French language courses

Copyright © David Venier - Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3

As most courses are taught in French, you may need to improve your French language skills before applying for a study program.

Three centers for French Language and Culture offer intensive French language courses for all levels, and organize language exams (DELF and DALF). Courses are provided on a year-long or semester basis. Summer programs are also available.

For further information on the DELF and DALF diplomas, please visit CIEP website
