D    French and German Languages

The Centre for Language Studies currently offers a number of French and German language modules from beginner to advanced levels.

European Studies major students should refer to the European Studies Department Degree Requirements at Section 2.2.2.1 G for the language requirements for European Studies.

There are no prerequisites or qualifying tests for students who wish to enroll in LAF1201 French 1 and LAG1201 German 1. These two modules are meant only for complete beginners who have not learned the languages previously. Students with previous knowledge must take placement tests to be placed at the appropriate level.
