French for academic purposesThis course will strengthen your mastery of French language and methodology, in order to facilitate your integration into university and student life.

Particular attention is paid to university methodology. You will learn, for example, to :
- understand a lecture (identify the key elements, identify its structure, etc.).
- better understand and read specialised books
- know how to respond to academic requests (presentations, briefing notes, text comments, argumentation, note-taking, etc.).

For the duration of the training, you will have access to resources and methodological advice from the Language Resource Centre (CRL), and the University Library.
