Focus: The French Summer Language Institute will introduce French and Francophone language and culture at elementary and intermediate levels.
Minimum Education Level: Undergraduate

The French Department at UVA is pleased to offer an 8-week intensive French language program designed for beginners at the undergraduate and graduate levels. This program includes lessons in class and activities with animators outside of class.

The curriculum incorporates various teaching strategies in and out of the classroom to give students opportunities for authentic interaction and effective language learning.

Unique to UVA’s Summer Language Institute in French, a special track has been created to meet the needs of students preparing to pass proficiency exams or preparing for research in French archives. These students will have the opportunity to combine the regular SLI program in French with a special session in translation specifically designed to address graduate students’ needs. Students taking advantage of the special “Graduate Student Session in Translation,” will enroll and participate in all Institute sessions and activities—morning, afternoon and evening—for the first four weeks of the program. After acquiring a base knowledge and proficiency, during the second half of the program graduate students replace the evening session with the special translation course.

Structure of the Program:

Monday through Friday, students meet for three separate but coordinated sessions: morning, afternoon and evening. This year, classes will start June 13th and end August 5th.

Attendance in the three sessions is required of all students, regardless of whether they are enrolled for credit or non-credit.

Registrations are open. It's still not too late to join us this summer for French Immersion at UVA! Please, feel free to distribute this information to your students.
