Published on

This is WWU’s first faculty-led program to Canada for students of French. One faculty member will be accompanying students for a 4-week program in Montréal, home to the second-largest French-speaking community in the world. Students will be hosted by the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) which has had a strong relationship with our Canadian-American Studies Program for many years. Our UQAM contacts are graciously assisting us in the planning of student housing, meals, local transportation, and other program-related expenses.
Students will develop their French high-intermediate language skills by studying Québécois language and the cultural diversity of Montréal. They will learn the linguistic diversity (vocabulary, structure, expressions), and consequently, its identity in relation to standard French and English. Our colleagues from UQAM will be invited as guest speakers to teach on topics relating to Québécois identity and Québécois-Canadian-US relations. There will be sociocultural excursions to supplement what is learned in class (examples: local museums, day trip to Québec City) during which students will research different topics and themes introduced in class in preparation for a final oral report due at the end of the program.
