French Language Program

About the Community

The French Language Program, founded in 2002, allows students to immerse in French language and to promote the awareness and appreciation of Francophone culture on campus. The French Language Program hosts events such as art exhibitions, faculty lectures, film series, concerts, theater performances, recitals, and weekly conversation hours.

The program is sponsored by the Department of French and Italian. We welcome all students who have at least completed French 1 (full beginners) at Dartmouth or students with the equivalent level. The French LLC experience will enable students to further enhance their knowledge and skills and a certain degree of fluency is required as all conversations, talks, and events will be mostly conducted in French. If you haven't taken a french language course at Dartmouth, we encourage you to take the French Placement Test offered by the French and Italian Department at the same time as you are filling out the application for this community.

Residency Expectations

Residents are expected to speak French with each other and can also expect to engage with the program on a weekly basis through language tables or other language/culture programming.
