This course is centered around enhancing French linguistic and communication skills for pastoral contexts. This includes grammar revision, the sharing of French resources such as church and biblical vocabulary, preparation of prayers, and role playing pastoral care situations. Participants may take this course as part of the Certificate in Bilingual Ministry or as a stand-alone continuing education course. At the end of the week, there is an oral and written test leading to the Certificate in Bilingual Ministry for those enrolled in the certificate program.
All applicants should take a French level test (oral and written) during the academic year in order to confirm their language skills (intermediate, at least) or to discuss with our French teacher the best way to prepare for the intensive week if they do not yet have the required level.
