Please see the Faculty of Arts and Science Calendar for a complete list of possible courses.
Only the 2 (most advanced) courses of the 5 conversational courses count towards our program concentrations. There are 5 conversational courses in total: FREN P16, P17, 118, 219, 320. The French Minor concentration counts FREN 219 and FREN 320, and the French Medial and Major only count FREN 320 towards their concentration.
To retain your place in the course for which you have or would like to register, you are required to take a placement test. This will ensure that you are registered in the appropriate French course. Please note that you will be required to show proof of having taken the test on the first day of classes. To do so, click on the following link: https://moodle.queensu.ca/login/index.php
Once you are on the Moodle page,
This test has an audio component. To hear this component, Adobe Flash Player is required. Please ensure that your computer volume is not muted.
This test has 107 questions. 100 of these will be marked. 7 of these are examples and will not be marked. You have 1 hour and 1 attempt to complete the test. To have enough time to complete the test, it is important that you pace yourself accordingly. Once your hour is up, there will be no opportunity to revise or redo a question or part of the test.
You may complete the test at any time at your convenience. However, doing the test as soon as possible will help ensure that you are registered in the appropriate course.
To finish the test: After clicking “Next” on the last question of the test, scroll down and click “Submit all and finish”. This will take you to a page that will have your name, your overall score (out of 100), and your overall feedback (See Advisor, FREN-P11, FREN-P12, FREN-100, FREN-110, FREN-110 or Year 2). You are required to print this page and present it to your instructor on the first day of classes. Providing this page will ensure that you are registered in the appropriate class.
If you have taken this test before registering for any French course, register for the course that the feedback recommends. Please note, “See Advisor” means to contact the Department of French Studies.
If you have taken this test after registering for a French course, and the course you have registered for is the same as the feedback has provided, stay registered in this course.
If you have taken this test after registering for a French course, and the test provides you with feedback that is different from the course for which you have already registered, drop the course you are in, and add the course from the feedback of your placement test.
