Semi-intensive course

The semi-intensive course is a program given every morning over 3 weeks in winter and over 3 or 6 weeks in summer. The content and organization of the lessons are adapted to levels A1 to C1 according to the CEFR scale. The semi-intensive course is also offered with an option "Introduction to academic texts" (from level A2-B1). The semi-intensive course aims at learning French through practice in language activities.



It is possible to take the semi-intensive course with the "Introduction to Academic Texts" option  (level A2 must be reached). 

You can find details of this course on Le Fil.




Courses take place in the Anthropole building in the Quartier Chamberonne of the UNIL campus.



The semi-intensive course can be chosen over 3 or 6 weeks. The 6-week version is only available in the summer and cannot be chosen with the "Introduction to Academic Texts" option.
