The French House is a Living-Learning community currently located in 420 Smithwoods Circle on the University of Alabama’s Campus. The goal of the French House is to increase oral proficiency in a fun and relaxed environment. Students live together in Smithwoods and are guided by a live-in native (or near native) speaker. The students agree to speak French as much and as often as possible, and to dedicate two hours each week to full immersion in a group context. There are weekly activities in Smithwoods and on campus that allow students to develop their French language skills. The atmosphere of the living arrangements and activities is relaxed and focused on helping all students to learn and to grow as much as possible.
Note* The French House will be relocated to the 4th floor of Blount Hall beginning Fall 2013.
