All modules in English

| Modules you need to sign up for | Modules which require no inscription

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 “Specific Skills” modules develop specific competences in language and communication, to enable learners to participate more effectively in academic, professional or social situations.

The EMA contains resources that have been specially designed for autonomous language learning. It is organised in such a way as to allow you to locate easily activities corresponding to your level and to your needs. The EMA will provide you with information and tools to help you manage your learning.
