French Language and Literature


Antidote is a French language learning tool designed specifically to help students with their writing assignments by including a very complete spell checker, an on-board French dictionary, a sophisticated thesaurus as well as grammar and syntax guidelines. It goes well beyond the capacities of Microsoft French spell-check and it is highly recommended  that you use this tool when submitting a paper for a French class.

You can access Antidote on specific computers that are available in the Center for the Study of Languages & Culture (CSLC), located in O'Shaughnessy Hall. You can also choose to purchase your own copy of Antidote from the vendor, Druide Inc., at
