Description:There’s something special about learning French in Cape Breton. From the impact on local business, to the influence on Canadian culture, one of the two official languages of Canada is taught by dedicated professors, and opens doors to a variety of career choices in education, foreign services, community services and translation, as well as in provincial and federal positions of responsibility.

French is spoken on every continent by millions of people, and is a major asset in business, institutional, professional and day-to-day communications. That’s why our French minor or concentration offers language courses from basic to advanced levels, as well as courses in French literature, culture and linguistics.
