French as a Foreign Language at the Centre Universitaire d'Etudes Françaises

In keeping with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), the lecturers at the CUEF adapt to your needs with a constant focus on being creative and innovative.

An interactive and innovative approach
The interactive approach practised respects the balance between linguistic education, cultural education and education focused on communication and learning strategies. The enjoyable nature of working in small-groups (between 12 and 18 students) and the variety of resources used will help you make progress.

French lessons outside the classroom
As the CUEF encourages an intercultural approach oriented towards action, it offers, amongst other activities, themed trips to discover the city and the chance to take part in multimedia or artistic projects. These are all opportunities to explore other aspects of French culture and society.

Instructor: teachers at CUEF

Level: groups can be divided into A0, A1, A2, depending on the students’ needs (a language test will be given to you before your arrival so that you are placed on the best group)

Themes covered: the French language and some French culture

Lecture/contact hours: each group will have a total of 12 contact hours, with 3 of them being outside interacting in real time with real speakers!

Teaching language: French, but possibility to explain in English

Detailed examination modalities: There is no exam, but an overall evaluation of the students’ speaking skills in class with a grade and a specific certificate at the end given by CUEF, so participation and motivation are key!
