French Courses and Learning Opportunities

Virtual Conversation Groups

The virtual conversation groups offer a great opportunity to practice your French, exchange with colleagues and ask questions. The groups are led by UPEI students and offer an informal environment. They don’t require a registration or regular commitment and you can join any time of the week depending on your schedule. If you are interested in participating, please communicate with Manon Beaulieu at to request the Zoom link of the proficiency level (Beginner I, Beginner II/ Intermediate I, Intermediate II/III and Advanced) session you would like to join. These levels are based on the UPEI French Placement Test that you can complete if you are unsure of your proficiency level.
