French: Summer Intensive Elementary French

Program(s): Sli Precollege, Sli Undergrad

This course is currently at capacity. Students who currently are on the waitlist will be given priority if places become available.

*Taught Online*  Summer Intensive Elementary French is an eight-week course which is designed to help students with no prior French. Students will develop intermediate proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, and listening for use in everyday communication. Summer Intensive Elementary French is the equivalent of the FREN 10100- 10200-10300 sequence offered during the regular academic year, and successful completion of the course will fulfill the College’s language competency requirement for UChicago students. This summer, the course will be offered online and it will be adjusted accordingly. The course includes a break between morning and afternoon sessions.

Course Considerations

This course is intended for students who have no previous knowledge of French and for those who need an in-depth review of the very basic patterns of the language. (Those with prior French must take the placement exam well before class starts.)

Students will be expected to schedule and attend several short conversations on an online platform outside class hours. Online cultural activities will be offered as part of the course program. Additional details will be provided once class starts.
