    Language courses

    English


    To get an IFP School degree, all students must obtain at least a B2 level of English (e.g. TOEIC score of 785 or above). However, students must aim for C1 level (TOEIC score of 945 or above) since having a very good command of English is essential in the energy and automobile sector.

    Upon joining IFP School, all students must take an internal test within IFP School to assess their current level of English. If they do not get this score at the beginning of their studies, they must take English classes once or twice a week, and can take the TOEIC again in the course of the year.

    These classes are mainly dedicated to preparing the TOEIC and improving their spoken English. Students are encouraged to use the Language Hub, which is dedicated to foreign languages (books, games, magazines, DVDs and documentation preparing students to take tests).

    Note: students applying to an English-language program must give proof of a TOEIC score of at least B2 level (785 or equivalent) before the Admissions board convenes.

     

    French


    Required classes are provided for students enrolled in a French-language program and needing to improve their French. Classes are twice a week. The purpose of these classes is to help students understand syntax rules and vocabulary, to communicate in everyday situations, and to adapt more easily to the French culture. Students with a higher level can take optional classes, with topics in culture and civilization, written expression techniques and phonetics.

     

    In addition, French courses are proposed to students undertaking English-taught programs to help them get used to life in France and adapt more easily to the French culture.


    Spanish and German classes can also be offered, depending on the demand.
