The “Académie Diderot” at Rennes School of Business is an FLE (French as a Foreign Language) centre for business environments which enables international students:
- to reinforce their French-speaking skills
- to discover French culture
These new skills will facilitate the professional integration of our international students.
We wish to further support international students in their knowledge of the French language and the codes of French culture so that they can develop their attractiveness to French employers, thus enabling French businesses to fully benefit from their other technical, managerial and multicultural skills.
The topics covered in the different courses and activities revolve around:
- Life in France: a survival guide;
- Brittany, France: culture and traditions;
- The world of work;
- French around the world.
