Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT CONTACT HOURS

80 Contact Hours
5.33 Semester Credits

This intensive language program is designed for students at all levels who wish to study abroad in Grenoble. All students take a comprehensive French language course that focuses on writing, oral expression and pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary. Class sizes are no larger than sixteen students. Students receive a maximum of 5.33 credit hours per intensive month session. Students spend three hours a day in class and one hour a day in the language lab. This equates to twenty hours a week, as classes are taught Monday through Friday. There are typically a maximum of sixteen people in each class.  Attendance is required for all classes, impacting both the number of contact hours/credits received and the final grades. Level of French study is based on a placement exam administered upon arrival by the CUEF.

Students may do more than one intensive month session, or they may join the Intensive Language Program, which is a semester program consisting of 3 or 4 intensive month sessions.

All intensive month students are responsible for arriving in Grenoble on the program start date, where they are met by the API resident director. Overnight excursions are not included for intensive month students, though they may be added for an extra fee.
