Top Courses in Intensive French

A course is a program of study commonly taken by high school graduates looking for the next step along their career path. These programs tend to last between several months and one year, at the end of which students are often awarded certificates or diplomas.

Intensive French is one such course that students can choose to pursue. What is a course in intensive French? This program is intended to give students a rapid and deep understanding of the French language, often through the process of immersion in the language. Students regularly engage in oral practice, both conversational and formal, as well as completing listening and reading comprehension assignments. Many courses also integrate a writing component, giving students the tools needed to successfully and persuasively write in French.

One key advantage to taking a course in intensive French is the fact that learning a new language stretches one's brain in healthy ways. Bilingualism has been shown to be good for the brain, and can also enhance one's travel experiences when abroad. An intensive course offering immersion is among the best ways to rapidly learn a new language and enjoy all of these benefits.

The cost of a course in intensive French will depend in part on the school's size and location. Contact schools directly through their admissions offices to learn more. 

Intensive French can be used in a wide range of careers within the fields of politics, diplomacy and translation. Whether your interests lie more with one-on-one interactions with native French speakers or with translating French texts, a strong grasp of the language is needed to build a successful career. An immersive course is, for many students, the single best way to build this understanding of the language. 

If you wish to learn French, whether for professional or for personal purposes, a course in intensive French can be the ideal way to do so.
