FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If I already have some French-language ability, do I need to take an entry test?
Whether you’ve already taken courses through the Ministry or are doing so for the first time, the first step is always an evaluation. The results will ensure that you’re placed in a group at the appropriate level for optimal learning.
If I drop out of a class mid-session, do I need to register again for another one?
If your session is interrupted, you’ll need to re-register and start a new session from the beginning, no matter how many classes you’ve taken.
If there's a change in my availability, can I change my class schedule?
The Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI) only authorizes schedule changes at the beginning of the session.

I've taken part-time francization classes for three months. I've also been able to use what I've learned in my daily life. Now I understand a lot of things that I didn't understand three months ago (on the radio, on TV, on the street) and I already feel more confident in speaking French.
My experience at the CIMOI was wonderful. I learned so much and had interactions with other cultures. This helped me learn. Knowing that I wasn't alone in this adventure was a big motivation. It also ensured I only spoke in French because it was the only common language between the other students, which was very positive.Raquel Josefina Perez de Grullon,
