french for the workforce

Learn how to boost your confidence while speaking French: from engaging in small talk, standing out in your job interviews, to participating in workplace chit-chat!

In order to register, you will have to take a short written and oral placement test to ensure you are at the appropriate French level. To register, email [email protected] or call 514-878-9788 x324.

French for the Workforce program will go beyond the basics of French grammar. This four-week, virtual course held two days a week, will help you to step outside of your linguistic comfort zone to improve the four French communication skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Through this program, you will practice key job search skills including writing a CV & cover letter and nailing the job interview – all in French! You’ll learn how to optimize your candidacy with French keywords and industry terminology. And you’ll also gain confidence from personalized feedback from your instructor and peers while keeping track of your own progress.

With French for the Workforce, your 2021 job hunt will be all about making yourself stand out as the best fit. Speaking a new language does not mean you have to lose your personality or what makes you unique as a candidate. French for the Workforce will help you to boost your confidence and bring you closer to your job search goals! What can you expect?

· Mock interviews – practice answering the “tell me about yourself” question with ease

· CV writing and comprehension exercises

· Grammar and verb conjugations

· Group discussions and more!

During the four-week course, you will also have the chance to learn from fluent French speakers and industry professionals! Each session will also feature our Mix It Up! Language Exchange and Industry Q&A events. During these events, guest speakers and bilingual professionals will be on hand to help you bridge linguistic and cultural barriers, practice your everyday French small talk, and learn more about language integration into the Quebec workforce.
