Focus on French!  Taking French language courses at the Institut de Langue et de Culture Française (ILCF) or the Centre International d’Études Françaises (CIEF) is the ideal way to improve language fluency because the courses are specially designed for those learning French as a foreign language. Students are placed in courses according to their French proficiency and take classes focusing on grammar, listening, reading and writing skills in addition to French culture, history and literature.  A yearlong student entering the program with at least 2nd year college French may transition to direct enrollment courses the second semester if their French proficiency sufficiently progresses over the first semester.
