About this Class

Language in the business world brings a precise set of challenges. If you are someone who requires French for professional development, works within a francophone institution, or is curious about le monde des affaires, this course is designed for you. For students already possessing the B1 intermediate level or higher in French proficiency, this class aims to teach through experience. As such, each section works on mastering a particular element of life in the office. You will learn how to write emails and reports, conduct interviews, draft radio spots, comprehend and analyze press releases and news articles, and compose case studies all while absorbing vocabulary and grammar essential for the industry. No prior business knowledge is necessary to take this class, simply a strong, vested interest in management and economics coupled with a desire to hone your language skills in the workplace.
