The French Language Center at EPITA

Since 2010, EPITA has been committed to offering French lessons to its international students to optimize linguistic and cultural integration in their daily lives within the school and in the workplace.

With over 40 nationalities on campus, the French language classes at EPITA are ideal for intercultural encounters, encouraging students to exchange ideas and share experiences.

The International Center for Pedagogical Studies (CIEP) awarded the French Language Center at EPITA the FLE Quality Label certification in July 2015, delivering the highest scores to each of the five criteria evaluated (quality of the instruction and of the teachers, as well as management, student services and infrastructures provided).

These classes are now open to all students wishing to improve their French, whether for professional advancement, to pursue their graduate studies in France or simply for personal reasons.

 

EPITA offers a variety of training programs to meet different needs:

  • Daily communication
  • Communication in a professional context
  • Preparing for graduate studies in France

 

Teaching

The French Language Center teaching staff is made up of a group of dynamic and enthusiastic certified teachers who are trained to teach French as a foreign language. The classes are developed based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages recommendations (CEFR) and use a professional, as well as fun, intercultural and communicative approach.

To ensure that everyone has the opportunity to actively participate in class, the students are placed in appropriate levels, with a maximum of 16 people per group. The professors use a wide range of multi-media tools and methods (Internet, video, literature, press, radio, cinema, etc.) to make sure that the lessons are lively and motivating, while taking into account their students’ areas of interest.

Located south of Paris on the Kremlin Bicêtre campus, the classrooms at the French Language Center are all equipped with video projectors and WIFI.
