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 "En français" option 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 littérature françaises.

No auditors are accepted.

Placement tests are held at the end of August until places are filled. For the schedule, location, and most current information, check the FLC website at www.mcgill.ca/flc/prospective-students/placement-tests.

Students must bring a headset or earbuds, i.e., the kind used with iPods, MP3 players, etc. Only a limited number of students can be tested at a time and they will be served in order of arrival.

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. Students must attend all classes during the first two weeks in order to keep their places.

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.
