The training is centred on practical aspects : language classes held in the target language accompanied by exercises in the language lab, individual assignments and seminars on advanced issues, writing a dissertation in one of the chosen languages, etc.
We strongly recommend ERASMUS exchanges as a way of gaining complete immersion in one of the two languages.
