One month intensive courses: February and June


This programme is aimed at all international students including adults, technicians and researchers… regardless of their level of French, who wish to:
- acquire and improve their skills in spoken and written French
- and/or prepare for DELF and DALF.


The ILCF teaches students in groups (of 18 to 24 students) according to their level: A1 Breakthrough > A2 Waystage > B1 Threshold > B2 Vantage > C1 Effective Operational Proficiency > C2 Mastery
