COURSE DETAILS

The FLE pre-mobility course is aimed at prospective exchange students and international students who intend to enroll in an academic course in Geneva. It provides first class preparation for further studies through a first contact with the French language and also includes an introduction to the academic setting as well as the geographical and socio-cultural environment of French-speaking Switzerland and Geneva. The objectives of the pre-mobility course are twofold:

 

- to provide an introduction to the French language and lay the foundations for a more systematic study later on in the classroom;

- to better understand the academic environment  as well as the geographical and socio-cultural context of the region in order to  successfully settle in Geneva.

 

This course consists of 10 online modules which are taught over four weeks. Each module requires 2-3 hours of online individual learning. This course includes sessions of 30-minute video-conferences in groups of 5 students with a teacher. These sessions will take place according to the time zone of the various geographical areas.
