French As A Second Language

We also offer French classes for our students who are enrolled in our Vocational Training Programs at CDC Pont Viau.  Most programs (especially those that interact with clients or patients) will require functional French Language skills for when students are in stage and for student who want to work/live in Quebec after their studies. For this reason, our school board is offering French classes that are specifically designed to help support our International students so that they can learn and improve their French language skills while studying in Quebec. These classes are given afterschool and are mandatory.

Placement Tests are mandatory for all levels.

Visit the Quebec Immigration, Diversity and Inclusion website for more information about the knowledge of French for foreign workers.
