Evening classes - DEFLE - French as a Foreign Language

Evening Classes

Due to the health situation the courses can be either face-to-face and/or distance learning. Therefore, no refunds will be possible.


Evening classes offer students the opportunity to develop and improve their knowledge of French language. Depending on the semester in question and the results of the placement test, programmes of study on offer can range from basic user to proficient, corresponding to CEFR levels A1 to C2.

Evening classes are aimed at foreign adults who are non-French speakers. These are primarily students (Erasmus), language teaching assistants or employees.


Classes take place in Semester 1 and/or Semester 2:

  • Semester 1: from September to December
  • Semester 2: from January to April

Total hours: 50 teaching hours across ten weeks, or 2 sessions of 2.5 hours per week.

Evening classes take place from 5.45pm to 8.15pm.

Class content:

In all classes, students develop their key skills in listening comprehension, oral, reading comprehension and writing.


Students are assessed by a combination of continuous assessment and a final examination. A transcript of grades is issued at the end of the course.

Successful completion of continuous assessment elements and the final exam (with a grade equal or superior to 10/20) may result in the attribution of 4 ECTS credits per university year.
