Presentation of the summer courses: main principles

  • The summer courses focus on the discovery of Provençal culture (songs, gastronomy, oenology, artistic heritage, writers and artists, summer events in the region, regional language, etc.), this point could be the subject of an exchange between the teachers.
  • The program is based on 20 hours of classes per week, including a compulsory excursion on Wednesday. This outing will be the subject of class work (before and/or after), language activities on the day and an evaluation (and very demanding teamwork).
  • For each session, the French language and culture courses are spread over two weeks, with approximately 4 hours of classes per day.
  • A course syllabus will be distributed to students. A transcript with a grade per competency will be obtained if students have been diligent. Attendance in all courses is mandatory for the transcript to be issued.
