Placement Test

French Language Assessment

The Department of French Studies assesses the level of French of incoming students to ensure that they are placed at the appropriate level to optimize their learning of the French language.

Do all students get assessed?

Yes. If you are interested in enrolling in an AP/FR course, please complete the French Language Placement Questionnaire and the Department of French Studies will confirm your eligibility.

  1. Students with no prior knowledge of French will automatically be given permission to enroll in Introductory French AP/FR 1020 6.0.
  2. Students who have completed Grade 12, core, immersion or extended French, will be placed in AP/FR 1080 6.0.
  3. Students who have experience living in a French-speaking environment and/or who went to a French school, will be assessed by the Department of French Studies.

Completed the Form, so what's next?

Thank you for submitting your filled French Language Placement Questionnaire. Due to the volume of emails we are currently experiencing, it may take 2 to 3 business days to respond to your request. Please do not send multiple emails as this will delay the response process.

Upon completing the French Language Placement Questionnaire, students in categories a. and b. obtain permission to enroll.  Students in category c. will be assessed to determine the French course most appropriate for them.

Students will receive email notification from the Department of French Studies once permission is mounted.
