|Description:||The French Language and Literature Program at King’s is designed to foster an appreciation of the various literatures and cultures of la Francophonie as well as to develop a variety of skills that will serve you well in the future. We offer a range of language and literature courses to help you hone your language, communication, and research skills. Our small classes provide an excellent opportunity for you to interact with your classmates and your professors.
Being able to speak French will open up career opportunities in teaching, business, government agencies as well as in many other sectors. Our students have the opportunity to spend the third year of their French program at the Université Catholique de Lille. Studying abroad can be a life-changing experience, a chance to see the world, to make new friends, and to learn to appreciate cultural differences. We have a free tutoring service for students having difficulties with French grammar or composition. Every year, two graduate students from the Université Catholique de Lille will help you improve your pronunciation and conversation skills in the language lab. You can join in extra-curricular activities such as French film nights and casual drop-in conversation hours to further enhance your French experience at King’s.
