  • 6 lessons for the professional topic of your choice (3 sessions of 1h30): this course can be taken alone or with another student with the same goals and level. 

Students can, if they wish, take the DFP exams of the Paris Chamber of Commerce in order to validate their skills with a recognized diploma. These exams assess communication skills (written and oral) in French in the main situations of professional life.
