French teaching at the UIEN is geared towards communication and is based on the Council of Europe’s recommandations for modern languages (CEFR). All students are tested upon their arrival and are subsequently placed into groups according to their level. During your training, the teaching support team will be at your disposal to help ensure your individual progress.


Guidelines used by the teaching staff to draft the language-culture courses and workshops.


Monday-Friday 9AM to 12:30PM

Afternoon: WORKSHOPS (for the session of 75 hours)

1- Mondays and Thursdays = 12 hours

2- Tuesdays and Fridays = 12 hours

According to their level in French, students will have two workshops.

Aims of the language-culture classes:
This class helps students of all levels to improve their oral communication skills whilst also developing their written language abilities in professional, academic and everyday situations.

Aims of the workshops:
The workshops aim to provide students with as much practice as possible in diverse aspects of French language and culture. Depending upon the chosen theme, emphasis is placed varyingly upon comprehension and expression, both oral and written.

Workshops will be presented by teachers at the start of each session to help students making their choice.
Some workhops might be cancelled in case of insufficient enrollments.
