Hyde Park Language Program

A course in Reading French is available to graduate students (and others) in the Chicago area through the Hyde Park Language Program. Designed to help students develop the language skills necessary for academic research, this course emphasizes grammar and translation practice. Thousands of university and seminary students have taken this course over the years to prepare for their graduate language examinations or otherwise to fulfill their graduate language requirements.

The Reading French Course is now taught once a year during the summer, from the second week of June through the end of July. Classes are held at McCormick Theological Seminary in Hyde Park, 5460 South University Avenue, Chicago, IL 60615.
