The Virtual Frecker Program

Spring (Intersession) and Summer 2021

May 10 - June 23 Spring (Intersession)

July 5 - 30 (Summer)

The Virtual Frecker Program is a remote-delivered, immersive French language program jointly organized by the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures at Memorial University and the Francoforum in Saint-Pierre.  The Francoforum is a specialized language teaching facility owned and operated by the local Saint-Pierre government.  Under normal circumstances, a Summer Frecker Program would take place at the Francoforum in Saint-Pierre.  However, given the current COVID-19 pandemic constraints, we are offering a virtual format in both Spring (Intersession) and Summer Session 2021.

Admission: 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.

Memorial University is pleased to acknowledge financial support from the Government of  Canada and the Government Newfoundland and Labrador for the Virtual Frecker Program.
