French language support for foreign learners (FLE)

These French language support classes are intended for students on exchange programmes and are coordinated by Mrs Marie-Pascale Hamez.
To take part, please complete the relevant section in the application form and make sure you attend your evaluation.

Course duration 

20 hrs of intensive lessons over a one-week period,

followed by 24 hours of weekly classes per term (3 hrs per week over an 8-week period).

You are strongly encouraged to attend each class.

6 hrs of semi-autonomous work at the language resource centre (CRL)

Forming student groups

After the mandatory written evaluation, students are divided into groups to reflect their level of linguistic ability, as defined under the Common European framework of reference for languages (CECRL).

Teaching staff endeavour to meet the language needs of students in each group. The aim is to improve their written expression for the university exams they will be sitting later in the year. Course work is based on activities targeting both language reception and production or oral and written interaction, using authentic material like TV reports, press articles, etc.

Teaching addresses both linguistic knowledge (expanding vocabulary, syntax, usage and conjugation of tenses, etc.) as well as cultural dimensions (intercultural classes, insights into France and its socio-cultural aspects). The aim is also to develop certain skills (language reception and production or oral and written interaction), with a particular focus on argumentation.

At intermediate and advanced levels (B2 and C1), students will also work on the required methodology for university coursework (summary, synopsis, developing a written argument, etc.), as well as practise taking notes and delivering presentations.

SELF-LEARNING FLE SCHEME FOR GERMAN-SPEAKING INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS REGISTERED ON A MASTER’S COURSE

How it works

  • student meets with teacher/adviser and objectives are set out: Dialang or other test, provisional roadmap, recommendations made, strategies determined, contract and evaluation method
  • autonomous work at the language resource centre (CRL) using material chosen based on the objectives set out at the beginning of the learning process, whereby students record their progress in a log and learning journal
  • participation in online platform activities: keeping to the schedule, contributions to forums and work on glossaries, submitting coursework
  • oral production or phonetics workshops
  • interviews and advice by appointment
  • compilation of a portfolio containing the work carried out during the term (see procedure for more specific detail), chosen to reflect the needs of each student
  • self-evaluation and final interview test: attendance at the CRL, entries in learning journal, participation in group sessions and online platform, portfolio and final interview.

Structure

This scheme lasts 9 weeks in the first term and 9 weeks in the second term, with a workload of 2 hours per week (3 ECTS per term).

Students alternate between self-learning and group sessions. Including the coursework on the online platform, this represents at least 30 hours of work.

Attendance is mandatory at the introductory session for the accompanied self-learning FLE scheme.
This session includes a presentation of the scheme and an evaluation of each student.

Ph.D.

This course is for students at any of the 4 doctoral schools on the Cité Scientifique campus (SPI, SMRE, SESAM, Bio Santé) as well as the doctoral school on the Pont de Bois campus. From level A1.1 to level C1.

  • Level A1

Introduction to oral and written French through role-play and simulations in class to meet everyday communication needs.
Understand and use simple language that can be transferred to the everyday situations students face immediately upon arriving in France.
Speak clearly and begin to communicate with people in a professional setting.
Students will be able to understand brief and simple questions and instructions. They will acquire a range of simple syntactic structures and grammatical forms and will practice clear pronunciation of memorised basic expressions and words.

  • Level A2

At this level, students will practice communicating in class as part of simple and recurring tasks so they can interact with others with relative ease in their area of study. They will develop the ability to exchange ideas using common vocabulary and ask for information about familiar topics from everyday life and current affairs.
They will also regularly practice giving brief presentations in class, as well as both understanding and producing simple notes and messages. They will perfect their grasp of everyday syntactic structures and grammatical forms and develop their vocabulary to meet their real needs. Targeted pronunciation exercises will ensure clarity in their diction.

  • Level B1

Students will be placed in various communication scenarios that they will encounter in both public and professional settings. They will be required to produce simple but coherent written discourse and develop their capacity to understand a selection of authentic texts written in everyday French. In class they will be regularly asked to express their views on cultural topics.
Material from radio or television on current affairs or topics linked to the students’ area of specialisation will be used to practice identifying the most important information. Students should sufficiently enrich their vocabulary and master the main grammatical structures to be able to express essential information in different ways.
This level aims to strengthen and enrich both linguistic and sociocultural skills.

  • Levels B2 & C1

At these levels, students will tackle abstract and complex topics relating both to current affairs and the technical aspects of their area of specialisation. The aim is to develop the spontaneity and ease with which they express themselves orally, in particular working on the volume, range and mastery of their vocabulary.
As for written skills, they will develop greater control over their grammar; this will be done by specifically identifying their individual difficulties, with suggested follow-up activities.
Classes will alternate between active group discussions and individual exercises to achieve personal objectives.
