The FLE section of the School's Languages and Cultures Department has been awarded the Label Qualité FLE (French as a Foreign Language) with the congratulations of the jury. The committee awarded the section a maximum mark of 3 stars for all criteria (training, teachers, reception, premises and management) underlining the quality of the welcome and support offered to international students in engineering training.
The result of a quality assurance process undertaken by the Ministry of National Education, Higher Education and Research, the Ministry of Culture and Communication and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, the label aims to identify, recognise and promote centres for French as a foreign language whose language offer and services offer guarantees of quality. This label will also contribute to reinforcing the School's international attractiveness.
GENERAL OBJECTIVES OF THE FRENCH LANGUAGE SECTION
To facilitate the academic and social integration of allophone engineering students;
Enable the development of intercultural and teamwork skills;
To prepare for internships (short/long), final year project and professional integration.
OFFER OF GROUP COURSES
The FLE section offers more than 30 modules per year. These modules are reserved in priority for students in diploma training (EFD) and trainees admitted under agreements signed with our partner universities.
Other non-Francophone students of the École des Ponts (PhD students, researchers, masters students, visiting students...) can register depending on the availability of places.
Personalized follow-up is also offered to students who wish to do so and/or for whom the teachers have identified specific difficulties. It is organised individually or in small groups. It meets the different needs of the students:
Phonetic training and pronunciation (by mother tongue group);
Preparation of applications (internships): CV, cover letters, mock interviews;
Correction of departmental work (reports...) and training in presentation;
or other specific needs (oral comprehension, methodological advice, etc.).
