As the lockdown is eased, official examinations will be held in July.
All our courses remain online while we are preparing a progressive and safe reopening of the Language Centre.
We are working on the development of blended learning solutions to adapt to the expectations that a majority of students have expressed in a recent survey. It appeared that “on-site” courses should also be available online, when possible.
We are hoping to return to some on-site courses gradually as of August, and will keep you informed in a future announcement.
To do so, we have implemented strict hygiene and social distancing measures in compliance with the Government’s C-19 guidance and with the French Embassy’s guidelines.
We are looking forward to seeing you again in person very soon!
