The Frecker Spring Program

Spring 2024


May 22 - June 19 (Spring)

About the Program:

The Spring Frecker Program is a 4-week long immersion program in Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon. During this program students complete two Memorial University French courses at an accelerated pace (French 2300 and French 2900) while living with a French family. Classes in Saint-Pierre take place at the Francoforum, a specialized teaching facility, and are supervised by a Director appointed by the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures. All travel and accommodation arrangements are made through the Francoforum.


The prerequisite for admission is successful completion of French 1502 with a minimum mark of 65% or permission of the Head of the Department, following written application. Selection for the program is on a competitive basis and takes into account both results in French courses and general university standing.

Program Cost:

The program's operating costs are covered in part by the funding from the Federal-Provincial Agreement on Official Languages in Canada and from Memorial University's Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.

Participants will be required to pay the regular Memorial University tuition and fees associated with registering for two courses (French 2300 and French 2900). There will also be a program fee of approximatley $1,500*.  This fee will cover transportation to and from Saint-Pierre, room and board, textbooks, participation in cultuiral activities and excursions organized by the Francoforum.
