Students may take full-time language and culture courses eithe for the first or second semester, or for the full year. The School of French as a Foreign Language (EFLE) offers a full-time course, around twenty hours per week, in French language. It provides in-depth training in French as a foreign language in both its linguistic and cultural dimensions and provides the theoretical knowledge of literature, linguistics and teaching necessary to achieve a good mastery of the subject, which includes literature of French-speaking countries, linguistics and sociolinguistics of French, literature and language teaching, and more.

Researching courses in English on an Swiss university homepage can sometimes be difficult and confusing. You can use the ISEP Guide to Course Selection to find information about navigating a university website, finding courses in English, French and German and some translations of common words and major fields of study.
