“Future students can expect Collège de l'Île to provide them with French language training that matches their knowledge of the language. They will gain lots of knowledge of French and if they need help with grammar or vocabulary the Collège will give them training and courses to assist them,” explained Ryan Reddin, student in the proficiency maintenance sessions at Collège de l'Île
Collège de l'Île offers several options for learning French: evening classes, self-directed learning, tutoring and proficiency maintenance sessions. The self-directed learning and tutoring sessions can begin at any time. Collège de l'Île invites anyone who wants to know more to view a new video that explains the various options for learning French at the Collège and includes testimonials from students.

Evening courses, offered once a week for 11 weeks, are 33 hours long. 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 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 what the client wants to do and offered when the client wants to do it for the length of time the client has in mind.
Those who are already fairly fluent in French but are looking for somewhere to practice and improve their skills can take proficiency maintenance sessions combining informal conversation, a review of certain points of grammar and class presentations.
Collège de l'Île is the only postsecondary French-language institution in Prince Edward Island. With three learning centres in DeBlois, Wellington and Charlottetown, the College offers regular programs, customized training and training based on labour market needs. It offers a stimulating, student-focused learning environment that uses cutting-edge technology.
