Other information

This is not a post-beginners class. You have a command of the French language and its grammar (how to analyse a sentence consisting of verbs, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns, direct and indirect objects, etc.).  You can understand and convey messages, have simple face to face conversations and talk about activities you like or dislike. You can organise your shopping, holiday planning or hotel reservations for instance, even if you make some mistakes. You will be able to take dictations and work in groups to prepare a presentation on a particular topic with your fellow students and present it to your tutor. You will have a good knowledge of the present, passé composé, imparfait and future tenses as these will form part of exercises.

REQUIREMENTS: Knowledge of French language as described above

REQUIRED TEXT: “Easy French” by Myrna Bell Rochester, McGraw-Hill Education.

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
