French immersion at UH Mānoa – four semesters in one summer…

FR 110: Immersion French-Elementary

Summer Session 1

FR 210: Immersion French-Intermediate

Summer Session 2

These two classes are part of an immersion course that covers in less than 10 weeks French Elementary 101/102 and French Intermediate 201/202. Students will learn to develop intermediate language skills through reading, conversation, writing and listening. They will study vocabulary, grammar, conjugation and develop functional language structures.

The very format of each course – 2 hours and 40 minutes of class 5 days a week for 5 weeks – gives an exceptional opportunity to study French language in depth for a relatively short period of time. It also creates a unique class atmosphere of studies, emulation and support. Students work in groups daily with the professor on a wide range of assignments: questions, short essays, oral skits, articles, songs, foods etc.

Fulfills UH Mānoa Graduation Requirement: HSL (Hawaiian/Second Language)
