French as first language

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

This Monday, I had the beautiful surprise of being accepted in the MDCM program! I am so excited about this and really impatient of beginning in August! 

I was just wondering if I could talk with someone who is currently in the MDCM program. 

My first language is French and I would consider myself pretty okay at reading, writing and comprehension. However, I don't  talk in English really often, which is a kind of stress for me. Honestly, I am sure that I would be able to pursue the MDCM program, but I'm a little bit anxious about being in a completely anglophone environment. 

So if someone was in my situation previously and is willing to talk with me about his adaptation, or if anyone had some advice, I would be so grateful!  

Thank's a lot!

Congratulations on your acceptance!

Lots of people in the class are just like you. For many, it's their first time studying in an English environment. So first, know that you won't be alone, and that you'll have a large group of people you can converse with in French and who can understand your struggles with language if any! Everyone makes it, so don't worry about it. You'll have plenty of chances to improve your English, and you seem to have a strong enough basis for that to happen smoothly and quickly. Don't be shy to talk during small groups and make mistakes, or even slide in French words every now and then haha people will understand and again, you won't be alone at all.

Thank you a lot for those messages!  

Yes! I think it will be a bit of adaptation in the beginning, but it should be okay after a few weeks, I guess!

@dreamteam22, I still have some questions, but I am dying on my finals right now hahaha! I'll shoot you a message as soon as I get done with them!
