Along with English, French is the official working language of the United Nations, NATO, the International Olympic Committee, the European Community, and more. Today, French is spoken in more than 50 countries by more than 125 million people as their native language, and by a billion more as a second or third language. Come along with the French program at MCC and “Parlons français ensemble!”
The French program offers two tracks:
Conversation Track – emphasizes speaking and listening skills. It is for tourists and those desiring minimal conversational ability only. Some of these courses are related to specific areas of employment, such as Spanish for Health Personnel.
Foundation Track – prepares students for courses above the 200-level at any university. The courses 101, 102, 201, 202 are university equivalent. This track is also for those desiring a balanced program. The four skills included: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
