WELLINGTON, PEI – March 12, 2014 – Collège de l'Île offers several options to anyone who wants to learn French, to improve their skills or to become fluently bilingual: evening classes, self-directed learning, tutoring and skills maintenance sessions. The next evening classes and skills maintenance sessions are scheduled to begin the week of April 13 in Charlottetown, Summerside, Montague and Deblois. The enrolment deadline is this coming March 23. The self-directed learning courses and tutoring sessions can begin at any time.

The evening courses are offered once a week for 11 weeks, for a total of 33 hours. The oral French program is structured into four beginner levels, four intermediate levels, advanced levels and upgrading courses. Instruction follows a communicative approach in which learners are central to their learning. A different theme is explored at each level. Courses are scheduled for the evening that best suits the preference of the majority in each group.

For those who want more flexible French courses, Collège de l'Île suggests the Pour l'amour du français program, which operates completely based on students' availability and combines self-directed learning with online content and telephone or online support from tutors.

Collège de l'Île also offers a flexible tutoring service designed around the client's needs and schedule, on a short or long-term basis.

Those who are already fairly fluent in French but are looking for a place to practice and improve their skills can take skills maintenance sessions combining informal conversation, a review of certain points of grammar and class presentations.
