A course refers to a variety of learning programs for students looking to expand personal and professional opportunities. It may vary in length from just a few days or cover many classes over several months. A course is often used to provide additional training and qualifications.

What is a course in language studies?  A course in this area may be taught online or in a classroom setting, and it may be conducted in a country where the language is commonly spoken. The main purpose of the course is to improve the class’s ability to speak, write or communicate in a particular language. The course may emphasize a particular area of language skills, such as spoken or written language or the specific vocabulary of a type of work environment.

Students who enroll in a course of language studies typically learn to speak and write more effectively in a non-native language, an important skill for gaining work in another country. They may also learn to better understand the cultural customs of a foreign country, allowing for better integration at work and at home.

The expenses of a language course depend on a variety of factors, including the country of study and the duration of the program. Interested scholars should contact each school to learn more about the costs of each course option.

Enrollees in a language studies course may be looking to advance at a current job or gain employment in a foreign country. They may be in demand with schools, tour companies, corporations and government agencies. They often find work as language teachers, private tutors, tour guides, interpreters, consultants and public relations agents. They may also advance in careers as translators, writers, editors and media analysts.

Organisation and courses contents

The yearly courses at the CIEF are composed of 2 semesters of 13 weeks each.

The first semester (the winter semester) starts early September and ends just before Christmas.

The second semester (the spring semester) starts mid-January to end mid-May.

The new students are, at their arrival, positioned after a written test and an interview with a teacher at an adequate level.

The CIEF offers 6 different levels, each composed of 16 to 18 hours of weekly courses, with at least 1 hour of autonomous work in the Languages Resources Centre (CRL), guided by a teacher-tutor.

DUEF A1 (Level A1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: CECRL). This course is usually not provided in the spring semester. This level usually concerns the complete beginners or the “false” beginners. The course is essentially based on a progressive manual. It is completed by a specific course focusing on the speaking skill, and another one focusing on the pronunciation skill. There is also a part of the course dedicated to a cultural and civilisation aspect as well as to the discovery of the University environment. DUEF A2 and DUEF B1.1 (Levels A2 and B1.1 of the CECRL) These 2 consecutive levels welcome the students who already have acquired the fundamental basis in the French language. The learning of the grammar intensifies. The oral and written skills are acquired via a progressive manual and other specific courses focusing on different skills. There... [-]

Discover your Origins

Offered by our school in Milan

Italian history books are often full of images of entire families, mass-moving from Italy to foreign countries, hoping to find a welcoming city where to work and raise their children. We all remember the great migrations to North America (the United States and Canada), South America (Brazil, Argentina, and Venezuela) and faraway Australia. Many families also moved to Europe, to neighboring Switzerland or Germany and the United Kingdom.

In order to still “feel at home", Italian emigrants went on talking to their children and descendants in their mother tongue - from the dialect to the modern language - telling them stories and traditions about their place of origin.... [-]

Best Courses in Language Studies 2019/2020.

Studying English is like learning to play a musical instrument. Whether you want to learn how to speak English or how to improve reading

English, the more you practice - especially spoken English, the better you get at all the other skills. It's a simple principle. It's still a lot of work, but if you follow that, you will be successful.

Most ESL classes spend too much time learning English grammar. It's true that grammar is important, but learning language is like learning to swim. You can't do it by reading a book -- you have to practice!

GEOS' ESL courses are designed to give students more practice. GEOS students have English classes every day for just Speaking and Listening. Because GEOS has more English speaking classes, our students learn English faster. ... [-]
