Summer Schools and French as a Foreign Language (FLE)

Our Summer Schools target international students and professionals keen to improve their cultural knowledge and French language skills. The FLE (French as a Foreign Language) Academy training courses enable you to reach level B2 in French, the minimum required by the French authorities to study in France, and to familiarize yourself with higher education practices in France.

All our short programs, the summer schools and the ISIT FLE²  (FFL) Academy aim to help you take your first steps in one or more of ISIT’s areas of expertise.
