IMPORTANT : because of the current health situation, our autumn 2020 courses will be distance-taught. The concept will remain interactive: an alternation of direct online contact, work in sub-groups (video conferences) and private (individual) study. We use a stimulating and motivating didactic approach, and encourage the active participation of everyone involved. You will receive more precise information when the groups have been formed.

We offer language courses which can be both in parallel to your study program or integrated into your curriculum. These course are designed to meet the needs of students at university and, later, of professional life and social integration.

The transparency and coherence of our modules is ensured by linking them to current European standards.

Learning a language requires a considerable investment in time and effort, both inside and outside the classroom. Before registering for a module, make sure that you have sufficient time to do the work required.
Remember that if you are placed in a group, you are expected to attend the module on a regular basis and to follow it from start to finish.

Modules you need to sign up for

The objectives of the “integrated skills” modules are to enable participants :

  • to begin to learn a new language
  • to develop existing skills and make them more specific

These modules are largely based on communication. They aim to develop skills which will enable learners to use the language for various reasons in a variety of contexts. These modules also aim to develop cultural and intercultural aspects as well as the ability to learn independently.

Teaching methods and activities are varied and interesting. They involve discussions, listening exercises, role-plays, games, watching videos and reflecting on how we learn.


Modules which require no registration

To allow you to learn a language without joining a module, the Language Centre offers on an almost daily basis, free-access periods in the Multimedia Centre. You may go at any time (no need to register), so long as it is a “free-access” period (see times on our homepage), and benefit from resources specially designed for autonomous language study.

The way the Multimedia Centre is organised will allow you to locate activities corresponding to your level and needs, and provide you with information and tools to help you manage your learning.

Someone will always be on hand to help you understand how the Multimedia Centre works and show you how to access material.
