Situated between Brussels, Lille and Paris, Mons is a city with a fantastic architectural heritage. The medieval streets invite you to leisurely stroll and the cafés of the Grand Place are particularly inviting in summer.
The University of Mons is well-known in the fields of linguistics and language-teaching methodology.
As one of the European leaders in language-teaching methodology, UMONS works closely with institutions that supply state-of-the-art research in this area.
The International Summer Courses offer the possibility of language proficiency in a French-speaking atmosphere, and are organized by French-speaking teachers.
The courses are aimed at any foreigner wishing to acquire or improve his/her spoken or written French. Class-levels are organized from elementary to advanced.
The students’ proficiency level will be assessed on the first day, in order to place them in the group that best corresponds to their level and in which they will progress the best.
The courses take place 5 days a week in the morning and in the afternoon (a total of ± 100 hours).
In addition to the French courses, various cultural visits, conferences, workshops (literature, songs, theatre, ...) will be offered depending on the level of the student.
At the end of the session, an attestation in conjunction with the Common European Framework of Reference for languages of the European Council will be rewarded, provided the student attended classes and activities on a regular basis.
