Business French


The French Business course is designed for professionals who want to write quality texts that are clear, concise and precise. To maximize control of the administrative and business language, we will approach this aspect by studying the basic rules of the French language, and then apply them to the business aspect of the language itself. Participants will be able to improve these concepts within specific situations in their workplace.


This training is divided into three main sections: improper expressions, grammar as well as vocabulary and stylistics. The section on improper expressions will serve to “purify” the written language before expanding on them. The second part is a review, as well as further learning of the grammar rules that are essential in forming a basic sentence. The participants will then be able to improve their skills by learning supplemental vocabulary and using a refined style. Gradually, the participants will learn to express their ideas properly when writing an administrative communication.



Any person wishing to improve their Business French skills.

A placement test is suggested before registering for a course (exception: having taken and passed the prerequisite course).
