Depending on the results of your Immersion admission test, you will receive a recommendation to register in either FLS 2581 or FLS 3581 as an accompanying language course for one or more of your regular content courses taught in French. These courses are not compulsory, but are recommended in your first and second year to help you build a strong foundation of French skills relevant to your discipline.
FLS 2581 – Immersion I : Compréhension orale et écrite
French course for non-francophone students, linked to a 3-unit content course taught in French.

The students will work on exercises to help them acquire vocabulary and strengthen grammar, recognize the structure of oral and written texts, extract the main ideas and better understand the arguments.
