Academics at Hanover:
At Hanover, the study of a modern language is rooted in activities and readings that help students see the world with the perspective of another culture. You’ll learn to use language as a tool that connects cultures, business and individuals.
Instead of learning only good spelling and grammar, you’ll expand your cultural awareness through the study of civilization, culture and literature and become a global citizen. Since languages are best learned through immersion, all classes are taught entirely in French. You are encouraged to seize the many opportunities to interact in French in the community and abroad.
Eat, sleep and drink French for a full semester in France. Short-term opportunities for language and culture study in France are also available during May Term.
A number of extracurricular activities provide opportunities for you to enrich your language and social experiences at Hanover. Table Francaise, held twice a month, provides students and faculty with the opportunity for French conversation over lunch. Members of Cercle Francais meet once a month in the Haq Center for conversation, food, and fun with friends and professors.
