While the course calendars for year-long and early calendar students will not match those of traditional block students, year-long and early calendar students are still welcome at any session (and vise versa with traditional block students!) In addition to selecting a session by the schedule, note the material that will be presented to ensure that you are selecting the session that will be most beneficial to you! Students are also welcome to attend more than one session for extra practice! RLCs are located in a separate course in which students will need to self enroll. The link to self enroll is:
Upon entering the RLC course, students will access the RLC room by selecting "Collaborate Ultra" and then the link that says "French I Summer 2016." Students need to log in with both first and last name to ensure they receive credit for attendance. Those who phone in using the teleconference option need to identify themselves to the instructor presenting so their attendance is documented!
