The French refresher course is a self-paced non-credit online language course. The course used to be teacher-led but was transformed into a free self-paced course in 2013.
The course reviews important aspects of the curriculum of the first two years while giving students a head start for third year courses. Every week deals with a new cultural topic and provides students with opportunities to engage in a variety of speaking, writing, reading and listening activities. There are answer keys for most of the activities but students may ask a tutor or their teachers to give them feedback on the open-ended assignments such as essay or speaking activities. Teachers are also welcome to use some of the activities as assignments or repurpose them for in-class use.
