French placement matrix

French placement tests are taken over the summer online (see the CWLCwebsite). Students should save their scores when they complete the test.

Keep in mind as you review these charts that you don't want to ask yourself if you have ever studied these topics before, but rather, whether or not you would benefit from reviewing them. Most students need to study the same grammar topic several times before they become proficient when using it. The sequence of Elementary French is comprised of three 4 credits courses:FREN 1001, 1002 and 1003 (usually taken over the course of one academic year).
The sequence of Intermediate FREN is comprised of three 4 credits courses:FREN 2001, 2002 and 2003 (usually taken over the course of one academic year).

NOTE: Students who have taken 4 years of high school French are not allowed to take FREN 1001, they must start at FREN 1002 or higher.
