  • Participate in a straight-forward conversation in French
  • Read, with the help of a dictionary, books, magazines, and newspapers in French
  • Understand the general meaning of radio and television news and other programs

Students of the four-year Extended French Program will be able to:

  • Converse freely on familiar topics
  • Read, with the occasional help of a dictionary, books, magazines, and newspapers in French
