An optional course, PS 616 Spoken French in Context, will be offered in the Fall term. It is designed at an intermediate level, intended to refresh and reinforce linguistic skills students have acquired through previous French language training (e.g., senior high school or university courses). It aims to strengthen proficiency in oral expression and comprehension, through the study of specialized vocabulary and situational learning scenarios, such as role-play exercises.

This credit only course is taken as "Extra to degree", which means that it appears on a student's transcript, but the grade does not count toward their academic average. At any point during the term (but before the exam period), students may voluntarily withdraw from the course without academic penalty, if they no longer wish to continue.
