lessons on French as a foreign language as well as local culture.
Students spending the third semester in Berlin or Barcelona will be
offered local language courses during that time.

While most internship-offering institutions have English-speaking
workforces, students will be offered courses in the local language
during the semester preceding their internship, to facilitate their
integration in the organization. Each partner will be responsible for
assessing the language skills of the students.
Language Skills Certificate

Upon completion of the programme, students are awarded a Europass
language certificate recording their language skills.
