French Courses

Wagar Adult Education Centre offers courses ranging from basic to intermediate which are designed to develop the student’s language skills using social, professional and interpersonal situations that mirror real-life experiences. Over time, this will enable adult learners to communicate in the French language competently and autonomously.

The Basic French is part of the Common Core Basic Education Program for adult learners.



The Beginner level is intended for adults with low literacy skills and lays the foundation for lifelong learning.  In these courses, learners comprehend and produce basic texts related to their everyday real-life situations by appropriating the codes and conventions of oral and written language at a functional level.


In the intermediate level, adults are more at ease with the language required to deal with a wider range of real-life situations. These courses enable learners to further develop their language knowledge and skills in order to adequately understand and produce simple oral and written texts on familiar topics.
