Education Department: French K-12 Certification

Bonjour! Are you interested in learning another language? Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to teach this language?


If so, Marywood's French certification program sounds like a perfect fit for you! Marywood's reputation for producing outstanding French teachers is recognized throughout the Northeast. Our graduates are leaders in foreign language pedagogy. Guided by the National Standards of the American Council of the Teachers of Foreign Language, our students are prepared in a variety of traditional and cutting-edge methodologies and technology. 

Our curriculum is rich in the areas of civilization, literature, film, and fine arts and is reinforced with cultural events outside the classroom, including travel abroad. Our conversation and language courses challenge both native and non-native students to attain an ever deepening understanding of the Francophile worlds.
