French Placement Test

This French Placement Test is meant for students who plan on taking French courses offered by the Department of French Studies at Western (Main Campus).

Students who have completed Grade 12 French may enroll in French 1900E or French 1910 or French 1999 with no Placement Test required. Francophone, French Immersion or advanced students should take the Placement Test for possible placement in senior French courses (2000-level and above).

All other students who want to take a French course on Main Campus for the first time should take the Placement Test.

Students may enroll in French Studies courses taught in English with no Placement Test required.

The test is done through OWL (the online learning platform at Western). You will need your Western username and password.
