French for Engineers - Summer Program

An intense French language program specially designed for engineers. The seminar prepares the students for their engineering studies in France which includes not only numerous cultural and linguistic aspects but also a scientifically oriented curriculum. Our instructors are specialists in the French language or teachers who are qualified in scientific disciplines and who can present the different methodological approaches used in France.

Although this program is highly recommended for computer and engineering students, it is also open to other students, administrators and teaching staff who are interested in improving their French.

The program is divided into 3 parts

• The first and largest part is devoted to improving French language skills.
• The second part of the program introduces the participant to the French approach to engineering and technical vocabulary.
• The third one is an introduction to France and includes brief courses on intercultural issues, France's past and present, and museum visits.
• A tourism module is not included in this program. The museum and historical site visits that appear on the schedule are included only to illustrate specific points described in the lectures. Students are therefore strongly encouraged to arrange their own tourism before/after the program and on weekends.
