Intermediate French for Diplomats aims at reinforcing communicative and linguistic competence while at the same time giving the learners an opportunity to learn French for immediate use in their diplomatic profession. The approach used is a communicative one. Each lesson is based on texts, excerpts and articles related to international affairs and diplomacy that will stimulate learners’ participation and free reactions. Learners are indeed expected to give their own opinion using acquired grammatical structures, vocabulary and savoir-faire.
