About our Department
The French Department was established in 1966 and then had a class of fifty girls. From August 1980, the department had five specialized classes, girls and boys alike, and the number of students has increased to 250 students. In addition to the general education program in five years (High School program and baccalaureate + 2) University education program in four-year cycle (level license, baccalaureate + 3) was proposed in 2001: each class had about fifty students, for a total of 200 students. Two-year College program (first two years of license, baccalaureate + 2) was opened the same year (2001). Thanks to the independent admissions that take place every year in June or July the students of the French Department can continue to receive advance education program in French for two years and so successfully obtain a university degree. Each class of two-year College has about fifteen students for a total of about 30 students. In 2004, the French department opened a new class of fifty students for the four-year program, for High school students or students in vocational program. With its four distinct formations, the French Department, once fenced admissions, records approximately a total of 895 students.

Curriculum Design Concept
The educational objective of the Department is to cultivate and enhance logical thinking and the ability to develop professional skills in two languages, namely French and English.
Program of the four-year college:
The first and second years are focused on learning the four basic skills of the French language (oral and written understandings, and oral and written expression), while strengthening English language courses to promote bilingual learning. During the third and fourth years, we introduce courses about French-speaking countries history, geography, politics, economics and social sciences, culture, in parallel with language courses. Learners, according to their own inclination, can choose a specialty from the 3 cross-cutting modules offered by the university.
Program of five-year system:
It focuses on learning the basics of the French language. The first three years are focused on the four language skills in both target languages, French and English: grammar, oral and written expressions, phonetic and oral and written comprehensions… The next two years is devoted to specialization courses (trade, tourism, journalism, etc.) that require some command of the language, so that language is a tool for the acquisition of professional skills.
