Academic year 2018-2019

 IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR LMD STUDENTS FOR GERMAN, SPANISH, ITALIAN, RUSSIAN, CHINESE (not ENGLISH or French as a Foreign Language)

 

Some scientific courses allow students to choose a different language other than English as their compulsory language or as an option (languages on offer: German, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Chinese). It is not possible, however, to start a language as a beginner in the 2nd Semester.

All language classes will now take place on both campuses: the Vallée Campus (Building 336) and the Plateau Campus (Language Centre, Building Gustave Eiffel / CentraleSupelec, Plateau du Moulon).

The dates/times/location of classes for all languages (other than English) can be downloaded here (subjet to change depending on the number of students enrolled).

After enrolling with your scientific pedagogical secretary, you must then sign up with the Language Department to finalise your enrollment on a language course and take a placement test.

To do this, please fill in a line in the following table:

Once you have filled in the Google Doc, you will be contacted from September 14th with information on how to take a placement test so that you can be assigned a group which corresponds to your level.

Lessons start in the week of September 24th.

Every effort will be made to satsify your request, but in case there are not enough students enrolled in the course of your choice, we advise you to have a second choice.

In terms of evaluation, there is no final exam but continuous assessment only. Presence, participation are therefore of utmost importance.

Students can also prepare for exams organized by the Goethe-Institut and the Instituto Cervantes which fit into the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
