Grammar Refresher

Course for Intermediate or Advanced Proficiency Levels


Our French Grammar Refresher Course is designed to improve and solidify the learner’s grammar knowledge at the intermediate and advanced levels. The focus of this training is a review of major grammar concepts using work-related topics.

Using distance technology provides flexibility, allowing participants to access the course from anywhere. The course is given in real time with a live instructor in Quebec.



  • On WebEx and online
  • Language of Instruction: French


Course overview and structure

This online course reviews the grammar notions at the intermediate or advanced level and gives an overview of some useful written strategies. Clear grammar explanations are reinforced by practical exercises to help the participant master the concepts of the French language.

The course is taught in 2-hour weekly increments over a period of 9 weeks (18 hours in total). The maximum capacity is 5 participants to encourage useful interaction between learners.

LRDG recommends that learners commit to 2 hours of self-study before each session. The course registration includes access to all LRDG online modules for this purpose as well as progress features for study time. In addition to these materials, learners have access to the LRDG Community, reference section and blog for additional learning strategies and activities.

Assistance by an account manager dedicated to La Cité learners

Each session comes with an ESR (End of Session Report) summarizing the work done and providing feedback on progress. The second to last session is comprised of a written evaluation.

The course is provided in a virtual environment and offers two ways to access the online sessions: from a classroom setting at La Cité or from your personal computer, wherever internet is available.


Included in the program

  • Nine (9) sessions complete with an End of Session Report (ESR)
  • Cahier du participant – Learner’s Guide
