While the course welcomes any intermediate-advanced learner of French wishing to further enhance their command of the language, many participants will be pre-service teachers of French and in-service educators seeking continued education. 
 
This synchronous online course will be taught at 5 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday of each week from August 21 through December 15.  Cohort participation is important.
