In keeping with the objectives of the French as a Second Language Program, SOFAD offers classroom and distance learning resources that are designed to help learners develop their French-language skills and explore a culture that is not their own. Our learning guides and complementary multimedia resources help learners communicate in French both orally and in writing in a variety of contexts. Learners develop autonomy in choosing the strategies that are best suited to the task at hand and to their role as reader, listener, speaker, interlocutor or writer.
