Students will be invited to participate in dynamic oral practice to encourage expression of ideas in collective projects, but also opinions to present formally and informally, as well as incorporating new vocabulary and idioms depending on the field of choice.

Depending on the level, reading excercises of technical and professionnal documents are aimed at acquiring confidence in decrypting and understanding professional written French and sometimes hard to read official texts like public policies, laws, business contracts, etc.
