Languages and personal development

The language unit policy is based on 3 axes:

Concerned with training a generation of future engineers and citizens qualified in their field of specialty and good communicators, the language unit sets up programs in accordance with the requirements of the CTI while focusing on the learning objectives of the CEF (Common European Framework).

The approach chosen focuses on communication, culture, and citizenship through a rich content (themes, educational material, activities…). In fact, the documents are exploited on 3 levels: linguistic, functional, and cultural. The linguistic component is highlighted through assignments and simulations in the form of integrated projects, tests, and workshops.

Thanks to the PBL (project/problem-based learning), the learner is placed in a context where the language learning process is not a classical one but an active one where he is the center of the training as the logo of esprit states: responsible learning ( se former autrement).

At the end of the curriculum, the learner is prepared for professional life through a program dealing with: the CV, Cover letter, job interview. The focus will be on soft skills and corporate culture.

The first concern of the Language Unit is to help the maximum of learners reach the required level. As a consequence, the efforts of the trainers are focused on the assessment methods (personalized evaluation grids, consolidation courses...) which are constantly updated.

The language Unit, participates actively in the school’s life through the organization of various cultural events such as a dictation contest (Dictofolie), awareness-raising campaigns, citizen action (Rencart écolo), theatre clubs, moot court competitions, The British Day, The American Day, Esprit without border
