French as a Foreign Language

Learning French

Learning French

French as a Foreign Language is available (on the campus of Caluire) and is adapted to international students, depending on their level and needs.

  • In Upper Secondary School: French is taught at three levels – Ab initio, A and B – for the International Baccalaureate. The IGCSE “French Second Language” and “French First Language” exams are also available.
  • In Lower Secondary School: a permanent French as a Foreign Language workshop (FLE) welcomes students depending on their needs. A specialised teacher coordinates the immersion work and ensures a methodological support.
  • In Elementary School: specific sequences of French as a Foreign Language for Schooling (FLESCO14) complete the classroom experience delivered daily by the teachers.
  • In Nursery School: there is no specific teaching for French, since bilingualism naturally establishes itself through daily schooling.
