Certificate of Proficiency in Written French

Objectives

The non credit Certificate of Proficiency in Written French - Workplace Communication is designed to offer an intense training in written French as a Second/Foreign Language, from the mid intermediate to the advanced level. For each level, the program includes specific language objectives, various forms of writing commonly used in the workplace, and strategies for effective written communication. It is designed for the acquisition of the linguistic, communicative and pragmatic competency needed in workplace contexts, and comprises a stringent pedagogical follow-up. The program's three levels are compatible with national and international frameworks of reference for languages, such as the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB), the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) Proficiency Guidelines, and the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
