About the Community
The French Language Program, founded in 2002, allows students to live together 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, weekly conversation hours and parties.
The program is sponsored by the Department of French and Italian. Students of all language ability levels are invited to apply to live in this community to further enhance their knowledge and skills. Fluency is not required, but an ability to participate in conversation at your language level is helpful. 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.
All residents of the Language Program live together and in contiguous rooms so as to allow for a maximum level of language immersion.
