French

French is an official language in 29 countries and several international organizations, consistently making it a popular and valuable language to learn. Whether you are moving or travelling to a francophone area for business or a relationship, or wishing to improve command of your family’s original language, our French language courses can help you join the conversation.  A good command of French can also be beneficial when applying for positions within the Canadian federal government.  For many learners, studying French is an important life-long goal, especially for those with a passion for philosophy and literary criticism, which has its roots in French history. 

Whether you have some knowledge of French or you are starting from scratch, our French courses can help you break the ice in the workplace, surprise and delight your family, or give yourself an edge as you explore French culture, literature, and history.
