Learning French

Français Langue Étrangère (FLE) for exchange students

All along the academic year, the international relationships office (SRI-E) offers free of charge classes of French language — called Français Langue Étrangère (FLE) —, to students on exchange programs at the Université Gustave Eiffel who need to improve their French. Once they arrive at the university and meet the international office and staff, students will receive an email containing all the information needed: How to subscribe to the French lessons, the date of the placement test, the course schedule, etc. A placement test will determine group levels and will be set up at the beginning of the academic year. This is a three hours weekly program, that starts in October until the end of May. Students on exchange programs who regularly attend these courses may receive three credits (ECTS) per semester.
