PREPARING FOR FSL IN ALBERTA
Preparing for FSL in Alberta can give international students a head start before beginning their studies. What you can do to prepare will depend partly on the particular FSL program you will be taking. Start by checking with the university, college, secondary school, or independent language school you hope to attend for recommendations on how to prepare. However, there are some general things that can help prepare you for any FSL program in Alberta.

Language Testing
Some schools offering FSL programs require that you take a diagnostic test, such as the Diplôme d'études en langue française (DELF), Diplôme approfondi de langue française (DALF) or the Test of French (TEF). These tests help the school know what level of French each student is ready for. The school may offer the test, or they may require it be taken in advance. Other schools may have their own placement test, or they may not require one at all. You can prepare for these tests by searching online for practice tests. Doing practice tests will give you a sense of what to expect, and will let you see which areas of your French need the most work.

Personal Preparation
In your personal day-to-day life, there are also a number of things that can help in preparing for FSL in Alberta.

  • Practice the French that you have. Watch television or movies in French, listen to music in French, and if possible have conversations with other French-speakers in your area.

  • Get familiar with the culture, customs and the details of life in Alberta. Studying abroad isn't just about the programs, but also about the cultural experience. Learning about your new environemnt before you go can help you avoid culture-shock.

  • Research the extra-curricular activities that are offered by the schools you are applying to, or that are available in the local community. Knowing you can look forward to a favourite sport or other activity--or the knowledge that new and exciting things await you--can be a great motivator.

  • Get in contact with international students already studying at the school or in the province. Institutions offering FSL are often willing to put you in touch with other international students who can share their experiences and advice on preparing for FSL in Alberta.
