Attend French language classes at Normandale!

Learn to communicate in the fifth most spoken language in the world (by native and secondary speakers). You will gain a professional advantage because employees who speak French are sought in business, science and diplomacy careers across the globe.

French classes here are small and offer personalized attention with plenty of time to practice speaking, writing and reading French. The program is comprehensive: You can choose among beginning and intermediate-level online French language classes or in person and blended/hybrid classes. They are offered in the fall, spring and summer.

Whether you simply need to meet a French language requirement or want to earn an AA or ultimately a BA in French, Normandale is a great, affordable place to start. When you graduate, you can easily transfer to one of seven Minnesota State schools as a junior majoring in French.
