As an enhancement to its French Language curriculum, the College of Arts and Humanities has developed a study abroad program for undergraduate students interested in French Language and Culture at UCF.
Students will have the opportunity to further develop their oral, aural, and writing abilities while learning in the context of France.
The French Language and Culture Program will be hosted by the University of Paul Sabatier Toulouse III. Students will begin their program for one week in Paris which will include visits to museums, castles and main points of interest. Students will then transfer to Toulouse for courses taught by the University of Paul Sabatier Toulouse III and will have weekend excursions to the south of France including Bordeaux, Nice and the Côte d'Azur.
Students will be tested for their language level prior to beginning the program and be assigned to a class accordingly. Classrooms will have a combination of students of the same level from different areas all over the world that are learning French as a second language.
Participants will be evaluated by a combination of weekly quizzes, homework, oral presentations and final exams. While in France, students are expected to speak in French at all times, remain engaged in the program’s experiences, and take advantage of the French culture.
Students on this program should plan to arrive in Paris, France by noon on the starting day of the program in order to be in country to transfer to the hotel. Please note, check flight schedules carefully before booking. To arrive by noon on the starting day of this program, fights must depart the USA the day before the start of the program.
