ON-CAMPUS DELIVERY

Learning a new language can enrich your life and enhance your career.  If you’re looking for an intellectual challenge or want to help move your resume to the top of the pile, a Sheridan Certificate in Conversational French will help you develop your French language skills in an interactive and social setting.

You’ll begin by learning French language fundamentals and reinforce your comprehension through oral and written exercises.  As your verbal skills improve, you’ll explore nuances and participate in realistic conversations and social activities.  We offer a wide range of courses for beginners who are just starting out to advanced learners who want to maintain their fluency.  However, in order to earn your Sheridan Certificate in French Conversation Proficiency, you must successfully complete all courses listed in order.  You may be eligible for advanced standing after performing an oral exam over the phone.

Text/Materials Requirements (To be purchased before the first class)

French Beginner 1, 2, 3; French Intermediate 1, 2, 3 and French Advanced 1: En Bons Termes, 10th edition, by Michel A. Parmentier and Diane Potvin published by Pearson Canada Ltd. Important: Students are required to purchase the textbook En Bons Termes only at a Sheridan bookstore which includes an access code for MyFrenchLab online resources. Unfortunately neither Sheridan nor the publisher is able to supply additional material/access codes for students who choose to source the course materials outside of the Sheridan bookstore and didn’t receive all the components.

French Advanced 2 :  Bonne Route by P. deMéo, E. Gesner, and J. Brown published by Harcourt, Brace and Company, Canada available at the College Bookstores. 

Advanced Standing

Advanced standing may be granted upon the successful completion of an oral (by phone) challenge test. To obtain the certificate, you must complete French Intermediate 2, French Intermediate 3, French Advanced 1 and French Advanced 2. For more information on Challenge Testing call 905-845-9430, ext. 8042.

Admission Requirements

Students with no knowledge of French or very limited conversational skills should register in LANG70025 French Beginner 1 or LANG70026 French Beginner 2. Students who possess some fluency are asked to take a short oral placement test before registering to determine their appropriate level. This test is given over the telephone at no cost to the student.

Register now or at least two weeks before classes begin.
