEP or another university.

Students must bring a headset or earbuds, the kind used with iPods, MP3 players, etc.

Visiting and Special Students

If you are not available for testing on the above dates, you should obtain a Pre-Placement Test from the French Language Centre by emailing flc [at]
