French Individualized Instruction is an alternative to the classroom track. Students work at their own pace in this program and can register for 2-4 credit hours per semester. Students who complete the full number of credit hours of one course before the end of the semester may proceed to the next level. Our offerings consist of FR 1101, 1102, 1103, and 2101.
Students must have received a B- or higher in their previous French course to enroll in French Individualized Instruction courses.
Progress is sequential from one credit hour to the next, with proficiency at the level of 80% on oral and written tests required for advancement. Regular activities such as conversations, workbook exercises, and self-tests are part of the program. Writing assignments are also required at the 1103 and 2101 levels.
Daytime, evening, and week-end hours provide students with flexible scheduling.
