BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the Winter 2022 term as informed by BC Provincial Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
This course is designed for students with no prior knowledge of French.

Through interactive classroom activities and utilizing French first-language multi-media materials, students will learn business terminology and the professional communication skills needed to handle business situations. Students will demonstrate their understanding of the French business environment through a range of individual and group activities, assignments and examinations.
