PREPARING FOR FSL IN CANADA
Preparing for French as a Second Language (FSL) programs in Canada will vary to some extent depending on the precise program you have selected. FSL programs may be part of a university, college, secondary school, or be offered by an independent language school; therefore, you should check with your program to see what they recommend you do to prepare. However, there are some general things you can do to prepare for any FSL program in Canada.

Language Testing
Some programs will require that you have taken 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). This initial test will let the school know what level of French instruction you are 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.

Personal Preparation
There are a number of things you can do to prepare yourself personally for studying FSL in Canada.

  • 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 Canadian culture, customs and the details of day to day life in Canada. This will help you with culture-shock and familiarise you with your host country.

  • Gather things to remind you of home while you are in Canada. Having familiar music, books, movies and souvenir objects can be very comforting if you get home-sick.

  • Research the extra-curricular activities that are offered by the school you wish to go to, or that are available in the local community. You may find your favourite sport or other activity, or you may find something new that looks interesting. If you research before leaving, you won't have to spend as much time in your new country looking for things to do: you can jump right in!

  • Get in contact with other international students already studying at the school or in the region you are planning to go to. A school's administration or student association may be able to put you in touch with current international students who can share their experiences and advice with you.
