Get into the French rhythm in the heart of winter ...

From the 28th of January to the 15th of February 2019, the Cours de vacances offers intensive three-week courses allowing you to improve your French at the University of Lausanne. These courses are open to all non french-speakers over 17 years old who wish to improve their knowledge of the language.

IMPORTANT: We do not offer courses for complete beginners (no notion of French) during the winter.
If you are a complete beginner (you have NO elementary notion of French and you have NEVER taken lessons), we offer six-week courses during the summer.


A. a Principal Programme (in the morning)

    Practical language courses (A1 to C1)
    Introduction to academic texts (B1 to C1)

B. a certified mutual teaching in context programme from B1 to C1, with ECTS credits (in the afternoon)

It is possible to choose only the A or to combine A+B


Your are at an advanced level and wish to learn how to write and orally present an academic assignment in French, the Introduction to academic texts (level B1 to C1) is specifically designed for you.

You can self-assess your French level thanks to the global scale of the European portfolio.
