FRSL courses develop reading, writing, listening and speaking skills and strategies, as well as critical thinking and cultural awareness. All courses are credited and summer courses are available.
Admission and registration
A Placement test is required before admission to any course including Beginners' French. Please refer to the Placement tests information page.
No auditors are accepted.
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.
All students are required to attend class without fail during the first two weeks in order to retain their places.
- Registration to another FRSL class (Instructor's recommendation is required):
Students who have previously taken a French course at the French Language Centre don't need to take another placement test. Please refer to the Recommandations de cours in MyCourses (Notes/Gradebook) to know which course you are recommended for. Please register as soon as possible.
- If you cannot register because the class is full:
If by the time you get to register, the class is full, keep checking on Minerva for an available space and attend the first day of class (and other days until the end of add/drop period), to be put on the waiting list by the instructor and then keep your priority on the instructor's waiting list.
Minerva class schedule contains the most up-to-date information for students preparing to register.
