Université d'Orléans

International students

University welcomes foreign students who intend to practice their teaching skills in the framework of a study period or a school placement.

4-week practicum in Centre region

To promote foreign language teaching, every year we welcome trainees from our partners for a placement in local primary schools.  The practice consists of approximately 24-30 hours of observation and accompanied practice per week, from Monday to Friday, in one main class with the possibility to visit and/or teach also in other classes. We encourage the students to become a part of the school life: to join class trips and school outings, participate in extracurricular activities and to teach other subjects in the main class, provided that the level of their language skills is sufficient.

ESPE organizes workshops for the incoming trainees on the following topics: presentation of the local primary schools and the national curriculum, introduction to modern languages taught in schools in France and the appropriate methodology, using young readers’ literature in teaching.

Erasmus Mobility

ESPE welcomes the students of its partner universities for a study period. Erasmus students can follow the courses of our primary level Master program in French, and French language courses too.
