French classes for foreign students

If you are an Erasmus student or a student from a university outside Europe that has an agreement with Inalco, you can take French language classes at Inalco to improve your proficiency.

Working on your written and oral French in these classes will help you settle into your host institution and make the most of your stay in France.

Our French language classes are also suitable for students who are not on exchange, but who are enrolled at Inalco in one of our other languages and want to improve their French so they can do better in their studies.

If you are not an exchange student, you can only take French classes at Inalco if you are also enrolling in one of our Oriental language and culture courses.

The teaching is adapted to the student’s level.


Five levels are offered:
  • A1
  • A2
  • B1
  • B2
  • C1
For more information, see the “French classes for foreign students” brochure. You can also contact Evelyne Argaud, academic coordinator of French Courses (evelyne.argaud@inalco.fr)

The final French exams that take place in January only concern students who have not been able to take all the tests for continuous assessment.
