Intensive French Language - Institut Catholique de Paris

Institut Catholique de Paris

January Intensive Month 2018 (Jan 3, 2018 to Feb 1, 2018)
Catalog Code: IPRM0118

The intensive month session is offered at beginning, intermediate, advanced and superior French language levels. The course sessions concentrate on grammatical structures and communication skills.

The intensive month serves well as a precursor to the academic year or semester programs at the Institut Catholique de Paris in order to further strengthen students' language skills, though it may also be completed as an individual program. Students who would like to combine the January Intensive Month program with a semester session may receive housing accommodations for the time between programs at an additional cost.

Classes are taught by host university faculty at the Institut Catholique de Paris, and classmates are international students.

All students must take a two part French language placement exam, one portion before departure for the program and the other upon arrival in Paris. The exam will indicate each student's language proficiency level, and will determine the courses in which the student is eligible to enroll.

Please use the following only as a guideline to determine what each student's language level may be. Each semester/quarter is of COLLEGE-LEVEL French or the equivalent of:

True Beginning (A1-1)
Beginning (A1-2)
High Beginning (A2-1)
Low Intermediate (A2-2)
Intermediate (B1-1)
High Intermediate (B1-2)
Advanced (B2-1)
High Advanced (B2-2)
Superior (C1)

Please note that a student's French language level in France is based on the standards of the French university.
