While resources abound for students working to achieve an intermediate level of proficiency, many students struggle with the transition to the more broadly focused classes at the advanced level. Indeed, the imperfect articulation between secondary and post-secondary language programs, particularly with regard to credits granted through exams, leaves many students with notable grammatical lacunae that need to be addressed if they are to continue successful study of the language. Le pont is intended to bridge this gap while promoting cultural understanding of the varied groups of people who share French as a common language.
