    As most of the FCP courses are taught in French (65% or more), this program is ideal for students from French Immersion and Francophone programs. However, we do accept students who have completed Core French 12 with a high level of French comprehension and expression. The intermediate level corresponds approximately to the B1/B2 level of the DELF certification. For reference, consult the table describing the levels of competence to learn more: DELF-DALF
